Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Silver Edition Graphic Calculator
I downloaded and installed the latest version of TI connect on my iMac. It's an Intel Mac. When I put the cable into the keyboard USB port it said "Device found but cannot communicate for some reason. So I put the cable into the rear USB port and it said "Problem connectong to Ti Connect X". Please help.
ON, Apps, scroll down until you see English, press enter. There might br several language choices there...Dutch, French, etc...
Even try: 2nd, mem, 7, 1, 2, enter to reset all RAM.

Did you turn on the calculator and go to the screen you get when you just turn it on?
When you download apps, you drag the app you want into the window you get when you click on the Device Explorer.
I hope this helps!

I'm not specifically familiar with the TI83 or TI84 but I've used a lot of TI calculators in my time, so I'll give it a try. If your trying to find the antilog of a number in base 10 enter the number and hit the (10 to the X) button. If you're trying to find the antilog of a number in in base e (natural log), enter the number and hit the (e to the X) button.

SOURCE: Many Problems with TI-84 Plus SE
I believe that you created your problems. You have TI connect, Use it. If you feel that you have the soul of a hacker then TILP is for you.
If you have a TI USB Silver link or a mini USB to Standard USB Direct cables you need TI Connect 1.6 not GraphLink (for Windows).
YOU MUST uninstall ALL TILP and TILP2 SOFTWARE, then install TI Connect 1.6
In what follows, I am including a copy of an earlier post of mine that may help you install the correct drivers
If you have a USB SilverLink cable, use it to connect the calculator though the I/O (round) port.
If you do not have a USB SilverLink cable, you can use the mini USB to USB Direct cable but you will have to install the correct driver for it.
I do not know what computer operating system you are running and I use Windows XP so I will describe the installation procedure for Windows XP SP3.
Install TI connect 1.6 for Windows; if your system is Vista you must install a patch available on the TI website, at the same page where you find TI Connect.
After you install TI Connect, connect you calculator to the computer with the mini USB standard USB Direct cable. Windows will detect the calculator and will try to install the drivers. You will have something that is similar to what is on the three screen captures I am inserting in the post. On the last screen, choose the TI Educational Handheld device and click next.
When Windows asks to stop installation, click continue anyway
After the installation, click finish.
Device manager will show you something like what is on next screen (TI Educational Handheld device)
Run TI Connect to verify that the calculator is recognized. Connect your computer to the Internet and click the Updates Button on the TI Connect tool bar.

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". If calculator did not turn on or, is still locked up goto Procedure 3, unless already did Procedure 3, then goto Procedure 4. If you calculator does come on and is responding and, your connect to another calculator goto Procedure 1. If you calculator does come on and is responding and, your connect to a computer goto Procedure 7.
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. Goto Procedure 2.
If the above process did not work. Try re-doing the Procedure 2, and, this time extend the time in Procedure 3, by 5 minutes to 10 minutes before you put all the batteries back in the calculator. These calculators can be a little stubborn at times so, keep trying Procedure 2.
If you can't find a calculator to connect too, you can connect your Ti 84 Plus to a computer that has Ti Connect software on it. If you need to connect your Ti 84 Plus to a computer make sure the Ti Connect software is operating properly. You do not want any hang-ups while installing the Ti 84 Plus OS.
Procedure 6. Procedure to installing the latest Ti84 Plus 2.55v. MP OS. TI OSDownloader does not always install the latest OS.
You can get the latest copy of Ti84 Plus 2.55v. MP OS and, guidebook by going to the Texas Instruments web site. You can get to that site instantly by clicking, "Ti 84 Plus 2.55v. MP OS!" Once your at the Ti site click the Download Item, "Ti84 Plus family operating system". Next you can login or, click "continue as guest". I'd would click the "continue as guest". Once you have click, "continue as guest" the Ti84 Plus family operating system will download to you.
Next, click "SAVE" and then a window to a folder will pop up. It is probably a window to a folder that you download too. If so, you may want to change it and, save to this folder, "My Documents \ My TI Data \ Downloads". You can also go back and, download the Ti 84 Plus guidebook too, if needed. If your calculator will not turn on or, is locked up goto Procedure 2. Or else goto Procedure 7.
Important Note: Never disconnect a TI Connectivity Cable during a transfer. Lost of power during installation of OS will destroy your calculator.
Link your computer and, Ti 84 Plus calculator with the USB cable or, Direct Black Link cable that came with the Ti 84 Plus calculator. Next, drag the Ti 84 Plus 2.55v MP OS that you saved earlier in "My Documents \ My TI Data \ Downloads" out of that folder and, drop it in the "Ti Connect" icon on the desktop. Click, "Continue" when the "Erase Warning" pops up and, the new Ti 84 Plus 2.55v MP OS will begin to install. Next, the Ti Device window should pop up and, highlight the port when it finds what your Ti 84 Plus is using, USB1 cable or, Direct Black COM1.
When the Ti Device Explorer finds and, highlights your calculator's information click, "Select." Then click, "Yes" when the next window shows up with your calculator's information and, the OS will continue to download. Upon completion the newest Ti 84 Plus 2.55v. MP OS will be installed.
If you run into any trouble with software or, drivers just comment to what failed at this posting and, I'll be glad to help you.
