Re: Unarchive a list

Go to second mem and hit no. 6, which is unarchive, then on your normal display screen it will appear as UnArchive...go to your second list and select L1 and hit enter...that should do it...good luck.

On my TI-84 Plus: Once I go to STAT Edit it asks me to name the tables, and when I try to put in L1, it gives me a message saying ERR: ARCHIVED. What do I do??

You already have a list L1 archived in memory.

You have two choices. You can either choose another name or you can unarchive the existing L1. To unarchive a list, press 2ND [MEM] 2 4 then use the arrow keys to move the highlight to the line containing L1 (there should be an asterisk "*" in front of the name). Press ENTER and the asterisk should disappear. Press 2ND [QUIT] to return to the home screen.

On my TI-83+ when trying to unarchive a app I get ERR: VARIABLE. I have deleted the app but when I put it back on my calculator it was archived again and I got the same message.

Applications on the TI-83+ cannot be unarchived. Flash applications on the TI calculators need to stay archived until they are run; it is the way the calculator functions. The application should run fine the way it is. Programs, on the other hand, can only be run while unarchived and in the memory. Are you sure you don't mean to unarchive a program instead of a flash application?

How do I unarchive a A+Alg2 application on my ti-84 Plus Silver Edition?

Press 2ND [MEM] 2 to bring up the memory management menu (MEM is on the + key). Select either All or APPS. Scroll down to the item to be unarchived. Press ENTER and the asterisk indicating that it is archived will turn off. If it is already unarchived, pressing ENTER will turn on the asterisk, indicating that is now archived.

My daugter has a ti 83 plus. Her apps have been archived. How do you unarchive?

Press 2ND MEM 2 to get into the memory management menu. Press 1 to select ALL. Use up/down to scroll to the item in question, then press ENTER to toggle the archive state.

If they're flash apps then you can't unarchive them, they run fine from the archive.

You can archive/unarchive objects by using the Memory Management editor.

Press "2ND" "MEM" "2" to bring up the Memory Management editor. Press "1" to select "All". Navigate to each item and toggle its status by pressing "ENTER". Archived items will show with an asterisk (*) before the name.

When one of my students went to stat plot, they got an error archive message

Press [2nd][MEM][2: Mem Mgmt/Del][1:All] and scroll down to see if a system variable or other entity that is needed for graphing may have been archived. A variable that is archived has an asterisk next to it on the left.
To unarchive it press ENTER when the arrow reaches it.
You may be able to draw your graphs. It you are unable, I suggest you reset the Ram: Press [2nd][MEM][7:Reset][1:All Ram][2:Reset] [ENTER]. Press [CLEAR] to erase the message and restart the statistics.

Hope it helps.

I can't open any progrmas on my TI-84Plus , it only gives : Error and 1:QUIT can you experts help me?THNX

You should give the whole error message.
I created a bogus program and archived it.
Then I tried to execute it. I got the messages: ERR Archived 1:Quit 2:Goto. When I tried to edit it I got ERR:Archived 1:Quit.

Your program is archived. You must unarchive it.

To Unarchive. Press [2nd] [MEM][2:Mem Mgmt/Del] [ENTER]
Scroll down to [7:Pgrm]. Archived programs will have a star at the left. Highlight the program you want to unarchive and press [ENTER]. The asterisk disappears. Press [2nd][QUIT]. Your program is ready to run or to be edited.

Hope it helps.

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.

List L1 has a * in front and won't come up in the STATS

Press, 2nd, mem, 7, 1, 2.
Press, 2nd, mem, 7, 2, 2.

This should fix it. It will clear & reset everything.

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.
