Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Calculator
Unfortunately most Gatorade drinks have a relatively high salt content which will only exacerbate the damage caused from spilling any liquid on your electronics.
The only hope for it is to REMOVE the batteries (internal as well if fitted) right away and disassemble the unit as much as possible. Remove the back cover and wash whatever parts you can access with a small paint brush and some liberal amounts of Isopropyl Alcohol. Try to clean out any of the remaining drink residue. Don't worry about the alcohol, it will pretty much evaporate on its own once you shake the excess out. Then just let the unit dry out for about 4 days. Leave the unit disassembled and with the batteries out, and don't try to insert the batteries or turn it on before the 4 days are up. If the unit still does not power up after that, then I'm afraid it is permanently pooched.
Thank you very much and good luck.
