Check to make sure TI-Connect is looking on the right port, whether USB or serial. If you have a serial cable, you might consider using Ti's Graph-Link software to connect. I have had trouble getting it to work right with TI-Connect. You can find Graph-Link on TI's Education site under Downloads > Connectivity Software. I personally prefer the free program TiLP, which runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux and supports whatever cable you want. Hope this helps!

How do I fix Error: TI-89 Detected, but could not get status with the TI-89
using the TI Connect software for Windows?
The Operating System (OS) will need to be updated on the TI-89 in order for the TI Connect™ software to detect the status. Try the following procedure to install the OS from the TI-89 Boot Screen. Make sure TI Connect 1.6 is installed on the PC.
• Connect the TI Connectivity cable to the TI-89 and the computer.
• Do not start the TI Connect software.
• Download the TI-89 v2.09 OS onto the PC's desktop.
**Force TI-89 into "Boot screen" (See instructions below**
• "Press I to install..." ([ALPHA]. [ 9 ]).
• Click on Start >> Programs >> TI Tools >> TI Connect >> TI OSDownloader.
• Follow the on-screen directions to install OS version 2.09.
The download should begin.
**Steps for Boot Screen:**
• Take one AAA battery out, press and hold down the Apps key while reinserting the battery to force device into the Boot Code screen.
• "Press I to install..." will appear.
Once the OS has completed installation, the TI Connect™ software will be able to detect the TI-89.

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.

I just upgraded my ti89 and now it will not detect in windows 7


I'm going to take it that your Ti 89 upgrade is a Ti 89 OS update. Check and make sure your Ti 89 OS is up to date with with OS 2.09v. For ti 89 Titanium your OS should be 3.10v. To check the version of your OS from the home screen press, [F1] [A]-About. The OS version should show up at the second line from the top of the "About" window that pops up. If you don't have the updated OS version you should go to the Ti web site and download it. Now let's try getting the computer and calculator connected.

When you have your computer and, Ti 89 calculator connected the calculator should be on and, at the home screen.

Procedure 1.

Go to your Start Menu and search for Device Manager.

Open up Device Manager.
Scroll to the USB controller and click the +. Turn the calculator ON then connect the USB cable to your PC. A new device will appear on the USB controller.
Right-click on the new device and, choose Update Driver Software. The Hardware Update Wizard will appear.
Choose "Browse my computer for driver software".
In the search field type in C:\Program Files\TI Education\Driver Files. Look for the tiehdusb.inf driver file.
Click on Next to finish installing the driver properly
Once the driver is installed click Finish.

Procedure 2.

Now click on the "Ti Connect" software on your desktop. Double-click the Ti Device Explorer located to the left inside the Ti connect window.

oneplusgh_41.jpg

The software should start looking for your calculator. A pop-up should display looking something like what is pictured below. Under device your calculator should display. If your calculator is located the software will highlight on to it. Click, "Select" and another window should pop-up.

oneplusgh_39.jpg

The next pop-up should look something like this. If your Ti 89 is present it will show up next to device and, probably won't say Titanium. Your cable type and port should be listed too.

oneplusgh_40.jpg

If all the information is correct in the window that appears click "OK" and, you should be able to start downloading. You can skip the rest of the procedures. If your Ti 89 still won't connect to the computer goto Procedure 3 unless you have already tried Procedure 3, then goto procedure 4.

Procedure 3.

If the above procedure still does not help then try un-installing and, re-installing the Ti Connect software. After un-installing re-boot your computer. After re-booting your computer you can get the latest copy of Ti Connect software by going to the Texas Instruments web site. You can get to that site instantly by clicking, "Ti Connect software" At this Ti site under "View: Connectivity Software", Click, "the OS link that applies to your computers operating system". Next, click the Download Item, "Ti Connect software for ....OS". 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 Connect software for ....OS will be 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, "Desktop."

Next right-click the Ti Connect executable on your desktop and select, "Properties." Then click the "Compatibility" tab located at the top of the "Properties" window. Click the box next to "Run this program in compatibility mode for." and select "Windows XP Service Pack 2" from the drop-down menu. Click "Apply" and choose "OK." Double-click the TI Connect executable and select "Next" to begin the installation. Click "Yes" to OK the installation process to proceed. Then click "Finish" to complete the installation. Next, reboot your computer.

Now go back and try Procedure 1 and 2 again. If you have already tried Procedure 1 and 2 twice, go to Procedure 4.

Procedure 4.

If the above procedures fail then try a different cable and if possible a different computer.
If trying different cables/computers fails, please contact and fill out a Ti Cares Customer Assistance Form. You can get there by clicking this link, " Ti Cares Customer Assistance Form "

Attach a system information file to the email reply you receive from "Ti Cares Customer Assistance Form."

To get the system information file:

Go to Start Menu and search for System Info
Once loaded, click on File and choose Save
Name the file FirstNameLastName.nfo
Please check to make sure that system info file(.nfo) is the selected type of file.
Attach the .nfo file to the email reply

Ti 89 detected but couldn't get status


Hello,
Here is what the FAQ and Knowledge Base area of the TI site has to say about the problem you are having. Hope it helps.

How do I correct the error message "TI-83 Plus or TI-89 detected, but could not get status" using the TI Connect software for Windows®?

The Operating System (OS) will need to be updated on the TI-83 Plus family or TI-89 calculator in order for the TI Connect software to detect the status. Try the following procedure to install the OS from the TI-83 Plus and TI-89 Boot Screen. Make sure TI Connect 1.6 is installed on the PC.

If using a TI-89 calculator:
• Connect the TI Connectivity cable to the TI-89 calculator and the computer.
• Do not start the TI Connect software.
• Download the TI-89 v2.09 OS onto the PC's desktop.
**Force the TI-89 into the "Boot screen" (see instructions below)**

Stuck on Software Installation screen after failed OS instal


Hello,
You do not say if the installation proceeded to some degree or did not start at all. It seems to be hung because the website was too slow.
I suggest you interrupt the installation with [Esc] or [Diamond][QUIT]. Then download the OS on your computer and drag and drop OS on the open window of TI Connect to transfer it to calculator.
Press the [Diamond][QUIT] several times. If it refuses, all that is left for you to do is remove main batteries and restart the installation as described above.
Hope it helps.

It says that i have to download new software, but dnt know how.


Hello,
Use the following link to go to education.ti.com
http://education.ti.com/educationportal/downloadcenter/SoftwareList.do?website=US&tabId=1&paneId=2
to download specific software for the TI83PLUS (Operating system , Apps or others.)
Use this second link to download the TIConnect software for Windows (if you use Windows). You may already have the latest version on the CD that was with the calculator.
http://education.ti.com/educationportal/downloadcenter/SoftwareDetail.do?website=US&tabId=1&appId=183

Install the TIconnect software on you computer. Execute TIconnect. Then connect you calculator to the computer with the TISilverLink Cable. Turn calculator on.
Verify that connection is established by clicking the TI Device Explorer icon in the TI connect main window. If it is established, you can Cilck the Update button at the top of the TIconnect Main window. It will update The OS, and the applications that are installed on you calculator.

Later if you go to education.ti.com and find other applications you would like on your calculator, download them on your computer. If you run TIConnect software you will be able to drag an application and drop it on the TIConnect main window and it will be installed on your calculator.

Hope it helps.
