Dead Battery?


Take out the batteries. Also take out the backup battery. It is a button battery beneath the screw in the battery compartment. Check the button battery volts with a multi-meter. After 5 minutes put the button battery back in and then the fresh batteries. It might work now. Alternatively take out a battery, then hold the clear button and put the battery back in. Then try to turn on. If it still does not work take out a battery press the del button and put the battery back in.

My TI-84 has been used for one year already. I thought it was dead but when I inserted new batteries it started working again. I was lucky to have it work for just over a day and it died less than a day...


This could have been caused by damage from the previous owner but, most electronics have a certain life-span that no amout of batteries can help.
I too had a TI-84 silver edition, and one day it no longer worked. I don't believe there is any solution to this problem. My advice is to simply get another one new.

I have a TI84 plus texas instruments i have removed both the batteries in order to reset the unit but it still has not resetted the unit. All I am getting all zeros on the screen


First try removing all four AAA batteries and the small lithium backup battery (above the four AAA batteries). Leave all batteries out for five minutes, then replace them and try to start the calculator. If this doesn't work...

Replace all but 1 AAA battery. Press and hold the "CLEAR" button on the calculator. While holding the "CLEAR" button down, replace the missing AAA battery. While still holding the "CLEAR" button, turn the calculator on. The display should read "RAM Cleared". Release the "CLEAR" button and press again to remove the message.

If that doesn't work, remove 1 AAA battery again. Repeat the preceding instructions with the "DEL" key: With the battery removed, press and hold the "DEL" key. With the "DEL" key held down, replace the battery and turn the calculator on. The screen should say "Waiting... Please install calculator software now." Release the "DEL" key. Download this program onto your computer (from Texas Instruments). Connect the calculator to the computer using the USB cable provided with purchase. Run the TI OSDownloader program and follow the on-screen instructions to re-install the calculator's operating system.

How to use sentry ca 656 calculator for exponential forms in positive and negative ? when i am trying to do 2 to the power of 3 , it is giving me answer as 2000.for this i pushed 2 button than EXP than 3 ....


The EXP key is what's marked EE on most calculators and adds a decimal exponent. 2 EXP 3 means 2*10^3 which is 2000 as you've discovered.

You need to use the x^y key (just above DEL) instead.

My screen is blue when ever i change my batteries, So I Press the 2nd button and make it lighter. But the pixels dont lighten all the way And when i go to some type of menu like for Zoom, there are...


Try to reset everything to see if that helps. If it doesn't , you can try to upgrade your operating system on the calculator to see if that helps to make it go away.
If that doesn't help try this:
"Remove one of the AAA batteries. 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."
Let me know how it goes.

TI-83 Plus Problem


Batteries:
Make sure to replace the "battery backup" too the little lithium ion battery

Try Adjusting contrast:
Hold down "[2nd]" key press up or down arrow repeatedly to lighten or darken contrast.

First attempt reseting:
Step 1: Remove all the batteries
Step 2: Hold "Clear" key down
Step 3: Still holding "Clear" key reinstall batteries
Step 4: Still holding "Clear" key press "On" key until home screen is displayed.

Second shot reseting:
remove all batteries including lithium ion (backup battery), wait 3 hours and reinstall batteries.

Third Shot reseting:
Step 1: Remove a battery
Step 2: Hold down "DEL" key reinstall battery
Step 3: Possible msg pops up saying "Waiting ... Please install software" IGNORE msg and take out battery again
Step 4: Reinstall battery do not hold down "DEL" key

reseting will cause the handheld to loose all of its stored memory.

Hope that helps!

TI-84 plus DEAD


There is a chance there is a battery leakage and the contact is spoilt. That's what I'm facing now as well
