Re: Casio E-100 didn't power up.
Does the yellow light come on when you plug the charger in? If so, leave it charging for 2 hours, then do a hard reset while charger is still plugged in. I think, on E-100 it involves holding down Power button, while pressing reset button on the back of the unit with a stylus for a few seconds. Warning: you'll lose all your personal data on E-100 this way - but then again, it's probably lost already.

Hello, if on XP, go to control panel and open up 'Power Options' and look to increasing the 'Running on batteries' settings.
However, you don't say whether it will power up without the mains connected...if it doesn't then maybe you've a bad/poor battery connection, ie it will display a voltage to the monitoring system, but won't allow any current to be drawn....this could be due to a bad connection so it may be worth removing the battery, taking a look at the connectors (maybe wipe them clean) and then refit and try again.
Best of luck
Have you tried changing the batteries? I'd try that first thing. From your description, the problem sounds like you have low batteries. The RAM shouldn't clear itself when you turn the calculator on unless you tried to turn it on when the calculator didn't have any juice. The TI-83 has four AAA batteries and one CR1616 battery it uses for memory backup. The CR1616 isn't enough to power the calculator, just enough to keep your calculator from losing its RAM contents while the primary batteries are out. If you try to power the calculator on without primary batteries, the backup fails. However, the TI-8x line is usually pretty good about warning you when the batteries are low by displaying a big warning message when you turn it on about the batteries being low and a recommended change of batteries. It might not, though, so you really can't be sure until you try a fresh set of batteries. Good luck!
The back up battery always shows 100%, as far as my experience shows. The backup battery is only utilized to retain memory while the main battery is dead. The backup battery charges first, so if the ppc has enough juice to be turned on, the backup battery should be at 100%, unless it is plugged in and you are just now turning it back on. Even so, it will probably still show 100%.
Basically, you left it on too long and all the batteries died. Sorry, but your data is gone :-(
are you checking your adapter. i had the same problem with my casseopeia e115. i searched and searched for the battery which even casio doesn't offer anymore. i bought a battery pack which works great w 4 AA batteries but it's bulky and you lose data when you turn off the batteries. i finally went on to discover that my charger/adapter that plugs into the e115 and the serial cradle was scorched by a lightening strike and it was not charging and eventually the batteries DIED!!! I took the adapter to an electronics repair store and for $15.00 they rewired the adapter and it works!!!! it charged the batteries and worked fine.(altho i have to visit them again because i think one of the new wires is bent and i have to position it perfectly to keep charging.) BTW: any one looking for a new casio battery jk210lt...i have a couple to sell! ;-)
hope this helps
If you had synched the device you have all your data on the desktop pc so I wouldn't worry too much except for some software which may require you to enter the reg info again.
You could try the following.
Remove both the batteries. Install the main battery. Install the backup battery preferably a NEW one.
Let the device charge to the full - until the green charging light goes out.
Switch on the device. It should now behave properly.
It would help if you generally avoid using the device when you get low battery warning. Especially the backup battery.
Blinking amber light means the battery is not fully recharged. Once it is charged, press the power button. If the the device still does not turn on take out the main battery and the backup battery. Put the main battery in first, then the backup battery and put the battery switch in the lock position. Press the power button and you should see initializing memory..., then starting..., then it will ask you to set up the device.
This is what I suggest:
Get yourself a new backup battery.
First backup your Casio.
Then install the main battery.
Plug the Casio in and recharge overnight.
Once recharged, install the new backup battery.
Make sure you do not touch the battery with your hands.
Use a tissue.
This should solve your problem if the Casio is not physically
