    I am having a similar problem. I was walking outside for a while one day and it was very cold. My calculator wouldn't turn on so I took out the batteries to warm them up back to room temperature. After that it turned on, but the screen was frozen and it says "Address Error" at the top. None of the keys except 2nd make the screen respond. I can't turn it off or use it at all. If anyone knows how to fix this, please let me know!

    Thanks!

Reset all the batteries including the backup. it will erase all memory but it resets the calculator

Posted on Jan 29, 2008

Hi, i was having the same problem.
I wanted to upgrade my Ti 89 titanium OS, so i run the Upgrade check inside the Ti Connect App. It downloaded the OS to a folder. Then i tryed to upgrade with that OS, and in the 99% it fails.
I guess something was wronge since the progress bar in the windows downloader app was out of sync with the calculator percentage. I downloaded myself the OS from Ti, and removed all batteries (including the backup). After plugin in the batteries again, i started the Os downloading with the new file, and the progress was perfectly synced with the calculator percentage.

it finished flawleslly and now it is working :)

please excuse my english, im spanish

Voyage 200 crash


For the TI-89 Family, TI-92 Family, and Voyage 200:
  1. Try a new set of batteries (including the backup battery).
  2. Adjust the contrast by pressing and releasing the Diamond Key key followed by pressing and releasing the [+] key; repeat as necessary. To adjust or lighten the display, use the [-] key.
  3. Users of the TI-89 Titanium or Voyage 200 should see the following case before performing the following reset procedure to prevent the loss of valuable Apps.
    On the TI-92 family or Voyage 200, hold the [2nd] key and the [hand] key, then press and release the [on] key. On the TI-89 family, press and hold the [2nd] key, left arrow, and right arrow; then press and release the [on] key. This should reinitialize the operating system, in which you should see a progress bar filling on the screen.
  4. Remove one of the AAA or AA batteries. Press and hold the [APPS] key, and while holding the [APPS] key, replace the battery and turn the unit on. TI-89, 92 Plus, or Voyage 200 users should see "Press I to install code...", and should press the [9] key. The calculator should then say, "Waiting to receive...". TI-89 Titanium users should see "Waiting to receive..." or "Waiting to received OS...".

My TI-89 Titanium's screen froze. Well actually, the cursor kept blinking but none of the buttons worked. I got it to restart using the (-) and ) button trick, but rather than going back to normal it went...


Hi kelsers,

You need to re-install your calculator's OS. After this process your Ti 89 Titanium will operate properly. If you do the process below make sure you use new batteries.

Warning!!! If you do this procedure make sure that your computer and, calculator are connect. Use Ti Connect software and, make sure you can install the OS on the calculator without any interruption. At any time even at the very beginning of this process, if your computer or, calculator gets interrupted or you have a power failure during the installation of the OS, your calculator will be destroyed. So not attempt this procedure during a thunder storm.


You can use the Ti OS Downloader but, you will have no idea what OS is stored by the Ti OS Downloader. So, I suggest following my instructions and, installing the newest Ti 89 Titanium OS 3.10v.

Procedure to installing the newest Ti 89 Titanium OS 3.10v.

You can also get the latest copy of Ti 89 Titanium OS 3.10v by going to the Texas Instruments web site. You can get to that site instantly by clicking, "Ti 89 Titanium OS 3.10v." Once your at the Ti site click the Download Item, Ti 89 Titanium OS 3.10v. Next you can login or, click "continue as guest". I'd would click the "continue as guest". Once you have click, "continue as guest" the Ti 89 Titanium OS 3.10v. will download to you. Click, "SAVE". And then a folder will pop up. It is probably a folder that you download too. If so, you may want to change it and, "Save as" to this folder, "My Documents \ My TI Data \ Downloads". You can also go back and, download the Ti 89 Titanium guidebook too, if needed.

Link your computer and calculator with the USB cable or, Direct Black Link cable that came with the calculator.

Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold the [APPS] key, and while holding the [APPS] key, replace the battery and turn the unit on. On the older TI-89 you should see "Press I to install code...", and you should press the [9] key to continue. But, on your Ti 89 titanium it should say, "Waiting to receive..." or, "Waiting to received OS...". Now you need to follow the instructions in the paragraph below to restore the calculator's operating system.

Next, drag the Ti 89 Titanium OS 3.10v. that you copied earlier to "My Documents \ My TI Data \ Downloads" out of that folder and, drop it in the "Ti Connect" icon on the desktop. Next the OS Downloader Warning will pop-up. Click, "OK" to continue and, the new OS will begin to install. The Ti Device window should pop up and, click on to the port where your Ti 89 Titanium is located, USB1 cable or Direct Black COM1. Just click, "Select" and, the OS will continue to download. Upon completion the newest Ti 89 Titanium OS 3.01v. will be installed.

A hard reset will clear all memory and should give you back control of the calculator.

Garbage collect error on a ti 89 Titanium calculator. The problem is, is that I cant archive what needs to be archived so that it wont be deleted when I garbage collect to free up space


Hello,
You can interrupt the program by removing one of the main batteries. Put battery back in calculator and turn it on. You may have to adjust contast with [2nd] and [UpArrow] keys or [2nd] and [DownArrow] keys, pressed in sequence and repeatedly until contrast is adjusted.

Reset all Ram.
If you remove apps one at time, and let garbage collector work after each deletion of apps, it may run faster and will not hang.

Hope it helps
