Brand new right outta the box and i've put batteries in them and neither one will turn on. so i ask is there some sort of trick or am i doing something wrong? i cant see this being a complex problem.


  • No, there is no shipping tabs to pull or anything like that. Just put 3 AAA batteries in and turn on. The only thing on your end is maybe you are using old batteries. Batteries on the shelf can go bad. Especially for those of us that keep some stored for emergencies. If you have tried installing a fresh set of 3 AAA ALKALINE (you might try a different set than the first ones) batteries in your radios and still get no response then you will have to return them. I am suggesting new ALKALINE batteries because it is odd that both radios malfunction right out of the box.

  • No batteries are supplied with this radio but a NiMH upgrade was offered separately at a cost. Should you be using this make sure a real good charge is on that battery first.


  • If you have any comments please feel free to leave them here.
  • Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa.

My ti 83 will turn on when i press the clear thing but when i try to put something in nothing happens


Hi imagenius1,

You need to free up some memory. Try clearing your RAM memory. Your calculator should operate properly afterward.

Press [2nd] [MEM] [7] [1] [2]

If the steps above did not reset the memory to your Ti 83 family calculator try the procedures below.

Please be prepared to re-install the calculator's OS if you run through this process.

If you have a straight Ti 83 without the Plus or, Silver Edition label goto (Procedure 2) below. If your Ti calculator is a Ti 83 Plus or better goto (Procedure 1).


(Procedure 1).

  1. Try a new set of AAA batteries.

  2. 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 [CLEAR] one more time to remove the message.

  1. Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold the [DEL] key. While holding [DEL], reinsert the AAA battery and then turn the calculator on. The calculator 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.



  2. Steps to re-installing the operating system:
    ~Connect the TI Connectivity cable between the PC and the calculator.
    ~Click on Start >> Programs >> TI Tools >> TI Connect >> TI OSDownloader
    ~Follow the on-screen directions to reinstall the calculator's OS. If you could not install the new OS on your calculator goto step 4.


  3. Remove all of the batteries including the round lithium battery for 5 minutes. After the 5 minute period, reinsert all of the batteries and turn the calculator on. Adjust the contrast if necessary.

  4. If the above process did not reset your calculator. Try re-doing (Procedure 1) and, extend the time in step 4, by 5 minutes to 10 minutes before you put all the batteries back in the calculator.

(Procedure 2).


For a straight Ti 83 without the Plus or, Silver Edition label try the procedure below.


  1. Try a new set of AAA batteries.



  2. Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold the [ON] key for 20 seconds. Reinsert the AAA battery and then turn the calculator on.

I put new lithium triple aaa batteries in my TI-83. Nothing happened . days later it turned on worked for a little while then stopped. would it help to change the round lithium battery? Do you know what...


The button cell backup battery keeps the memory electrically refreshed when the calculator is turned OFF. The necessary power for regular use is supplied by the 4 AAA batteries (main power). That nothing happened when you put in a fresh set of (expensive) lithium batteries may be due to the screen being too dim to see anything.

If the calculator displays RAM CLEARED each time it is turned on, it may be due to a depleted backup battery. The battery model number is CR1616 or CR1620. On my TI84PLUS the backup battery is of type 303 (Sony) or SR44SW (Maxell).

Battery area


The batteries (2 AAA) are made as a back up for the clock and alarms only, and would not be powerful enough to run the radio on their own.

Won't play


I put in a NiMH AAA battery in it, and it turned on. I tested it with new alkaline and copper top batteries and it would not turn on. Must not like the 1.5 volts only 1.4 volts.

Not turning on


This happens to me on my Lyra MP3 player when my battery is low. If you have a fresh AAA battery in it, and it is in the right way and your lock on the back of your Lyra is OFF, and you still only get a blink, then you have a defective unit. Return it to RCA and get another one.
