Question about Texas Instruments TI-Nspire Graphic Calculator

Open Question

Ti-nspire keypad has a bad connection with the rest of the device.

It seems that the electric contacts on the keypad do not make a good connection with the rest of the device. Batteries have been replaced, and the device has been reset, but the calculator only recognizes the keypad when constant pressure is applied.

SOURCE: TI 84 won't turn on. New batteries installed

Sorry, answer was posted as a clarification request.

Hello,
Here it is from the horse's mouth (TI Knowledge base)

For the TI-83 Plus Family, TI-84 Plus Family:


Caution: The resets described in these troubleshooting steps will cause a lossof applications, programs and data. If at all possible please create a backup using TI Connect™ first.

  1. Try a new set of AAA batteries.
  2. Adjustthe contrast by pressing and releasing the [2nd] key followed bypressing and releasing the up arrow; repeat as necessary. To adjust orlighten the display, use the down arrow.
  3. Remove one of theAAA batteries. Press and hold the [CLEAR] key. While holding [CLEAR],reinsert the AAA battery and then turn the calculator on. Thecalculator should display the message "RAM Cleared". Release the [CLEAR] key and then press it one more time to remove the message.
  4. Removeone of the AAA batteries. Press and hold the [DEL] key. While holding[DEL], reinsert the AAA battery and then turn the calculator on. Thecalculator should display "Waiting...Please install calculator software now". Follow the instructions for the TI-83 family or TI-84 Plus family to reinstall the calculator operating system (see below.)
  5. Removeall of the batteries including the round lithium battery for 5 minutes.After the 5 minute period, reinsert all of the batteries and turn thecalculator on. Adjust the contrast if necessary.

Reinstalling the OS fot the TI84Plus

How do I correct the Error Waiting...Please Install Calculator SoftwareNow message on my TI-83 Plus family or TI-84 Plus family calculator?

If an operating system (OS) update fails or is interrupted, the calculator will be in an inoperable state with the message Waiting...Please install calculator software now.The most common cause of a transfer being interrupted is updating theoperating system on a calculator with low batteries. Users will need touse the TI Connectivity cable and the TI Connect software to send theoperating system to the calculator. Make sure to have the latestversion of TI Connect installed on the computer.
In order to install the software please follow these steps:
1. Connect the TI Connectivity cable between the computer and the calculator.
2. Click on Start >> Programs >> TI Tools >> TI Connect >> TI OSDownloader
3. Follow the on-screen directions to reinstall the calculator's OS.
Ifthe message "Error! Press any key to turn unit off. Then turn unit backon." appears on the graphing calculator, quickly, remove one batteryfrom the calculator and reinstall it while the transfer is taking place.

Hope it helps.

SOURCE: I downgraded my TI-Nspire's OS

I had this same problem myself and I had to look everywhere to find a solution. You will have to remove the current OS from your device. Heres how.

http://epsstore.ti.com/OA_HTML/csksxvm.jsp?nSetId=101985&nUsePub=NO&jttst0=6_23871,23871,-1,0,&jtfm0=&etfm1=&jfn=ZGC81E19298A9321E38D51491551F331C8CCDA6801E50CC672F84B3EFDF0F6ACEF9DD42026E6C2FF1F9579670CF87CEAF79D

I couldnt use option 2 for some reason and had to use option 4 (complete format, luckily I had backed the files up earlier) but once it was reformatted the device showed up in the software and told me to update the OS. From here you just install the latest OS as you would normally.
The problem with what you and I did is that previous OS versions (1.7 in my case) dont support the keypad, you may be able to use the older version with a different keypad but I'm not sure.
Anyway, I hope you can fix it, good luck.

Ti-nspire with 84 keypad problems


It seems to me that you get the loading bar when you switch keypads. I just switched keypads, and when I reinserted the TI84 Plus keypad back again I found my last TI84 Plus screen contents still displayed.
As to the RAM cleared message, it probably is related to the batteries being depleted.
To verify battery charge level, you may use TI connect.

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.

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.

4. Complete Format – This will delete the OS and all documents for a total erase of memory.
