The screen on my TI-89 Titanium turned blue after replacing batteries? How do I fix this? It turns on and off but does not respond to any other buttons.


If you cannot see anything on the screen, you may need to adjust the graphing TI 89 Titanium calculator contrast :

1.To darken the screen, press and release 2nd key, and then press and hold up-arrow key until the display is sufficiently dark.

2. To lighten the screen, press and release 2nd key, and then press and hold down-arrow key until the display is sufficiently light.

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.

My ti-89 screen is frozen and wont accept input


Remove the batteries and wait a minute or two. Put them back in and turn the calc back on and it should function normally. Check for stuck buttons as well, as sometimes they will cause the calc to appear "frozen".

How do i find a online calculator like a texas instrument I NEED ONE


Hi,
You can downlod the TIEmu from this site Install it on your computer and you can run it any time you want. It can emulate the TI 89 Titanium, the TI92Plus, as well as the TI Voyage 200PLT. You need to download also the GTK 2.6 library which you have to install on your computer.
It needs TI OS's , which you can download from the TI Website as you would for a real calculator. To emulate any of the 3 calculators, download the revelvant OS.
When you run the Emulator for the fist time, point it to the location of the TI OS for the machine and it will import the files to make images.

After you learn how to use it, you will be able to switch between calculators. I do not like the emulator for the TI89 Titanium because I have a 14 inch laptop screen, but the Ti92 run at twice the size is just perfect.

If you are not familiar with the calculators above, you can download the Virtual TI (version 2.5). It emulates the TI83Plus. It is available at ticalc.org

Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

When I turn the switch on, ti-89 titanium does not turn on.


If you connect calculator to computer using Ti connect device explorer you might be able to see what files are on the calculator. I don't know if you downloaded from the web but, 3rd party programs and shells tent to miss up the calculator. This would able you to delete out possible problems which could be re installed later.
