Hello,
Try the other recipes from the TI knowledge base concerning a calculator failing to turn on

For the TI-Nspire™ Family:

  1. Remove thekeypad (for TI-Nspire) or the battery door (for TI-Nspire CAS) andremove at least 1 battery from each column of batteries. After 2-5seconds, reinsert the batteries and turn the unit on. This will causethe unit to reboot the operating system.
  2. Remove the keypad(for TI-Nspire) or the battery door (for TI-Nspire CAS) and remove atleast 1 battery from each column of batteries. After 2-5 seconds,reinsert the batteries and LEAVE THE UNIT OFF (do not turn on and thenback off). Hold down [Home] [Enter] [P], and while holdingthese keys, press [On]. The device will boot up as in the previousreset, but will display a menu with the following options. Please tryoptions 1, 2, 3, and 4 in that order. ** The [Home] key is located atthe top right of the TI-Nspire keypad and has a picture of a house onit.
Note:TI-Nspire family model options 2 and 4 above require that the OS be installed. The reset menu will only display if the unit is off and batteries have been removed/replaced as described above.

1. Cancel - The most non-intrusive reset option; no changes are made, the unit restarts.
2. Delete Operating System – The operating system will be deleted without deleting any documents.
3. Delete Document Folder Contents – This will delete the user’s documents, but will not delete the OS.
4. Complete Format – This will delete the OS and all documents for a total erase of memory.

Hope it helps you solve the problem.

SOURCE: I have the TI-Nspire CAS

Yes, you guessed right. Your configuration is set to Fix 0 AND scientific.
You can reset the calculator or you can change configuration (should be better to do the latter.)

I am describing the procedure for the CAS with OS version 2.1 But it should work for your calculator.
Turn calculator ON
Press The HOME (House iscon) button.
Press digit key 5 to open Settings and status.
In menu options, select [2:Settings]
Use the arrow (right) to open the submenu options and select [1:General]
The cursor should be on drop down box labeled Display Digits (You might see FIX 0, meaning 0 decimal digits, or 0 digits in mantissa of the number)
Use down arrow to open the number display format, and select Float 6 (an appropriate choice most of the time. If you want more digits, set Float 12)
Press [ENTER] or Click to validate your selection.
The drop down box will close.

Use the TAB button to move to another Configuration setting. Pressing the TAB twice will take you to Exponential format.
Use down arrow to unfold the Exponential format menu.
If you do not need Scientific Format, use Normal and validate.
Press TAB several times until cursor reaches OK.
At this point Press ENTER to save Configuration.
This should solve the problem.

As I said, this describes the procedure for OS version 2.1. Once you find out how to enter the setting screen, do as I described above, and do not forget to validate by getting the cursor on OK and validate.

Good luck.

Hi, I have a problem with ti-nspire cx cas, it doesn't charge via a usb cable.


Are you really talking about a TINspire CX or a TI NSpire. The TINspire CX (CAS or Not) comes with a rechargeable battery and an adapter/Charger. You plug the charger in an electric outlet and let it party charge. If the calculator battery fails to recharge then it must be defective. Any third party mini USB charger will recharge the battery.

The TINspire with touchpad (CAS or not) can use regular batteries or the optional rechargeable battery.
It is not necessary to connect the calculator to a computer to have it recharged.

As far as the calculator being recognized by the computer, you must install the communication software (TI computer Link Software for the older TINspire) or the TI Nspire teacher or student software for the CX. When you run the TINspire teacher or student software and then connect the calculator, you will have the opportunity to select it.

Error 1308. Source file not found: E:\PC\TI-NSP~2\Program Files\TI Education\TI-Nspire\locale.properties. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.


Maybe the file is missing, or there is a defect on the disk. I suggest you go the education.ti.com website and download the trial software from there. Install it on your computer and validate it with the license that came with your calculator.

How do you put the batteries in?


  1. Remove the keypad (for TI-Nspire) or the battery door (for TI-Nspire CAS) and remove at least 1 battery from each column of batteries. After 2-5 seconds, reinsert the batteries and turn the unit on. This will cause the unit to reboot the operating system.
  2. Remove the keypad (for TI-Nspire Family or TI-Nspire CAS Touchpad) or the battery door (for TI-Nspire CAS) and remove at least 1 battery from each column of batteries. After 2-5 seconds, reinsert the batteries and LEAVE THE UNIT OFF (do not turn on and then back off). If the TI-Nspire/TI-Nspire CAS is a Clickpad, hold down [Home] [Enter] [P], and while holding these keys, press [On]. If the TI-Nspire/TI-Nspire CAS is a Touchpad, instead hold down [Doc] [Enter] [EE], and while holding these keys, press [On]. The device will boot up as in the previous reset, but will display a menu with the following options. Please try options 1, 2, 3, and 4 in that order. ** The [Home] key is located at the top right of the TI-Nspire keypad and has a picture of a house on it.

I am using Window XP. How to download software that includes a driver to my computer to use my TI-nspire CX ?


In the clamshell or the box the calculator came in, there is a CD. Use it to install the drivers and the TI Nspire Computer Link software. If it came with the TINspire CX student software you can install that too.

After that you can hook the calculator to the computer and run the TI Nspire Computer Link software or the Student/Teacher Software and it it will probe the USB port and find your calculator.

My TI Nspie CAS calculator is restarting frequently


Hello,
If you remove battery door, the TINspire CAS cannot be turned ON.
You may try to reset the unit by pressing the reset button on the back of the unit. If that does not solve the problem, you may try to reinstall or update the OS.

Anyway, here is what the Texas Instruments Knowledge Base has to say about reinstalling the OS. Hope it helps.

What steps are required to reinstall the TI-Nspire family operating system?

To reload the device’s OS using a computer with TI-Nspire Computer Link:
• Connect the TI-Nspire device (with the Nspire keypad) to the computer using the USB Standard A to Mini B cable.
• Open the TI-Nspire Computer Link software. The select device dialog should appear, and detect the device.
• Either drag the OS file (available in the ‘downloads’ area at education.ti.com) onto the TI-Nspire File Browser portion of the window, or click Tools -> Install OS.
To reload the device’s OS using another TI-Nspire or TI-Nspire CAS device:
• Connect the two devices using the USB Mini A to Mini B cable. The end marked A should be inserted into the sending unit, while the end marked B should be inserted into the receiving unit.
• On the sending unit, access the document chooser by pressing [Home] [7]. Once in the document chooser, press [Menu] and choose 9:Send OS…
NOTE: Users can only send an OS to a unit of the same model. Users cannot send an OS from a TI-Nspire to a TI-Nspire CAS.
Please see the TI-Nspire guidebooks for additional information.
