Press and hold the 2ND, left-arrow, and right-arrow keys. Press and release the ON key. Does this do anything?

Hi,

If your TI-89 is frozen then you have to reset the RAM in it.

Reset steps:
1)Clean the batteries and place is perfectly.
2)Press and hold left arrow, right arrow, and 2nd keys.(simultaneously)
3)Press and release the On key.

If not solved try this and check:
Remove one of the four AAA batteries. Press and hold the ) and (-) keys while replacing the battery. Continue to hold both the two keys for five seconds.

If not solved try this and check:
Press ON key turn on the TI-89. Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds and Check screen is showing up.

post a comment for further assistance.
Thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Push the buttons LEFT-RIGHT-SHIFT-ON at the same time, and this will probably reset your calculator if you're using DoorsOS. If you're not using DoorsOS or if this doesn't work, a manual method of resetting your calculator that always works (except for problems with the Flash ROM that could potentially be caused by programs that write to the Flash ROM such as HW2Patch, MaxMem, and TIBReceiver) is to take out a battery and while putting it back in, hold the (-) and ) buttons. It will then reset and you can adjust the contrast again.

Let me know if this does not work
Thanks
Tim

    Did you attempt the fixes I suggested in my first post? I was expecting you to reply so I could further help you but it looks like you already rated my answer, so I unfortunately can't help further. Just let me know if you at least tried what I suggested so other experts don't waste time recommending the same methods.

Hello,

I think the panel of your device need to be service, i will advice you lose all the screws on the calculator from the back to access the panel, get a small brush and spirit to clean the panel of the calculator and leave to get dry, ensure you dont soak the panel with the spirit, just light cleaningonce it is dry, couple back, see if that fix the problem.

Take care.

  1. Try a new set of batteries (including the backup battery).
  2. Adjust the contrast by pressing and releasing the Diamond Key key followed by pressing and releasing the [+] key; repeat as necessary. To adjust or lighten the display, use the [-] key.

I have a TI-89 Titanium but I wont turn on. I changed the internal battery and the normal battery (AAA) but still not working. Need help.


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 hold the diamond key, then press the + key repeatedly to see whether the screen darkens.

If this doesn't do it, please reply to this post and we can try other things, though they may cause the loss of the contents of memory.

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.

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.

Voyage 200 won't turn on


I've fixed my Voyage 200!! I fixed it using the 3rd solution listed below. I've placed them all in there in case the one I used din't work. The funny thing is the solutions listed weren't even for the Voyage 200. I mistakenly tried the wrong one, but it worked!! I've also posted some soultions listed for the Voyage 200 just incase the others don't work and the website I found these solutions can be found here. Good Luck!!

List of solutions that worked for me:

  1. Try a new set of batteries (including the backup battery).
  2. Adjust the contrast by pressing and releasing the [2nd] key followed by pressing and releasing the up arrow; repeat as necessary. To adjust or lighten the display, use the down arrow.
  3. 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 it one more time to remove the message. (worked for me!! Never actually said "Ram Cleared" just had a long box across the screen that filled up and POOF it was back!!)
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
Voyage Solutions:

For the TI-89 Family, TI-92 Family, and Voyage™ 200:
  1. Try a new set of batteries (including the backup battery).
  2. Adjust the contrast by pressing and releasing the Diamond Key key followed by pressing and releasing the [+] key; repeat as necessary. To adjust or lighten the display, use the [-] key.
  3. Users of the TI-89 Titanium or Voyage 200 should see the following case before performing the following reset procedure to prevent the loss of valuable Apps.
    On the TI-92 family or Voyage 200, hold the [2nd] key and the [hand] key, then press and release the [on] key. On the TI-89 family, press and hold the [2nd] key, left arrow, and right arrow; then press and release the [on] key. This should reinitialize the operating system, in which you should see a progress bar filling on the screen.
  4. Remove one of the AAA or AA batteries. Press and hold the [APPS] key, and while holding the [APPS] key, replace the battery and turn the unit on. TI-89, 92 Plus, or Voyage 200 users should see "Press I to install code...", and should press the [9] key. The calculator should then say, "Waiting to receive...". TI-89 Titanium users should see "Waiting to receive..." or "Waiting to received OS...". You will need to restore the calculator's operating system.

To reinstall the Calculator's operating system, take a look at the following TI site.

http://epsstore.ti.com/OA_HTML/csksxvm.jsp?nSetNumber=12089

I would hunt around on the TI knowledge base to see if there are some more useful suggestions if nothing above works. If I find any more info that could be useful I will post it.
