Complex number

Try entering on the same command line your calculation followed by the ToFrac command. That should work. Here is a screen capture from a TI83Plus in complex mode (a+ib).

When i turn on texas t1-82, there are bars all ofer the place and you can still type numbers ive tried everything please help!

It may just be that the calculator is too old and some of its hardware is no longer in top shape. It may be time to get another one. TI has a very beautiful calculator the TI Nspire CAS that display 65000 colors. Casio too has a color calculator the Prizm. The prices are not too high compared to the selling price of the old TI83Plus.

Can you transfer ti83 os to ti 84?

The TI83Plus has the capability to transfer its OS to another handheld device. It is possible that the TI84Plus hardware will accept it. But why downgrade?. Why not resinstall the OS? The latest version 2.55MP is available on the TI website.
You say emphatically that you tried everything and maybe so, but I will ask you: Have tried to connect the calculator to a computer and explored its content with TI connect. You may retrieve some information about its status.
The TI connect software will allow you to transfer a version of the OS even if the calculator appears to refuse to turn ON (screen contrast problem.) If it cannot it will let you know.

Try again.

I need to download something to my TI-84 plus calculator, but i dont have the disc it came with. What do I need to do?

No need for the disc. Go to the website. Click Download menu, select Software and apps, Select Graphing calculators, TI83PLUS/TI84PLUS family and find the TI-Connect 1.6 connectivity software.
Install it on the computer then connect the calculator to computer with the TI SilverLink cable . Open TIConnect, Drag and Drop applications on the TI Connect main window to transfer to calculator.

If you use the USB mini to standard (Direct cable) you may have to install the drivers.
In Windows, when the Found New Hardware window asks you to look for the driver do not let it do it automatically. , select option "Let me show you where it is (not the actual wording)" and make sure you select TI Educational Handheld.

Restore apps to TI-84 Plus

I am always happy to polish the apple...before I eat it. (Just joking!)

All the applications that were preloaded on your calculators are available to download freely from Use the tab Download--> Apps and software. Then select software for the TI83/TI84 Family. While you are at the site download the TI Connect, if you do not have it already. The link follows. You can also download the latest OS there. (Beware: while applications and programs are compatible with the TI83 and 84, the Operating systems are not.)

Install TI connect on your computer and run it to open the main Window.Then connect you calculator to a USB port and, in the TIConnect main window Click the TIDeviceInfo icon. Software will try to retrieve the info. If it does your calculator is ready to communicate with the computer.

If it tells you Device Not found , Click communication settings in same pop up window where it said Not found, and Select Device, Select Cable (USB or TIsilver cable), Select Port (USB1) and Click OK..

If you are lucky and it works, you can reinstall the OS, which can be downloaded from You drag and drop the OS on the TIconnect main window. Calculator must of course be connected to computer. To install an application already downloaded to your computer, drag it to the main window of TI Connect and drop it. Keep installing, the appilcations you want.

If you have problem with TIconnect, use the calc-to-calc cable to transfer the Apps from a working calculator. You should be on Receive mode [2nd][Link] --->>Receive. (When both calculators are ready hit enter.) The other calculator must be set to Send [2nd][Link][SEND][C:Apps]. A list of Apps appears. Scroll down the list. If you want to transmit un app you press [ENTER] when the arrow reaches its line. Once an app is selected , a small square appears on the left. After the selection, Hit transmit. I suggest you transfer Apps, one after the other. Avoid selecting them all and send them all at one go.

If you want to transfer the OS of a working calculator the sending calculator must be on [2nd][Link][SEND][SendOS]. TI83Plus OS is not compatible with TI84Plus nor TI84PLUS Silver edition OS.

In addition to the preloaded applications, you can also transfer programs the same way. For a repository of TI83PLUS/TI84PLUS and TI84+ SE, go to (or com), visit the archive section of the site.

Hope it helps.

Won't turn on...

And NO I will not suggest to buy a new one. And I am sorry to contradict you, but there may be many reasons why a claculator DOES not work. To diagnose the problem one ( I say one, not you) should start from the simplest to the hardest AND remain open to all reasonnable suggestions.

1st. Since batteries are new, there is a possibility that the ones that stayed a year in the calculator may have leaked. In that case a cleaning of the batterey compartment and especially the terminals (electrical contacts) may solve the problem.
2. It is possible that the screen display is too light and the user is not able to see the contents of the screen. In that case, screen can be darkened.
Press [2nd] key and release it.
Press [ArrowUP] and release it.
Repeat the two steps in sequence (patiently) several times until one sees some thing on the display.

3. The OS may be corrupted, because one should never remove all 5 batteries from the calculator (the backup, and the 4 AAA batteries). If OS is corrupted, one may try to reinstall it by transferring the OS from a similar calculator ( a TI83PLUS SE, possibly a TI83PLUS, not a TI3, nor a TI84 ).
4. One can also try to reinstall the OS through a computer, using the TIConnect softwrare downloadable from and a TI SilverLink USB cable, or a TI Balck GraphLink Serial cable. The latest OS is available at

5.One can surf the TI calculator knowledge base to look for some uncommon TI83PLUS SE problems.

I think I have exhausted all the reasonable suggestions concerning the steps I would follow to diagnose my calculator problem.

Hope it helps.
