Does not turn on at all.

I have a Texas Instruments TI-81. It was in a cardboard box among other junk for some years. It has not been dropped, water-damaged or anything in all that time. I found it while my family was moving with no batteries in it except the watch battery. I got it some new batteries, but it won't turn on. In my robotics class at my new high school, I was able to remove the back cover and I discovered tat the cover was glued on using some sort of black gunk that I carefully cleaned out. Also, the components had been taped in place, even though there was no evidence that anyone had opened the back cover besides me. What now?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

The battery contacts could have a coating of something on them, clean it off by sanding clean the battery contacts. The contacts in the unit not the batteries.
