You can send the os by pressing 2nd link and then scrolling down to send os. For the guest i suggest just taking the batteries out and holding del for 30 seconds and reinstal the os

  12. If you do not have an active Internet connection, run the TIConnect software.
  13. Connect calculator and computer. Turn calculator ON
  14. Drag and drop the OS which you downloaded on the TIConnect main window.
  15. The software will attempt to install the OS,
If for some reason this does not work, you can transfer the OS of a working calculator. You will need a cal-to-calc USB miniA to miniB cable or a calc-to-cal I/O cable.

TI 84 won't turn on. New batteries installed. TI Connect recognizes device and I installed new OS. Brightness is not the issue. Any suggestions? This is one of student's calculators. Thank you.

TI-83 Calculator RAM cleared


Hello,
To clear the message press [CLEAR]
If calculator shows message after you turn it [ON], it may be due to drained backup battery. If you have to change it make sure you have main batteries in and in good state, and installed.

If calculator appears frozen, press [2nd] [QUIT] to interrupt what it is doing.

I see you do not have the latest ROM (OS). You should download the latest ROM (1.19) and install it.

Use the education.ti.com link to download the TIConnect software. Install it on your computer. Run the TIConnect software. Connect the calculator to a computer (USB cable or TISilverLink cable or TI Graphlink black cable). Press the ON button, do not worry if you do not see anything on screen (contrast may be too light).
In TIConnect main window, click the TI Device info button. The software will try to detect the calculator. If the answer is NOT FOUND on any of the ports, click the communication settings at the bottom of the window.
Select Device: enter you calculator model
Select Cable: SilverLink, USB,
Select port : USB1 or COMx
and click OK. The TI connect software will give you some messages if communications with calculator cannot be established.

If you establish communications with the calculator, press the Update button in TIConnect main window. Install OS directly to the calculator. You may update other installed applications.
If you cannot communicate with calculator with the computer try to update by cal-to-calc connection with a working calculator/


Hope it helps.
