Hi,

TI-89 has a backup battery.You should be able to take it out by lifting the panel for the regular batteries, its right above them. You'll need to unscrew it with a small Phillips head screw driver.Pull it out for few minutes and then turn it back ON. This would reset the memory and i am pretty positive, it would fix the problem.

If problem persists, let me know.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

    Thanks for your response!!

    In this regard,

    1. 2nd - left arrow - right arrow - on

    It would reset the calculator.

    2. Update the Firmware.

    I am pretty sure, out of these 2 options, one would work. Unless, you need to send the unit for repair or get in touch with a professional on site.

    Let me know, if needed further assistance.

    Hope i helped you.

    Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

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.

I have the Ti-89 titanium calculator and will not turn on after I changed the batteries. I pushed the green button with the star and held down +. I also tried taking out the backup battery. What should I...


Hi 1945779,

Pressing the green button and, the plus sign is to raise the contrast. Keep doing that process because, if the calculator comes on and, the contrast is to low you'll never know the calculator was ever on. You should also make sure the ports are clean and nothing inside them causing the calculator to short out.


Your only suppose the have all the batteries out for 5 minute but, I had a Ti 85 that I had the batteries out for 20 minutes and, it came on. Leave them out for 5 minutes at the start of this process.


Make sure the batteries are in correctly? The batteries alternate negative/positive, positive/ negative and so on. The first time I put the batteries in, I didn't have them in correctly. I know if it happen to me that anybody could make the same mistake. The small battery should have a plus sign facing up when it is installed properly. And of course, the calculator will never come on if the batteries aren't in correctly.

Setting up the computer and, calculator for new OS installation.

  • Make sure TI Connect software is installed on the PC.
  • Connect the TI Connectivity cable to the Ti89 titanium and the computer.
  • Do not start the TI Connect software, just have it ready and, on the desktop.
  • Download the Ti89 Titanium v3.10 OS to the PC's desktop.

Reset the RAM first. If the calculator still won't turn on goto the next paragraph and, set of instructions. On the Ti89 family, press and hold the [2nd] [Left Arrow] and [Right Arrow] keys. then press and release the [ON] key. This should reinitialize the operating system, in which you should see a progress bar or, "Installation in Progress" displayed on the screen.



Hold down the APPS key and, take one AAA battery out of the calculator. Put the one AAA battery back in while still holding down the APPS key. Release the [APPS] key and, be ready to install the new OS v3.10, ASAP!!! The (older Ti89) may need to press [ALPHA] [9] or, just [9] when the calculator display's, "Press to install..." and, then they need to install the new OS, ASAP!!! You have to do this process in the right sequence because, the calculator will be destroyed if you do not.


You can either drag and, drop the new OS into the TI Connect icon (pictured below), on the desktop.


oneplusgh_52.jpg



Or click, Start and open Programs, then open TI Tools, then open TI Connect, then open TI OSDownloader. Then just follow the instructions the software gives you. The best way is to drag and, drop the OS into the TI Connect icon because, you know your installing the latest OS. TI OSDownloader might not give you the latest OS version.


If this procedure doesn't work and, is still under "Warranty", I'd see if I could get a replacement from Texas Instruments. Even if out of "Warranty", I'd would still seek replacement with Texas Instruments.


If you have any question just post a comment and, I'll respond quickly.

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.

Hello,
If calculator displays busy it means it is trying to find the solution to the problem you downloaded on it. It cannot do multitasking.

How do you restore a TI-89 Titanium clac


Perhaps one of the following sources will be helpful:

To reset the TI-89 family, TI-92 family and Voyage 200 graphing calculators, press [2nd] [6] (reads MEM over the key). The [F1] menu appears and contains the following options:
  • All RAM - Clears all variables and programs from RAM only. This will not delete items from Archive or Apps.
  • Defaults - Does not clear any files from the calculator. Instead, this option resets the calculator settings to default, including the Mode, Graph Format, Table Setup, and other settings.
  • Vars - Clears all variables from Archive (Flash ROM). This option will NOT delete Apps or variables stored in RAM memory.
  • Apps - Clears all Apps from Archive. This will not delete any variables.
  • Both - Will clear all Apps and Variables from Archive. This will not delete any Variables from RAM.
  • All Memory - Clears everything from RAM and Archive, leaving only the Calculator OS and its components.
For example, I think you will want to follow the last step above... which would be to press [2nd] [6] [F1] [1] [1] [ENTER] [ENTER].




Also, if you are looking to clear all the RAM in another way I would take a look at the guidebook, which is downloadable from the following site in PDF format.

http://education.ti.com/downloads/guidebooks/graphing/89ti/TI89TitaniumGuidebook_Part2_EN.pdf

Take a look at page 951 and 952 for another way to clear the RAM

Ti 89 Titanium


The only option or keys that will work is the ENTER key and the arrow keys. Try to get your arrow key to work by arrowing down and hit enter hopefully change you to something different.
Next, if at all possible can you hit the MODE key or get into the mode. If you get into the MODE select F3 and then arrow down twice or all the way to the bottom and at APPS Desktop select 1:OFF and then hit the ENTER key. Next, What I really think you need to do is reinstall the Ti 89 OS software. To do so you would need to connect to your computer or another Ti 89 Titanium to your Ti 89 Titanium. If you have Ti connect computer software (from the Ti site) connected to your Ti 89 Titanium it might help you more in troubleshooting any further problems too. You might be able to delete corrupt files that would free your calculator up and start running better.

TI-89 Won't Turn On


Please don't get your hopes up, but perhaps something in the following few suggestions will work:

For the TI-89 Family, TI-92 Family, and Voyage™ 200:
  1. 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. 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...". You will need to restore the calculator's operating system.
To reinstall the Calculator's operating system, take a look at the following TI site.

http://epsstore.ti.com/OA_HTML/csksxvm.jsp?nSetNumber=12089

I would hunt around on the TI knowledge base to see if there are some more useful suggestions if nothing above works. If I find any more info that could be useful I will post it.
