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. Does it?

Put new batteries but it wont turn on... it was working before it ran out of batteries about 2 months ago..


Could be the screen has been dimmed so much that you can't tell that it's coming on. Press on and then 2nd button and the up arrow key. You may need to keep pressing 2nd and up arrow key. This is how you darken the screen. You can also lighten the screen which may be the problem you have by pressing 2nd and then the down arrow key.

If this doesn't work, take out the internal battery that is located in a tiny door with a screw right above the 4 AAA batteries. Leave this out for about 8 hours and put it back in. Put in the AAA batteries and the calculator will be reset and may work.

New batteries, does not stay on and is unresponsive


I had the exactly same problem, and my TI 84 plus used to be extremely unresponsive and slow, as I have been fixing the latter problem by blowing really hard into the I/O plot, I did the same to fix the new problem. For many times not thing happened though. Then I insert a metal stick into it and gently hit the inside. In a short time, the calc was normal again!! Now my calc even turns on when it's been put off, with its cursor frozen. I simply use my little finger to dig/scratch the plot and see the lovely cursor beating again.

I was borrowing the camera so the simple solution was quality long life batteries than the cheap versions (even though they were new) I had installed.

Batteries drains quickly


I had something similar, it kept saying "battery low" after putting in new batteries. Try the Clear method; Take out one battery, hold the Clear button, while holding it insert the battery again and press on, and release. Now press clear again, turn it off and turn it back on again. If that doesn't help... well it must be something else... sorry :S
