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.

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
reached.

Ti-84 says corrupt or invalid


You should feel lucky that the calculator refused to accept your transfert of a corrupt or invalid program. Find a non corrupted game or just use the calculator as it was intended to be used.
You may find games on the TIcalc.org website. Their use is at your own risk.

What do I do if nothing will download onto my TI-84 Plus calculator?


If you cannot download, that is because the calculator is not connected correctly or the correct drivers are not installed. If TI connect is able to recognize your calculator you will be able to transfer to and from the calculator. Try connecting through the IO port with the TI USB Silver cable. When all connections are correct and calculator is recognized there may still be a problem tranferring files if the batteries are too weak.

My TI-84 plus silver edition calculator is not responding. Whenever I press a button it takes forever to put it up on the screen or it doesn't work at all! I need some serious help with this. I tried...


Hi purzabumafu8,

You need to re-install the Ti 84 Plus OS on both calculators, ASAP!!! You can fix these problems by installing the newest Ti 84 Plus 2.55v. MP OS, operating system. Use fresh batteries.

If you have a friend that has a Ti 84 Plus or, Ti 84 Plus Silver Edition you can connect the two calculators together through the USB or, IO link ports. Then they can send you a copy of their OS, while you receive it on your Ti 84 Plus. Hopefully, your friend will have Ti84 Plus 2.55v. MP OS on their calculator or, it might not work. Link the two calculator together through the USB or, IO link ports with the proper cable. If don't have another reliable calculator to connect too, you'll have to connect the calculator to a computer to download the OS, goto Procedure 5. If your downloading off another calculator goto Procedure 1.

Important Note: Never disconnect a TI Connectivity Cable during a transfer. Lost of power during installation of OS will destroy your calculator.

Procedure1. Procedure to linking to another calculator.
On their calculator press, [2nd][Link][G] [Right-Arrow]. On your calculator press, [2nd] [Link] [Right-Arrow] [Enter] and, then press [ENTER] on their calculator too. Their calculator should say, "TRANSMIT" and, your's will say "Receiving." Then on both calculators once transfer is complete press, [2nd][MODE] to quit and, return to the Home screen. If the OS was transferred then your finished with these procedures. If your calculator won't turn on or, is locked up try the Procedure 2, below.

Procedure 2.

Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold the [DEL] key. While holding [DEL], reinsert the AAA battery and then turn the calculator on. The calculator should display
"Waiting...Please install calculator software now". If calculator did not turn on or, is still locked up goto Procedure 3, unless already did Procedure 3, then goto Procedure 4. If you calculator does come on and is responding and, your connect to another calculator goto Procedure 1. If you calculator does come on and is responding and, your connect to a computer goto Procedure 7.


Procedure 3.

Remove all of the batteries including the round lithium battery for 5 minutes. After the 5 minute period, reinsert all of the batteries and turn the calculator on. Adjust the contrast if necessary. Goto Procedure 2.


Procedure 4.

If the above process did not work. Try re-doing the Procedure 2, and, this time extend the time in Procedure 3, by 5 minutes to 10 minutes before you put all the batteries back in the calculator. These calculators can be a little stubborn at times so, keep trying Procedure 2.



Procedure 5.

If you can't find a calculator to connect too, you can connect your Ti 84 Plus to a computer that has Ti Connect software on it. If you need to connect your Ti 84 Plus to a computer make sure the Ti Connect software is operating properly. You do not want any hang-ups while installing the Ti 84 Plus OS.
Procedure 6. Procedure to installing the latest Ti84 Plus 2.55v. MP OS. TI OSDownloader does not always install the latest OS.
You can get the latest copy of Ti84 Plus 2.55v. MP OS and, guidebook by going to the Texas Instruments web site. You can get to that site instantly by clicking, "Ti 84 Plus 2.55v. MP OS!" Once your at the Ti site click the Download Item, "Ti84 Plus family operating system". 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 Ti84 Plus family operating system will download to you.
Next, click "SAVE" and then a window to a folder will pop up. It is probably a window to a folder that you download too. If so, you may want to change it and, save to this folder, "My Documents \ My TI Data \ Downloads". You can also go back and, download the Ti 84 Plus guidebook too, if needed. If your calculator will not turn on or, is locked up goto Procedure 2. Or else goto Procedure 7.

Procedure 7.
Important Note: Never disconnect a TI Connectivity Cable during a transfer. Lost of power during installation of OS will destroy your calculator.
Link your computer and, Ti 84 Plus calculator with the USB cable or, Direct Black Link cable that came with the Ti 84 Plus calculator. Next, drag the Ti 84 Plus 2.55v MP OS that you saved earlier in "My Documents \ My TI Data \ Downloads" out of that folder and, drop it in the "Ti Connect" icon on the desktop. Click, "Continue" when the "Erase Warning" pops up and, the new Ti 84 Plus 2.55v MP OS will begin to install. Next, the Ti Device window should pop up and, highlight the port when it finds what your Ti 84 Plus is using, USB1 cable or, Direct Black COM1.

When the Ti Device Explorer finds and, highlights your calculator's information click, "Select." Then click, "Yes" when the next window shows up with your calculator's information and, the OS will continue to download. Upon completion the newest Ti 84 Plus 2.55v. MP OS will be installed.

The Finance App is part of the Operating system. You cannot get rid of it. The other Applications can be deleted from Archive Memory.
To restore them:
  1. Download them from education.ti.com
  2. Connect calculator to computer
  3. Run TI Connect.
  4. Drag and Drop an App onto the TI connect Main window
  5. The App should transfer to calculator
  6. After transferring one or two Apps, Press [2nd][MODE] to (QUIT) and let the calculator defragment the memory.
  7. Transfer one or two more Apps.

The memory button on my TI-84 Plus will not function


If you connect it to the computer using ti connect device explorer you can try to do everything from there. Manage your memory. If you saying the plus sign is broke too, because it is the memory key too. I wonder if you "+">a would work. Just 2nd recall "a" when you need the plus sign. You can store it in any variable you want. Setting up systems to operate your calculator's memory management can be done on command or Entry Line. Much easier with Ti connect. You don't really need the plus sign or memory key to run very good memory management programs. Just remember to download from this site my ti 84 plus silver manual on how unarchive and run programs. I really don't recommend taking the calculator apart, they usually end up broke at that point.

I cannot access my memory


"How can i delete this program without using memory?"

By that I am assuming the memory key on the TI, the only other way to remove applications is through the TI connect software which will require the use of a USB cable in the case of the TI-84.

TI connect will also let you backup anything important you may have on your calc. Good Luck:

How do I download games onto my calculator?


You put your calculator in a pot of boiling water and than go to the dollar store. At the dollar store you need to buy a bag of Doritios. Once you have the Doritios, climb the nearest tree and consume them. One more thing- you're welcome :-).
