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.

Joe.

My TI-84 calculator isn't working. When I press the "ON" button, sometimes it would respond, but most of the time it doesn't. The screen just remains blank. I've changed my batteries...


try taking out the triple A batteries and leaving the calculator to sit with them out for a minute or so, replace them and check if it's fixed. If that doesn't work you can do the same, but take out the small button back up battery as well. If you're still not having luck you should call ti cares (800-842-2737) they're usually helpful.

I have a TI84 plus texas instruments i have removed both the batteries in order to reset the unit but it still has not resetted the unit. All I am getting all zeros on the screen


First try removing all four AAA batteries and the small lithium backup battery (above the four AAA batteries). Leave all batteries out for five minutes, then replace them and try to start the calculator. If this doesn't work...

Replace all but 1 AAA battery. Press and hold the "CLEAR" button on the calculator. While holding the "CLEAR" button down, replace the missing AAA battery. While still holding the "CLEAR" button, turn the calculator on. The display should read "RAM Cleared". Release the "CLEAR" button and press again to remove the message.

If that doesn't work, remove 1 AAA battery again. Repeat the preceding instructions with the "DEL" key: With the battery removed, press and hold the "DEL" key. With the "DEL" key held down, replace the battery and turn the calculator on. The screen should say "Waiting... Please install calculator software now." Release the "DEL" key. Download this program onto your computer (from Texas Instruments). Connect the calculator to the computer using the USB cable provided with purchase. Run the TI OSDownloader program and follow the on-screen instructions to re-install the calculator's operating system.

My for the TI 84 Plus Silver Edition screen doesn't work. I changed he batteries including the back-up. The screen won't light up. I bought this calculator around 3 years ago.


TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen when the batteries are changed so that it appears as if the calculator isn't turning on. Turn the calculator on (or at least press the ON key). Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds and see whether the screen becomes legible.

If that doesn't work, remove all four AAA batteries. Press and hold the ON key for ten seconds. Replace the batteries.

If that doesn't fix it, please append a comment to this post and we'll go on from there.
