    Still not working, I think it's broken... and its not actually frozen i just realised, it just goes really slow, so i have to hold down a button for a few seconds for it to work, and so on... very frustrating.

  • davey36 Nov 08, 2008

    RAM FREE is 24275

    ARC FREE is 35474



    Hopefully that helps (you help me...)



    Thanks

What troubleshooting steps can I try if my TI-83 Plus family or TI-84 Plus family graphing calculator displays RAM cleared?

If a TI-83 Plus family or TI-84 Plus family graphing calculator consistently displays the RAM cleared message, the following steps will help in troubleshooting the problem. • Try a new set of batteries (including the backup battery).
After replacing the batteries, adjust the contrast by pressing and releasing the [2nd] key followed by pressing and releasing the [up arrow]; repeat as necessary. To adjust or lighten the display, press [2nd] [down arrow].
• Remove one of the AAA batteries. With one of the batteries removed, press and hold the [CLEAR] key. While holding [CLEAR], reinsert the AAA battery and then turn the calculator on. The calculator should display the message "RAM Cleared". Release the [CLEAR] key and then press it one more time to remove the message.
• Remove all of the batteries including the round lithium battery for 5 minutes. After the 5 minute period, reinsert all of the batteries and turn the calculator on. Adjust the contrast if necessary.
• Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold the [DEL] key. While holding [DEL], reinsert the AAA battery and then turn the calculator on. The calculator should display "Waiting...Please install calculator software now". From here, follow the instructions listed for Correcting the Error Message Waiting...Please Install Calculator Software Now on the TI-83 Plus Family or TI-84 Plus Family Calculator.
If the suggestions listed above do not alleviate the problem, please contact TI-Cares for information regarding service.

This is kinda a weird situation. Because it's usually the other way around. Your ram will clear if your calculator is frozen. So take out all 5 batteries from the back. Even the back up battery. Then reset it again. 2nd then + then 7 then 1 Then 2. Good luck.

    okay try this go and hit 2nd then + and go to the second one MEM mgmt/del. And see how much ram you have free. And how much ARC you have free. If that RAM number is small then that could be the whole problem and i can walk you through how to delete some unimportant things.

    yea i'm sorry that is enough to run everything.... i'm sorry. I don't know what to tell you

My TI-84 Plus calculator won't work. It won't switch off by itself. When the batteries are reinserted, it says that all RAM has been cleared. When i press the 'ON' button again, the screen clears. but...


The Ram cleared message is normal after you change batteries. When you see this message you press the CLEAR button to erase it. You do not press the ON button again because the calculator is already ON. If you want to turn calculator OFF you press [2nd][ON] (OFF).

On certain calculators, pressing the ON button when calculator is already ON is interpreted as INTERRUPT the current command.

RAM CLEARED?


Hello,
The most likely reason is that the backup battery is drained. Change the backup battery. When you get the Ram Cleared message, just press [CLEAR] to erase the message and start using the calculator.
Hope it helps.

When turned on, my TI-84 Plus says that the RAM is cleared. I pressed on again but you can't do anything after that.


Hello,
If it is always saying RAM Cleared when you turn it on, it may be due to a depleted backup battery. Once you change it, you will not get the message again.
Anyway, you are not supposed to press ON again when calculator is turned on. Just press [CLEAR] to erase the message and have access tho the main calculator screen.
Good luck.

TI-84 Calc is FROZEN


I'd try hooking it to the computer using ti connect explorer and see if deleting the programs there would help. I had a calculator that did the same thing and never did fix it. But if your memory can be delete and reinstalled it might work.
