Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Silver Edition Graphic Calculator

Un-protect a program

I need to type in a program on a student's calculator that the link port is not working. I have the program on my calculator and on my computer, but can not get to the printout of the program. I had "protected" these programs years ago to keep students from accidentally editing them.

Instead of protected i think the word your looking for is archived??? If so just hit "2nd" then the + key then go to Memory managment/delete. Hit all and then hit enter on the program you want to unprotect. That should work. I hope this is what you wanted. Good luck

I think what debratton was referring to was the TI-GRAPH LINK program that allowed you to edit programs right on the PC. That program has a check box that allows you to put a BASIC program into protected mode. This means the code cannot be viewed. The GRAPH LINK program is still available for download at the TI website. You open up a program and uncheck the "Protected" box.

For an TI-84 (Texas Instruments)
protected you need to have a kind of application to undo it

if it is not potected by the pc in that way I don't know it either

you need the application "MirageOS" for undoing this

You enter the apps than you see "main" puss enter
than you see the programs (if you don't see it it is a protection I don't know) than put your cursor on the progrem you want and puss 'tan' [you have now unprotected the program] so quit and you can edit it now

I am using Window XP. How to download software that includes a driver to my computer to use my TI-nspire CX ?


In the clamshell or the box the calculator came in, there is a CD. Use it to install the drivers and the TI Nspire Computer Link software. If it came with the TINspire CX student software you can install that too.

After that you can hook the calculator to the computer and run the TI Nspire Computer Link software or the Student/Teacher Software and it it will probe the USB port and find your calculator.

How to download the Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Calculator


1.Get linking software for your computer, such as TiLP, or TI Graph-Link, and follow the installation instructions to install it.


2.Plug your cable into the computer (where depends on what cable you have)(somtimes your computer does not have the right kind of entrance) and the other end into the calculator.

3.Start the linking program that you just installed. If it detects the calculator, everything is working fine, and proceed.

4.Download calculator software from the internet. You can find many programs athttp://www.ticalc.org

5.Make sure downloaded program is unzipped and located in a normal windows folder

6.Select the program you downloaded in your linking program (how you do this varies between programs) and send it to the calculator. For Windows this can involve finding the unzipped program in windows explorer and right clicking it (from a normal--nonzipped--folder window) and selecting "send to TI device"

7.Use the program on your calculator.

TIPS: If you have a USB cable, you will need either TiLP or TI Connect, no other software supports it

Things you'll need:

-A Texas Instruments graphing calculator

-A link cable for the calculator

-An internet connection

Can I use on the ACT exam


your model isn't listed, but read rules Calculators are only allowed to be used on the mathematics test; however, a calculator is not necessary to take the exam. Any student who attempts to use a calculator on the science exam will be dismissed and the worksheet will not be scored. It is the student's responsibility to make sure they bring sufficient batteries and that the calculator works properly. Test center personnel do not have backup calculators or batteries. 1.jpg Only certain types of calculators may be used during the test. Most four-function, scientific or graphing calculators are permitted, but some features may have to be disabled before the calculator can be used. Devices that include calculators among their functions-cell phones, laptops, PDAs-are forbidden, as are calculators with built-in algebra capabilities or QWERTY keyboard buttons. Also, certain specific models of calculators are forbidden, including the following: all Texas Instruments model numbers that begin with TI-89 and TI-92, as well as the TI-Nspire CAS (the non-CAS TI-Nspire is allowed); the Hewlett-Packard hp 48GII model and all model numbers that begin with hp 40G, hp 49G, or hp 50G; the Casio Algebra fx 2.0, ClassPad 300, and all model numbers that begin with CFX-9970G; and all electronic writing pads or pen-input devices, except for the Sharp EL 9600.
As mentioned previously, certain calculators can be used after extra features are disabled. Calculators that use paper tape, for example, may be used after the tape roll is removed. If the student has a model that makes sounds, disabling the sound feature makes the calculator acceptable for use during the test. For calculators that can communicate wirelessly, infrared ports must be covered with opaque material (such as electrician's tape or duct tape) of sufficient thickness to block infrared signals; the Hewlett-Packard hp-38G and hp-48G series are examples of this device type. Also, calculators with power cords must have the cords removed before they can be used during the exam.

I am not sure that you can find good battery operated calculators at this price range. However is as you say the testing is at the elementary level, maybe some cheap calculators found at dollar stores will do the job.
Cheap calculators are often used as promotional items.

Since testing is done on computers what not let the students/applicants use the calculator application that is found the computers. I do not know about Apple products but PC computers have a calculator usually found under Accessories (in Windows XP). If you find a way to dock the calculator application on the screen or show the students how to raise tha calculator window quickly, you will not need to buy additional calculators.

Connecting casio to texas instr


I compared two cables and noticed that they are identical. One insulating part on the TI cable is longer than the corresponding part on the Casio cable. But no matter, let us assume that the calculators share the same 2.5 mm connection.
You can verify the hardware compatibility as follows
  1. Use the Casio I/O cable to connect two TI calculators. The Casio cable wakes up the TI84PLus
  2. Use the TI I/O cable to connect to Casio calculators. The TI cable wakes up the Casio FX9550GII but not the CFX-9750GPlus nor the Graph 35. But that may not mean too much.
  3. Create a Matrix ( a 3X3 ) on one TI8xPLUS and transfer it to another TI8xPLUS using the Casio Cable.
  4. Create a small (3x3) matrix on one Casio C/FX-9750G/PLUS and transfer it to another C/FX-9750G/Plus.
  5. If you have been successful in any of the above you may try to transfer an object from a TI to a casio or from a Casio to a TI and the cable that worked above.
My feeling is that you cannot. I tried it
When I tried to transfer from a TI to a Casio, the Casio kept displaying RECEIVING , AC to cancel. The TI returned an Xmit ERROR
When I tried to transfer from a Casio to TI, the Casio quickly returned a Transmit Error, while the TI kept waiting for a transmission.

There may be other issues of memory organization, naming conventions, systems commands and program commands so on.

For each problem you want to have your students solve try to supply the procedures for both types of calculators. This, in my opinion, is the reasonable way to go. A benefit to you is that you learn the expert use of both types of calculators.
If you care to specify what kind of programs you intend to transfer from one to the other, one may be able to point you to some resources available on the web.

I am inserting a copy of an earlier post to a question similar to yours. Ignore the steps you already tried. I will add a few comments at the end just for you case. Please read the post till the end.

A Try this before thinking of repairs.

  1. Push the ON button.
  2. Even if you see nothing, press the [2nd] key and release it.
  3. Press and HOLD the UpArrow key until the screen darkens.
  4. You may have to keep pressing UpArrow for a little while before you see anything.
B If that does not work
  1. Remove one of the AAA batteries.
  2. Press and hold the [CLEAR] key.
  3. While holding [CLEAR], reinsert the AAA battery and then
  4. turn the calculator on.
  5. The calculator should display the message "RAM Cleared".
  6. Release the [CLEAR] key and then press it one more time to remove the message "RAM Cleared".
C. Third option

  1. Remove batteries including the backup battery for 5minutes.
  2. After the 5 minute period, reinsert all of the batteries and
  3. turn the calculator on.
  4. Adjust the contrast if necessary.
D. Last option

The last option requires the reinstallation of the system. So to use it you must download the TIConnect 1.6 software from education.ti.com. You must have the TI USB SilverLink or the TI Black serial cable ready.You must be connected to the Internet.
  1. Remove one of the AAA batteries.
  2. Press and hold the [DEL] key.
  3. While holding [DEL], reinsert the AAA battery and then
  4. turn the calculator on.
  5. The calculator should display "Waiting...Please install calculator software now".
  6. Connect the TI Connectivity cable between the computer and the calculator.
  7. Click on Start >> Programs >> TI Tools >> TI Connect >> TI OS Downloader.
  8. Follow the on-screen directions to reinstall the calculator's OS.
If the message "Error! Press any key to turn unit off. Then turn unit back on." appears on the graphing calculator, quickly, remove one battery from the calculator and reinstall it while the transfer is taking place.

You have several ways to connect the calculator
  • Serial Black cable that used to ship with the TI 83 Plus. It connects to a serial port on a computer and to the I/O port on the calculator. It requires the Graph Link software available on the TI web site (Downloads, Software and Apps, Connectivity)
  • USB Silver Link cable. It connects a USB port on the computer to the the I/O port on the calculator. It requires the TI connectivity software, also available on the TI Web site.
  • A USB mini A to mini B cable to connect two units.
  • An I/O cable to connect two calculators through their I/O ports.
If you do not have any type of USB cable (SilverLink, Mini A/B to Standard USB) you cannot use the USB option. You can however try to connect your calculator to a similar one through the I/O ports. If you have the I/O cable you can transfer the OS of a working calculator.

Another solution is to buy the accessory cables from the TI Online store. The I/O cable is not very expensive ( about 5 $) and the TI silver Link about 25 $. If you are a student, ask fellow students who have other types of TI calculators (TI 83Plus, Ti84 Plus, Voyage 200 PLT, TI 92/92 Plus) to lend you their TI Silver Link cable. Ask your teacher.

Can't receive programs from another calculator when linked. Already checked memory.


Hello,
Does you calculator have a communication port (USB, or serial). Hard to tell for a generic TI.

Use the link below to install TIConnect software
http://education.ti.com/educationportal/sites/US/productDetail/us_ti_connect.html You can also download the latest OS there. 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 fine.

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, Select Port and Click OK..

If you are lucky and it works, you should reinstall the OS, which can be downloaded from education.ti.com. You drag and drop the OS on the TIconnect main window. Calculator must of couse be connected to computer.

If you have problem with TIconnect, use the calc-to-calc cable to transfer the OS of a working calculator. Yous should be on Receive mode [2nd][Link] --->>Receive. (When both calculators are ready hit enter.) The other calculator, you guessed exactly right, must be on Send [2nd][Link][SEND][G:SendOS]. (When both calculators hit [ENTER])

Hope it helps
