Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator
I am a HS teacher and one of my students has a TI-83 plus which does the following:
When you turn it on, it lands on a screen that says "TI-83 Plus Silver Edition 1.14" and underneath "RAM cleared". Then the calculator turns itself off
She changed the regular batteries last night. It was fine two days ago, problem began yesterday. PLease advise. I saw the solution to use a paperclip to reset but I see no "little hole" on the back of the calulator. This thing keeps clearing RAM & turning itself off - it's driving me nuts!
These instructions are from education.ti.org, and worked for me.
1) Take out one of the AAA batteries
2) Hold down the CLEAR button
3) Put the AAA battery back in while still holding down the CLEAR button
4) Let go of the CLEAR button and turn the calculator ON
5) Press CLEAR to get rid of the error message.
Then you should be good! All the applications on my calculator were still intact, so despite the error message, the RAM was never actually cleared.
