    Since you say frozen, I assume you can see the screen and so it's not a contrast problem.

    Try a hard reset. Remove all four AAA batteries. Press and hold down the ON key for at least ten seconds. Replace the batteries. Does the calculator turn on and function properly now?

Dead Battery?

Take out the batteries. Also take out the backup battery. It is a button battery beneath the screw in the battery compartment. Check the button battery volts with a multi-meter. After 5 minutes put the button battery back in and then the fresh batteries. It might work now. Alternatively take out a battery, then hold the clear button and put the battery back in. Then try to turn on. If it still does not work take out a battery press the del button and put the battery back in.

My ti-89 is frozen, no matter what keys i press.and although i took off 4 batteries, but when i put batteries back, it is still same, menu screen.

First try the reset code which is pressing Left-Right-Shift and On at the same time. If that doesn't work you can try removing the batteries and putting them back in while holding the (-) and ) buttons.
If those don't work, there is a back-up battery located under a panel just above the four normal batteries underneath the battery cover. Removing this in addition to the four normal batteries should reset your calculator entirely.
If none of these work then there may be a short in the circuits of your calculator which could have been caused by leaking batteries. In this case you can try disassembling the calculator (being careful to remember how it goes back together) and cleaning the circuit board with circuit cleaner.

My TI-84 is frozen/extremely irresponsive. I've tried removing a battery and replacing them with new ones. I've tried holding clear while removing and inserting a battery. Also have tried holding del while...

Try taking the batteries out for more than 30 seconds, then holding on while putting them back in. Then press enter when you try to graph.
If that doesn't work, there seems to be a problem with your firmware, you will want to send the calculator back to TI.
Best of luck!!!

My ti-83 stopped working after i used rechargeable battteries. Now i realized I'm not suppose to use them. Now whenever i turn the calculator on, i can't turn it off. I will try to press letters or numbers...

I'm thinking the calculator itself froze (stalled), or the circuit board is taking a long time to process the your command (telling the calculator to turn off). Maybe you should wait a few hours or so and see if it's still on. Did you perhaps take the batteries out while the calculator was still on? You may have damage the circuits inside of the calculator by taking the batteries out while the calculator itself was still on. Maybe if you put some new batteries in the battery compartment and press the "ON" button, it might function properly. This is a suggestion and I hope this works.

I had the same problem with mine freezing. It happened when I kept pressing the back track button (on left side) to go back to an earlier song. It then froze in the middle of a song, couldn't hear the song, the time of the song was frozen, etc., and the unit stayed lit, despite pressing all the buttons. I tried holding down power but nothing happened. I read another person's post that you need to hold it down 15-30 seconds. I did this and it worked, you just have to hold it down until it shuts down, which was about 15 seconds as suggested, could be longer for others.
For me, next time I wont keep clicking the tracks repeatedly, I'll simply go out of the song and back to the song I want through the menu.
Thank you for the good posts. Glad I didn't have to mess with the battery like others....

TI-89 Backup Battery

Usually you will be able to re-install everything. And I would try uninstalling the program first then if that doen't work just pull the batteries out and put them back in or just press the reset button. Hope this helps. =)

Calculator is frozen

Well, not a long time ago I have had a similar trouble regarding to my Texas Instruments Calculator Voyage 200. It was forzen too doing some calculus. Also, one friend had a similar problem regarding to the fozen calculator... I fixed it by reading in the manual that it can be reset!!!...There is a combination of keys that you can press to reset the calculator...this obligates the calculator to load the OS from the EPROM memory where is this basic sofware!!!... If I do not remember wrong the keys are: 2nd + Lock + on/off keys!!! But try to look for the manual and in some part of it is those key combination!!! Good Luck!
