Re: my ti89 titanium doesn't turn on

I had the same problem. I changed the batteries and it didn't work. I took out the batteries for about 30 minutes, and then put them back in, and it turned on.

Re: my ti89 titanium doesn't turn on

I had the same problem with Ti89. I installed new sets of four AAA Energizer batteries but Ti89 didn't turn on. I tried replacing the backup battery "303" which costs $4 BTW. But it didn't do anything and a waste of money. Finally I checked the AAA batteries one by one on my Multimeter and found that one of the AAA batteries had a reversed polarity for some weird reason. I guess in must have been made that way in Energizer factory or something. So I throw that one out and replaced it. NOW IT WORKS!
FYI: I checked to see if Ti89 would work without the backup battery and it totally works! So don't bother replacing those unless you have some data stored in memory you don't want to lose.

Replacing the batteries (including the back up batteries) will fix this problem.

Ti-89 titanium diagnostics

There is no DiagnosticsOn command in the TI 89 Titanium. The command exists on the TI83/84PLUS where it displays the r and r^2 coefficients. On the TI89 , the correlation coefficient and the determination coefficient (r, r^2) are displayed by default among the statistics if THE REGRESSION MODEL includes them. If they are not defined by the regression model they will not be displayed. In short, you do not have to turn diagnostics ON.

It's "frozen". won't change from the screen its

Try to reset it by taking out the batteries and leaving to sit for a minute or so, if that doesn't work take out the small battery as well and leave it sit, if you're still stuck you can call ti-cares (800-842-2737) they're generally very helpful.

How do you restore lost programs on TI 89

Click here to go to the Texas Instruments web site to download APPS. Stroll down to where it say's, "Technology", and left mouse click the select bar. Then stroll down to "Ti89, Ti89 titanium", and make another left mouse click. Now stroll down to "VIEW" and make another left mouse click. This will drop down a menu with all the available APPS categories. Select which category you want, and left mouse click again. Next, left mouse click, "FIND" and it will take you to all the APPS in that category. Choose the APP you want to download, and left mouse click again. This will take you to that APP's download site, and stroll down a little to "Download Item". Left mouse click the APP you want, and another screen will pop up and ask you to log in. Go ahead and click, "continue as a guest", and the APP will be downloaded to your screen. Go ahead and left mouse click "SAVE", to save it on your computer. That way you can get it later, and download it with TI connect to your calculator.
If you ever want to get to the Ti89 web site in the future just google search Ti89, and the go to one of the Ti89 education sites. All you have to do once your at the site is left mouse click, "Downloads and Activities", and the same, "Technology" bar will show up. Just repeat the process I gave you earlier, and you should have no trouble.
