I was linked with my computer, trying to receive a large program when I
ran out of memory (in the calculator). I checked RAM and there were a lot
of variables and strings and such that I wanted to get rid of to make
room.

At some point the calculator asked me if I wanted to reset, and I said
yes (which I've never done before).

Now, I get no reponse when I try to turn on the calculator. I tried
removing the batteries (inlcuding the little disk shaped one) for about 10
minutes but after replacing them it still won't turn on.

What do I do now?

Thanks for any help.

When you reset the memory on a TI-85 you also reset the contrast. Reset
the contrast by using the 2nd Up and Down arrows respectively to
increase and decrease the contrast.

Hope this helps
