    Alright, this is a really bad problem.

    My TI-83+ just died on me. It wont turn on. I tried replacing the batteries, but it didn't do anything. The thing just won't turn on. The worst part is, I have a major math test tomorrow, and I REALLY need the calculator to finish the test.

    Is there anything I can do?

    Though you've probably already checked, try turn the contrast up/down, sometimes people like to play pranks, and turn it all the way up/down, seeming like the calc. is dead.

    Then go to your school early tommorow, find the head of math teacher, and see if he has one that you could possibly borrow for the test. They should have at least a few lying around. At my school, we have 3 class sets, so I never have a problem finding one.
     
  7. Find a friend with one or ask the teacher as mentioned before. I have the same exact calculator and mine just half-broke recently. And by half broke I mean that one of my roomates squashed my backpack (with it inside) and now the bottom of it split open a little, and I have to press down hard and hold it to use it.

    Anyway, I am not quite sure how to help you. Maybe you can try troubleshooting on the Texas Instruments website, also, you said it's not the batteries, but did you maybe drop it recently or something? I'm not quite sure what else to tell you. :( Sorry, good luck.

    I prefer the TI-84 better. Much more comfortable, and I splurged for the Silver Edition.

    Regardless, have you tried the reset button on the back?

    I just hit the reset button on the back, and it worked. I lost some stuff, though, but I'll be able to get it all back from a friend.

    Thanks for the help, guys.
