Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Calculator

3 Answers

Linking Problem The problem is rather straightforward: if a link cable is connected to my computer for file transfer, my calculator freezes. If I attempt to do a file exchange with another calculator, it freezes. My RAM is oocasionally reset by this, too. I have been unable to find a solution to my problem thus far and would be glad to have some help.

Re: Linking Problem

I found out after this problem happened to me a few hours ago, that it turned out the cable that comes with the ti 84 doesn't set properly in the usb port for the mac and i kinda had to push up on it from the bottom of the fingergrip and help slide it to touch the metal in the port and held it there until i finished uploading my programs.

Re: Linking Problem

Does TI-84 Plus is convenient for Survey of Calculus and Finite? Unless, which calculator should I have?

Re: Linking Problem

Does the cable you are using have a short in it? I would also check the port on the calc itself.

Cant transfer files to ti voyage200

The error message is important. It tells the would-be helper where to start.
Anyways, did you try to check if the file(s) you are trying to transfer have a size smaller than the RAM left?.
Did you make sure that the Computer (TI connect) fully recognizes the calculator?.
I use Windows 7 (64 bits) and TI connect works perfectly.

How to download the Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator

1.Get linking software for your computer, such as TiLP, or TI Graph-Link, and follow the installation instructions to install it.

2.Plug your cable into the computer (where depends on what cable you have)(somtimes your computer does not have the right kind of entrance) and the other end into the calculator.

3.Start the linking program that you just installed. If it detects the calculator, everything is working fine, and proceed.

4.Download calculator software from the internet. You can find many programs at

5.Make sure downloaded program is unzipped and located in a normal windows folder

6.Select the program you downloaded in your linking program (how you do this varies between programs) and send it to the calculator. For Windows this can involve finding the unzipped program in windows explorer and right clicking it (from a normal--nonzipped--folder window) and selecting "send to TI device"

7.Use the program on your calculator.

TIPS: If you have a USB cable, you will need either TiLP or TI Connect, no other software supports it

Things you'll need:

-A Texas Instruments graphing calculator

-A link cable for the calculator

-An internet connection

Urgenttttt --- when i used notefolio on my computer to transfer notes to my calculator TI-89... i could not find transferred notes on my calculator!! where can find it?? or do i have to download...

You need to install notefolio to your TI-89.

You can download the program from:

After you download the program file, you can use TI-Connect to transfer the program file to your calculator (after you connect the calculator to the computer with the USB cable). To transfer the files, simply drag and drop the program file onto the TI-Connect icon on your computer.

TI-89 i am very frustrated... i used graph link to transfer notes to my calcaultor but it said send failed. why? its really urgent i need notes to be transferred to my calculator. thanks!

My first answer is obvious: you can type them in the Editor.
Why did the transfer fail?
  1. File type incompatible with the OS.
  2. Not enough memory left to hold the file.
  3. Transmission error due weak batteries.
  4. Transmission error because the graph link end of the cable that goes into the IO port of the calculator is not fully inserted.
  5. Baud rate of your computer Serial port may be too high. Set it at 9600 bauds or less.
These are all the reasons I can think of. You may try to upadte the TI Connectivity software to the latest 1.6 version, if is not already 1.6

Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Linking Problem

Make sure the cable is the right kind. just because it fits doesn't mean it will work: a gameboy charger fits in the graph link spot (don't ask how I know this), but it will kill your calculator (or at least batteries, once again, don't ask).

TI-84 PSE: Stuck on waiting... please install operating system now screen

The best way to solve this problem is to get a 2nd TI-84 to link into with the linking USB cable. Then turn on working calc press the 2nd button then link button (or the XTON) variable button. Scroll up to option G: SEND OS "DO NOT HIT ENTER YET" and then remove and replace one battery from the non-working unit. NEXT press enter on working unit to SEND OS.

Unable to connect calculator to computer.

Try opening the software on your PC. Set the connection to USB and connect your calc. On the calc press the right shift key followed by the right arrow should now recognize the calc.
