SOURCE: cannot connect ti 89 to computer

Check to make sure TI-Connect is looking on the right port, whether USB or serial. If you have a serial cable, you might consider using Ti's Graph-Link software to connect. I have had trouble getting it to work right with TI-Connect. You can find Graph-Link on TI's Education site under Downloads > Connectivity Software. I personally prefer the free program TiLP, which runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux and supports whatever cable you want. Hope this helps!

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.

SOURCE: Ti connect doesn't find it.

If you use the TI USB Silver Link cable there should not be any problem. In case of problems, download the latest TI connect software and install it anew.
But if you use the mini UsB to Standard USB Direct cable you will have to install manually the correct drivers.

Here is a copy of a post I wrote to answrer that question.

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.

SOURCE: my student's ti nspire won't

Hello,

Put in new batteries and try again.

If new batteries did not solve the problem, the next thing to check would be the battery terminal.

If the battery terminal is rusty, the battery power won't contact and the calculator won't turn on. So, use a flat small screw drive to scratch the battery terminal so that there would be contact.

If the above is not the problem, the next to check would be the wire connecting the battery terminal to the the calculator's main board. There is a wire between the battery terminal and the calculator board. When the battery is inserted, the power from the battery goes from the terminal to the board through this wire. There is a possibility that this wire is cut in-between or is loosing contact. In this case, you need to get a small screw driver and carefully disassemble the calculator in order to check the wire.

If the wire is intact, use a light brush to brush the calculator board as there might be dust on the board.

If non of the above helps, then it means the calculator is dead and needs a replacement.

Regards.

The calculator writes 8 all over


During operation of the TI-Nspire handheld it may be necessary to reset the device. Circumstances which may require a reset include; keys not responding, device will not turn on or a garbled display. To reset the device:
• Remove the keypad (for TI-Nspire with ClickPad, TI-Nspire with TouchPad, and TI-Nspire CAS with Touchpad) or the battery door (for TI-Nspire CAS with ClickPad) and remove at least one battery from each column of batteries. After 2-5 seconds, reinsert the batteries but do not turn the handheld on.
For the TI-Nspire and TI-Nspire CAS handheld units with ClickPad:
• Hold down [home] [enter] [P].
• While holding these keys press [on].
For the TI-Nspire and TI-Nspire CAS handheld units with TouchPad and the TI-Nspire CX and TI-Nspire CX CAS:
• Hold down [doc] [enter] [EE].
• While holding these keys press [on].
Please Note: For TI-Nspire Family handheld units that contain rechargeable batteries you can alternatively hold the above keys while pressing the [reset] button on the back of the handheld rather than removing the battery for 2-5 seconds.
• The device will boot up as in the previous reset, but will display a menu with the following options. Please try options 2, 3, and 4 in that order.
• 1: Cancel - The most non-intrusive reset option; no changes are made, the unit restarts.
• 2: Delete Operating System - The operating system will be deleted without deleting any documents on the system.
• 3: Delete Document Folder Contents - This will delete the user's documents, but will not delete the OS. Selecting this option is the same as using the RESET hole on the back of the unit.
• 4: Complete Format - This will delete the OS and all documents for a total wipe of the handheld.
Please note that the second and fourth option will require that the OS will need to be reinstalled

Hi, I have a problem with ti-nspire cx cas, it doesn't charge via a usb cable.


Are you really talking about a TINspire CX or a TI NSpire. The TINspire CX (CAS or Not) comes with a rechargeable battery and an adapter/Charger. You plug the charger in an electric outlet and let it party charge. If the calculator battery fails to recharge then it must be defective. Any third party mini USB charger will recharge the battery.

The TINspire with touchpad (CAS or not) can use regular batteries or the optional rechargeable battery.
It is not necessary to connect the calculator to a computer to have it recharged.

As far as the calculator being recognized by the computer, you must install the communication software (TI computer Link Software for the older TINspire) or the TI Nspire teacher or student software for the CX. When you run the TINspire teacher or student software and then connect the calculator, you will have the opportunity to select it.

Error 1308. Source file not found: E:\PC\TI-NSP~2\Program Files\TI Education\TI-Nspire\locale.properties. Verify that the file exists and that you can access it.


Maybe the file is missing, or there is a defect on the disk. I suggest you go the education.ti.com website and download the trial software from there. Install it on your computer and validate it with the license that came with your calculator.

I am using Window XP. How to download software that includes a driver to my computer to use my TI-nspire CX ?


In the clamshell or the box the calculator came in, there is a CD. Use it to install the drivers and the TI Nspire Computer Link software. If it came with the TINspire CX student software you can install that too.

After that you can hook the calculator to the computer and run the TI Nspire Computer Link software or the Student/Teacher Software and it it will probe the USB port and find your calculator.

I cannot figure out how to set the calculator to "degree" mode in order to use sin, cos, and tan. Help please!


In Scratchpad, how do I change the default angle settings from radians to degrees?

By default, your handheld's angle settings are in radian mode. If you want the default angle setting to be changed to degrees, please follow these steps:
  • Using a TI-Nspire Family Handheld with Touchpad, press [doc]. Using a TI-Nspire Family Handheld with Clickpad, press [ctrl] [home] while in an open Document or in Scratchpad. Both procedures will take you to the next screen, and the procedures can also be used on any TI-Nspire Family of Desktop Software.
  • Press the [7] key to select the option for 7: Settings and Status c27070ss1.jpg
  • Press the [2] key to choose the option 2: Settings c27070ss2.jpg
  • Press the [1] key to choose 1: General or press the [2] key for 2: Graphs and Geometry, depending upon which default angle settings you are looking to change. c27070ss3.jpg
  • Press [tab] key once to select Angle, next press the [down] on the touchpad or clickpad and select Degree from the list and press [Enter]
  • Press [tab] key until you get to the option "Make Default" c27070ss4.jpg
  • Press [enter] on "Make Default". When the handheld asks if you want to save the new settings as default for new documents and Scratchpad, press [enter] to accept the changes. c27070ss5.jpg
Choosing "Make Default" will save the settings as your default settings for both scratchpad, and any new documents you create after that point.
