Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Silver Edition Graphic Calculator

1 Answer

Dear Sir/madam: The wire coil that holds batteries in place is corroded and one of them is broken. The calculator works when I put the battery in and the broken coil touches the potion left in the body of the calculator. However, I am afraid that the connection will break during my exam and I shall loose data. Is there a way of changing the coil with another that I have in my old calculator? Thanks, Talat

As long as there is a small metallic part fixed in calculator body you can find a workaround. Cut a piece of aluminum foil or other thin sheet of metal that you can easily fold and stuff it between the battery and the remnant of the coil. Do not let it touch neighboring batteries.
If the broken coil has enough wire left in it you can also stretch it a bit to improve contact.

Battery replacement J-10A


Good Morning Fhaas153

Looking at a J-10 picture on eBay
http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-CASIO-J-10-ELECTRONIC-CALCULATOR-8-DIGIT-TESTED-/331587643662 , the picture of the rear says '1.5V battery x 2. Looking at this other shot
http://www.casio-calculator.com/Museum/Calculator/FGHIJ/J-10/Casio-J-10-back.jpg It looks like there is a fairly clear Slide-to-Open Battery door at the top of the rear panel. Given the battery rating at 1.5 Volts and the door size, I'd suspect it'll take either AA or AAA batteries. You should be able to slide the door and look, and most battery compartments will have an indication of the specific cell.

To be sure I'm covering both the what and the how, slide the door open. Remove old batteries if still there. Clean up contacts with a bit of fine steel wool if they are corroded or covered with old battery fuzz. Put new batteries in - negative end towards the coil springs generally. Replace sliding hatch.

Hoping this covers what you're looking for!

Why is there no fire from coil?


Hi, Greg bad connection or bad coil otherwise the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel tank empty.
2. Fuel supply valve/petcock turned off.
3. Fouled spark plugs.
4. Engine flooded as a result of overuse of the enricher.
5. Vacuum hose to the fuel supply valve/petcock disconnected, broken, cracked, or pinched.
6. Fuel valve/petcock or filter clogged.
7. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
8. Loose or corroded wire connection at the coil, battery or plug between ignition sensor and module.
9. Spark plug cables in bad condition and shorting, cable connections loose, or connected to the wrong cylinders.
10. Ignition timing incorrect due to a faulty ignition coil, ignition module or sensors (MAP, CMP, CKP, O2 and/or BAS).
11. Security alarm needs a reset.
Good luck and have a nice day.

Any other solutions for screen blackout for acer aspire one?.. id try to use the press hold fn and f2 but its not working at all?..can you help me to fix this problem?..ill wait for your response sir/madam...


Hi and welcome to fixya!

First thing you do for this is shut down the machine by just pressing and holding the power button for about 5 seconds.

Then unplugged the charger and take out the battery.
Next is press and hold the power button again for 10 seconds, without the charger and battery this time.

Put the battery back in and the charger and turn on the machine normally. This should solve the issue 95% of the time. If it does not, time to contact the warranty support for Acer.

Hope this helps!

I can't seem to get the correct batteries for my Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Calculator...can any AAA 1.5v battery use in it? I tried some duracell of that same type and they didn't work


All the AAA batteries whether non-rechargeable alkaline (Duracell, Energizer, Rayovac, Varta, Maxell, Panasonic, Sony, Sanyo, etc) will do. Each of these types of batteries has a voltage of 1.5V
You can also use rechargeable NiCd (Nickel-Cadmium) or NiMH (Nickel-Metal Hydride) 1.2V AAA. However TI Instruments say that under no circumstances should one use rechargeable batteries.

The trivial possible reasons why the the Duracell did not work are:
  1. The lot was depleted.--Replace with fresh ones
  2. The electrical terminals may be broken or dirty or corroded by a previous acid leak.---Clean the terminal even if they appear shiny. The eraser tip of a pencil should be good to rub away any dirt.
  3. You did not place them correctly: Wrong polarity. This is a very common mistake (I know from my own experience).

Broken


Here are some steps to perform in the order they are presented. The point A may solve your problem. If it does not, do the others. Please read the post till the end.

A Try this before thinking of repairs.
  1. Push the ON button.
  2. Even if you see nothing, press the [2nd] key and release it.
  3. Press and HOLD the UpArrow key until the screen darkens.
  4. You may have to keep pressing UpArrow for a little while before you see anything.
B If that does not work
  1. Remove one of the AAA batteries.
  2. Press and hold the [CLEAR] key.
  3. While holding [CLEAR], reinsert the AAA battery and then
  4. turn the calculator on.
  5. The calculator should display the message "RAM Cleared".
  6. Release the [CLEAR] key and then press it one more time to remove the message "RAM Cleared".
C. Third option
  1. Remove batteries including the backup battery for 5minutes.
  2. After the 5 minute period, reinsert all of the batteries and
  3. turn the calculator on.
  4. Adjust the contrast if necessary.
D. Last option

The last option requires the reinstallation of the system. So to use it you must download the TIConnect 1.6 software from education.ti.com. You must have the TI USB SilverLink or the TI Black serial cable ready.You must be connected to the Internet.
  1. Remove one of the AAA batteries.
  2. Press and hold the [DEL] key.
  3. While holding [DEL], reinsert the AAA battery and then
  4. turn the calculator on.
  5. The calculator should display "Waiting...Please install calculator software now".
  6. Connect the TI Connectivity cable between the computer and the calculator.
  7. Click on Start >> Programs >> TI Tools >> TI Connect >> TI OS Downloader.
  8. Follow the on-screen directions to reinstall the calculator's OS.
If the message "Error! Press any key to turn unit off. Then turn unit back on." appears on the graphing calculator, quickly, remove one battery from the calculator and reinstall it while the transfer is taking place.

You have several ways to connect the calculator
  • Serial Black cable that used to ship with the TI 83 Plus. It connects to a serial port on a computer and to the I/O port on the calculator. It requires the Graph Link software available on the TI web site (Downloads, Software and Apps, Connectivity)
  • USB Silver Link cable. It connects a USB port on the computer to the the I/O port on the calculator. It requires the TI connectivity software, also available on the TI Web site.
  • A USB mini A to mini B cable to connect two units.
  • An I/O cable to connect two calculators through their I/O ports.

My TI 83 Plus won't work


TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen when the batteries are changed so that it appears as if the calculator isn't turning on. Turn the calculator on (or at least press the ON key). Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds and see whether the screen becomes legible.
