Hello,
Press [2nd][QUIT]. If that does not work, remove the main batteries. Wait a little while, then insert them back again. It will attempt to continue garbage collection but will say Ram cleared. Clear the screen ant start using calculator.

Hope it helps.

Is it possible to change the faceplate of the TI-84 Plus calculator?


Yes, you can change the faceplate of the TI 84PLUS Silver Edition only, not the TI 84 Plus. Face plates are available for purchase at the TI online store.When you go the online store, select the country, then the calculator model. You will find them under accessories for the TI 84 Plus SE.

My TI-84 calculator says "Garbage Collecting" and won't work, how should I reset it?


Found at www.epsstore.ti.com

What can be done if a TI-83 Plus family or TI-84 Plus family calculator displays Garbage Collecting... for more than 20 minutes?

The garbage collection allows the cleanup of unused archive memory. It deletes unarchived variables from the user data archive and it rearranges the remaining variables into consecutive blocks. When a variable is unarchived, the Archive free memory amount increases immediately, but the space is not actually available until after the next garbage collection.

If garbage collecting is more than 20 minutes, the calculator has possibly locked up and will need to be reset.

The reset procedure will delete all the items that are in the memory of the graphing calculator. Use the reset procedure below:
• Remove 1 AAA battery.
• Press and hold down the [DEL] key.
• While holding down the [DEL] key, replace the AAA battery, and press the [ON] Key.

The message Waiting... Please install calculator software should appear. At this point, it will be necessary to reinstall the calculator's operating system.
• Connect the calculator to the computer using the TI Connectivity Cable or DirectUSB Cable.

Please post if this was helpful...
• In Windows®, click on Start >> Programs >> TI Tools >> TI Connect >> TI OS Downloader.
• In MacOS® X, open Hard Drive >> Applications >> TI Connect >> TI OS Restore.
• Follow the directions on screen to reinstall the calculator's operating system.

I suppose they can be replaced. You should contact the TI Consumer Support Department at ti-cares@ti.com. They will be able to tell you where in your area of residence you can have the calculators serviced and how much It will cost you.

I have heard about a Casio program that gives credit towards the purchase of Casio calculators in exchange of TI calculators. Here is the link to the trade-in program.
I believe it is worth investigating this. You may end up replacing the calculators at a lower price. Casio calculators are very good and less expensive than the TI. You will be surprised to hear that Casio is the inventor of the LCD screen.

When I replaced the batteries in my TI-84 plus the screen now reads "garbage collecting" and nothing works. Any suggestions?


Whenever my calculator has said that, it usually takes a long time, especially if you haven't garbage collected in a while. I don't see why it wouldn't stop eventually, but if it seems like it never will, take out all the batteries and the back up battery behind the door with the screw. Leave them out for like a whole day. When you replace them it should reset your calculator.

Ti85


kinda. The TI-85 programs differently, lacks a table feature, is not upgradable, has redefinable keys, has a larger screen, is smaller, energy efficient, TI-86 semi-compatible, and is older.
The TI-84+ has archive memory, flash-upgradable, FSTN (clearer) screen, 16*8 screen, USB On-The-Go compliant, almost a centimeter longer, assembly language support, and a tad bit faster.

TI-82: $89
TI-83 Plus: $79-99
Free TI-85: $0
TI-84 plus: $119.99
TI-84+SE: $129-139
TI-89 Titanium: $149

Garbage Collecting


graphing calulators work much like computers. The have RAM space so they can remember what you have done recently and stuff like that. So when it's garbage collecting it means it's trying to find more space. This generally means that you don't have much much ARC or RAM space left. You can see this under your memerory manager. (2nd + enter) then you can reset your calculaor(2nd plus 7 1 2) or you can go to memory manager and unarchive your programs. Fur an example you have TI 84. Most new TI 84 have sientific tools. so if you don't you it take away the archive (*) by pressing enter and then hit DEL. the more RAM space and ARC space should make it so it doens't garababe collect. Hope this works. i can help you more if this doesn't work. GOOD LUCK
