Hi persaud sabr,

Make sure the batteries are in correctly? The batteries alternate negative/positive, positive/ negative and so on. The first time I put the batteries in, I didn't have them in correctly. I know if it happen to me anybody could make the same mistake. and of course the calculator will never come on if the batteries aren't in correctly.

The process below should reset your calculator.

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

Press and release the 2ND key. Press and hold the Up-arrow key for a few seconds. Now, Pressing the [2nd] key followed by pressing and releasing the up arrow; repeat as necessary. Is the screen showing any activity? If not continue the process.



  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. If calculator did not display the message try pressing and releasing the [2nd] key followed by pressing and releasing the up arrow for one second. goto step 2.
  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. If the calculator did not turn on connect the calculator to the computer and open Ti Connect. Next, open Device Explorer. Is the calculator asking to be installed? goto step 3.
  3. 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. 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.



If the above process did not work. Try re-doing the procedure and, extend the time in step 4 by 5 minutes to 10 minutes before you put all the batteries back in the calculator.

TI-83 have adjusted the brightness but can't type or see flashing indicator


If the screen is not busted, adjust the contrast without going all the way to totally dark or to totally blank. Calculators do occasionally become unusable (old age, mishandling).

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.


What do you mean by "changed the resolution"?

How do you do turn on diagnostics with a casio fx-9750g plus?


You don't do anything for the Casios.. If the correlation and determination coefficients have a meaning in the regression model (such as linear regression) they will be calculated and displayed automatically on the same screen where the regression equation is displayed. However if the regression model has no such coefficients nothing will be displayed.

Frozen, 'snowy' screen...HELP!!!


The only solution that I can think of that might work would be connecting the Ti to another Ti of similarly close models and use the "sendOS" function on the working one, this should reset the crapped one to a functioning setup.

This does require the special wire they have for connection 2 calculators together... probably can get it on ebay or something if you don't have it already and just borrow a friend calc in class or something...
