Hello,
You can interrupt the program by removing one of the main batteries. Put battery back in calculator and turn it on. You may have to adjust contast with [2nd] and [UpArrow] keys or [2nd] and [DownArrow] keys, pressed in sequence and repeatedly until contrast is adjusted.

Reset all Ram.
If you remove apps one at time, and let garbage collector work after each deletion of apps, it may run faster and will not hang.

Hope it helps

Programming Issue : "Error : Variable or Flash application is locked, protected or archived"


Apparently the variable "a" is archived or locked. Press 2ND VAR-LINK (the subtract key). Find the line containing "a". If there's a little x-like thing to the left then its archived. Press F1 9 to unarchive it. If there's a little padlock to the left then its locked. Press F1 7 to unlock it.

Error memory when loading calculus made easy on ti-89 titanium


You may get Memory Error when you try to access an archived variables. From the other hand Memory Error message is displayed if there is not enough free RAM to access the archived variables. For correcting Memory Error message use the 2ND then MEM to check RAM free size and 2ND then VAR-LINK to determine the size of the archived variables that you want to access. As the third step for correcting this problem deleting unnecessary variable from RAM and archiving large variables or programs. By the definition, the RAM free size must be larger than the archived variables

My TI-84 calculator says "Garbage Collecting" and won't work, how should I reset it?


Found at www.epsstore.ti.com

What can be done if a TI-83 Plus family or TI-84 Plus family calculator displays Garbage Collecting... for more than 20 minutes?

The garbage collection allows the cleanup of unused archive memory. It deletes unarchived variables from the user data archive and it rearranges the remaining variables into consecutive blocks. When a variable is unarchived, the Archive free memory amount increases immediately, but the space is not actually available until after the next garbage collection.

If garbage collecting is more than 20 minutes, the calculator has possibly locked up and will need to be reset.

The reset procedure will delete all the items that are in the memory of the graphing calculator. Use the reset procedure below:
• Remove 1 AAA battery.
• Press and hold down the [DEL] key.
• While holding down the [DEL] key, replace the AAA battery, and press the [ON] Key.

The message Waiting... Please install calculator software should appear. At this point, it will be necessary to reinstall the calculator's operating system.
• Connect the calculator to the computer using the TI Connectivity Cable or DirectUSB Cable.

Please post if this was helpful...
• In Windows®, click on Start >> Programs >> TI Tools >> TI Connect >> TI OS Downloader.
• In MacOS® X, open Hard Drive >> Applications >> TI Connect >> TI OS Restore.
• Follow the directions on screen to reinstall the calculator's operating system.
Access the link following for detailed instructions on how to complete operating system installation.

Memory error TI-89


Before you do any deleting, go back and make sure the structure on the input equation is correct. If what's given you the problem is archived, clearing RAM won't help. You have to unarchive it before you can delete it, if archived. Memory error could be that you out did a limit, and running to large of a program. [2nd] [VarLink] should take you to an area like my main folder is at (pictured below). First put a check mark next to what you want unarchived using the [F4] key. Then select [F1] manage key and the [9] key. Use the F1 manage key to unarchive, unlock, and delete.

Now to delete, I use the F4 key to check mark the folder then [F1] and [1] key to delete. Remember FixYa to help you with your Ti 89.

How do you restore a TI-89 Titanium clac


Perhaps one of the following sources will be helpful:

To reset the TI-89 family, TI-92 family and Voyage 200 graphing calculators, press [2nd] [6] (reads MEM over the key). The [F1] menu appears and contains the following options:
  • All RAM - Clears all variables and programs from RAM only. This will not delete items from Archive or Apps.
  • Defaults - Does not clear any files from the calculator. Instead, this option resets the calculator settings to default, including the Mode, Graph Format, Table Setup, and other settings.
  • Vars - Clears all variables from Archive (Flash ROM). This option will NOT delete Apps or variables stored in RAM memory.
  • Apps - Clears all Apps from Archive. This will not delete any variables.
  • Both - Will clear all Apps and Variables from Archive. This will not delete any Variables from RAM.
  • All Memory - Clears everything from RAM and Archive, leaving only the Calculator OS and its components.
For example, I think you will want to follow the last step above... which would be to press [2nd] [6] [F1] [1] [1] [ENTER] [ENTER].




Also, if you are looking to clear all the RAM in another way I would take a look at the guidebook, which is downloadable from the following site in PDF format.

http://education.ti.com/downloads/guidebooks/graphing/89ti/TI89TitaniumGuidebook_Part2_EN.pdf

Take a look at page 951 and 952 for another way to clear the RAM

Ti85


kinda. The TI-85 programs differently, lacks a table feature, is not upgradable, has redefinable keys, has a larger screen, is smaller, energy efficient, TI-86 semi-compatible, and is older.
The TI-84+ has archive memory, flash-upgradable, FSTN (clearer) screen, 16*8 screen, USB On-The-Go compliant, almost a centimeter longer, assembly language support, and a tad bit faster.

TI-82: $89
TI-83 Plus: $79-99
Free TI-85: $0
TI-84 plus: $119.99
TI-84+SE: $129-139
TI-89 Titanium: $149

Err: bad address when unarchiving


Ti helper has a correct answer but you may want to try garbage collecting first. To do this press 2nd catalog and then g and then press enter when you find garbage collect. Then enter again and say yes. This should give you back the mem if not you need to reset the ram.

Garbage Collecting


graphing calulators work much like computers. The have RAM space so they can remember what you have done recently and stuff like that. So when it's garbage collecting it means it's trying to find more space. This generally means that you don't have much much ARC or RAM space left. You can see this under your memerory manager. (2nd + enter) then you can reset your calculaor(2nd plus 7 1 2) or you can go to memory manager and unarchive your programs. Fur an example you have TI 84. Most new TI 84 have sientific tools. so if you don't you it take away the archive (*) by pressing enter and then hit DEL. the more RAM space and ARC space should make it so it doens't garababe collect. Hope this works. i can help you more if this doesn't work. GOOD LUCK
