Re: Memory Full Error

This is really weird. The TI 84 has nine times for memory then the 83 so if you still can i would try to return it to the store. Cause i think this is just a defect. I might be wrong. Hope this helps. GOOD LUCK

Ti-84 ERR:MEMORY, but i think I have plenty of free memory

If you get Memory Error its meaninig that memory is insufficient to perform the instruction or function. You must delete items from memory
before executing the instruction or function.
Recursive problems return this error; for example,
graphing the equation Y1=Y1.
Branching out of an If/Then, For(, While, or Repeat
loop with a Goto also can return this error because
the End statement that terminates the loop is never

When you display the APPS list in the MEMory management tool, you will notice that there is a star to the left of app names. That means that they are archived. If you want to delete an app, press the DEL key. You will be prompted to confirm the deletion. If you press 2:Yes, the app will be deleted.

I'm using the t and z test on my TI-84 Plus graphing calculator. When I go to enter data it will only let me enter in the standard deviation and mean but then it gives me an error message that states ERR:...

You do not have enough memory free. You will need to clear RAM and possibly delete programs to free up space.

Pressing [2nd][+] will take you to the memory management functions. From this menus you can delete from Programs, Applications and can also reset your RAM. Doing any of these should help free up enough memory.

I am trying to download a game onto my Ti-84 Plus calculator, but it says I have insufficient memory and I can't put it on. how can I fix that?

Considering the fact that you cannot add a memory card to the calculator you have two options:
  1. Preserve the limited RAM and Flash memory of the calculator and use it just as a calculator: No games.
  2. Delete unnecessary applications (especially the languages you do not understand and do not need). If you delete a language you should also delete the other applications that are in that language. Periodic table, Study cards etc.
To delete an application
  1. Press [2nd][[+] to open the (MEM)ory management
  2. Select [2:Mem Mgt/Del..]
  3. Scroll down till you reach [A:Apps]
  4. Highlight and Press {ENTER]
  5. Use down arrow to highlight an application you do not want and press the [DEL] button.
  6. You will be asked "Are you Sure?"
  7. If you are sure you want to delete press [2:Yes] to confirm the deletion.
Keep in mind that most problems of fast draining of batteries, strange calculator behavio(u)r are related to the use of 3rd party games downloaded from the INTERNET.

When i press most buttons it gives me the message ERR:MEMORY i cant access memory so i cant reset ram or delete . also i can not connect to my cpu it says TI-84 plus Silver Edition detected, but couldn't...

From the TI knowledge base and FAQ

How do I correct ERR: MEMORY on a TI-83 family or TI-84 Plus family graphing calculator?

An ERR: MEMORY is given when there is not enough memory to perform the instruction or function. To increase available memory by deleting the contents of any variable (real or complex number, list, matrix, Y= variable, program, Apps, AppVars, picture, graph database, or string), follow these steps. • Press [2nd] [MEM] to display the MEMORY menu.
• Press 2: Mem Mgmt/Del.
• Select a variable or data that needs to be deleted and press [ENTER].
• Use the arrow keys to move the cursor next to the item, and then press [DEL]. The variable or data should now be deleted from the memory.
When deleting programs or Apps, a message asking for confirmation will appear. Select 2:Yes to continue. To leave any variable screen without deleting anything, press [2nd] [MODE].
With the exemption of programs and Apps, no warning will be given to verify the deletion.Some system variables, such as the last-answer variable Ans and the statistical variable RegEQ, cannot be deleted.

Hope it helps.

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
