Question about Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus Silver Edition Calculator

2 Answers

TI-83 silver edition programs lost

We have changed both the AA and lithium batteries (not at the same time), and each time I turn on the calculator I get the following messages: "Waiting...please install calculator software now." or "Error! Press any key to turn unit off. Then turn unit back on." But if I turn it off, it will not come back on. It only comes back on with these messages after I take out and reinstall the AA batteries. Please help. Thanks, Kim.

You need to reinstall the OS software, you will need a cable and download it off of the website

My ti 83 will turn on when i press the clear thing but when i try to put something in nothing happens


Hi imagenius1,

You need to free up some memory. Try clearing your RAM memory. Your calculator should operate properly afterward.

Press [2nd] [MEM] [7] [1] [2]

If the steps above did not reset the memory to your Ti 83 family calculator try the procedures below.

Please be prepared to re-install the calculator's OS if you run through this process.

If you have a straight Ti 83 without the Plus or, Silver Edition label goto (Procedure 2) below. If your Ti calculator is a Ti 83 Plus or better goto (Procedure 1).


(Procedure 1).

  1. Try a new set of AAA batteries.

  2. Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold the [CLEAR] key. While holding [CLEAR], reinsert the AAA battery and then turn the calculator on. The calculator should display the message "RAM Cleared". Release the [CLEAR] key and, then press [CLEAR] one more time to remove the message.

  1. 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". Follow the instructions for the TI-83 family or TI-84 Plus family to reinstall the calculator operating system.



  2. Steps to re-installing the operating system:
    ~Connect the TI Connectivity cable between the PC and the calculator.
    ~Click on Start >> Programs >> TI Tools >> TI Connect >> TI OSDownloader
    ~Follow the on-screen directions to reinstall the calculator's OS. If you could not install the new OS on your calculator goto step 4.


  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.

  4. If the above process did not reset your calculator. Try re-doing (Procedure 1) and, extend the time in step 4, by 5 minutes to 10 minutes before you put all the batteries back in the calculator.

(Procedure 2).


For a straight Ti 83 without the Plus or, Silver Edition label try the procedure below.


  1. Try a new set of AAA batteries.



  2. Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold the [ON] key for 20 seconds. Reinsert the AAA battery and then turn the calculator on.

My ti 83 calculator turns on but nothing shows


TI calculators have an annoying habit of dimming the screen, especially 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.

Ti-83 plus silver edition. calc won't turn on.


Hello,
Well, if screen shows the RAM CLEARED message, that means your calculator is working. Just press the [CLEAR] key, message will be erased and you are ready to crunch numbers.

Hope it helps.

The calculator will not turn on a TI 83 plus, batteries changed


You say you changed the batteries. Did you also change the back up battery? It's located in a little door with a screw right above the AAA batteries.

My students have come to me many times and have said that their calculator will not turn on. Most times it is that the contrast on the screen has been turned down and the calculator is turning on but the screen is too dim to see that it's on.

To check your contrast, turn the calculator on, press the 2nd key and the up arrow. This is how you darken the screen. You lighten the screen the same way but you use the down arrow instead.

TI-83 Plus silver edition won't turn on.


the screen may be at the lowest dim setting, try turning it on, then pressing the 2nd key and then hold the up key and see if anything appears, if not let me know and I will try to figure out something else, I own a 83, 84, and 89 so it shouldn't be too hard to figure out

Ti-83 plus


try changing the back up battery also. This generally helps. The next time you change your batteries, change them one at a time. don't take them all out at once. This won't happen if you do it like that.
