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.

k.....so i had the same problem but i figured out whats up...
if you find another 89 that is the same model....for example if you have a titanium.....find another titanium....and get a var link cable and plug em in to both calcs......
on the one that is working hit 2nd "-" to open up varlink.
hit F3 to open up "link" and highlight send OS but dont send it yet.
On the calc that isnt working correctly open up varlink (2nd "-") and hit F3 and highlight and click recieve OS.
Then on the calc that is working click send OS.
THis will erase your applications like notefolio and other things but once your calc recieves the OS you can go back to varlink and send all the "flashapp" files.
Just make sure when you use varlink you always click recieve before you send it.....otherwise it will give you an error.
hope this helps
