Hi mixedgamer12,
The process below should reset your Ti84 plus calculator. If you do this process your RAM memory will be cleared and, you will have to re-install the Ti84 plus calculator's OS.

  1. 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.
  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". Follow the instructions for the
    TI-83 family or TI-84 Plus family to reinstall the calculator operating system in step 3. If the calculator still won't turn on connect the calculator to the computer and, open Ti Connect. Next, open Device Explorer. Is the calculator asking to be installed? Can you go into Device Explorer?
  3. Steps to re-installing the operating system:

    ~Connect the TI Connectivity cable between the PC and the calculator if you haven't already.
    ~Click on Start >> Programs >> TI Tools >> TI Connect >> TI OSDownloader
    ~Follow the on-screen directions to reinstall the calculator's OS. When or, if the calculator install the fresh OS goto step 4.

  4. 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.

  5. If the above process did not work to turn your calculator on, try re-doing the above process. Next time extend the time in step 4 by 5 minutes to 10 minutes before you put all the batteries back in the calculator.

    You can get the latest copy of Ti84 Plus 2.55v. MP OS, by going to my link below. Just follow Procedure 1. Plus a lot of other useful information about Ti Connect and, Windows OS. The Ti OSDownloader sometimes does not give you the latest OS copy but, I will.

Display has gone on my TI-84 plus silver edition calculator, I have replaced the batteries is there another fix?


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.

I have a ti 84 plus silver edition calculator and the screen went black. how do i fix this


There are two possibilities:

1) Your screen may have been physically damaged. This is not repairable.

2) The second possibility is the screen contrast is turned too high. You can adjust the screen contrast by pressing either 2nd and then the up and down keys or Alpha and the up and down keys, depending on your model. You will need to do this repeatedly to notice a change.

Turn the calculator on. Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the down-arrow key for a few seconds until the screen lightens.

Obviously, if you've gone too far, press and release the 2ND key, then press and hold the up-arrow key.

Won't stay on.


have you tried manually resetting like the manual suggests? Take out the AAA's only, hold the ON button for 10 seconds and then re-install the batteries and turn it on. If that doesn't work, I have no other suggestions.
