Every few hours, all of my programs disappear on my calculator and this is preceeded by a message that says, "RAM CLEARED"


Try changing the batteries.
First replace the main AAA batteries and see if the problem persists. If it does, the backup battery is depleted and it must be replaced. When you replace the backup battery, the main batteries must be installed in the calculator otherwisw you may lose your programs.

Screen says ram cleared


When the calculator is turned ON, power to refresh the RAM is supplied by the main batteries. However, when it is OFF, the RAM relies on the backup battery to keep itself refreshed.
If you get the RAM CLEARED message whenever you turn calculator ON, it most certainly is due to a depleted backup battery. You will have to replace the backup battery.

To avoid losing anything important from RAM (what do I say, you are already losing the contents of the RAM), make sure that main batteries are still good, then replace the backup battery.

You can verify the state of the main batteries in a battery tester or by connecting the calculator to the computer with TI USB Silver cable and TI Connect software. If you run into problem such as calculator not recognized it is most probably due to weak batteries.

When you connect it to computer try updating the OS if OS version to 2.53 MP or a more recent one..

The screen on my TI-83 Plus says, "RAM cleared" and won't do anything. It has the curser after I press "ON", but won't do anything else. I tried holding clear, holding ON, hitting it, etc. Can anyone...

TI-83 Plus ram cleared message when turned on


It calculator tells you Ram Cleared each time you turn it on, the most likely reason is that the backup battery is depleted. Its role is to keep the memory modules electrically refreshed when calculator is turned off. If the backup battery is dead, the memory is erased when you turn calculator OFF. Main batteries no longer supply power and the contents of the memory are cleared.
  1. Check that main batteries are good and inserted in calculator.
  2. Turn calculator OFF.
  3. Replace the backup battery.
  4. Turn calculator ON.
  5. Press the [CLEAR] key to erase the "Ram Cleared" message.

RAM cleared


Hi,
My first guess is that the main batteries and the backup battery are depleted. Change the main batteries first and adjust the screen :
  1. Press [2nd] key and release it.
  2. Press and hold UpArrow to darken screen, or DownArrow to lighten it.
Then replace the backup battery.

Hope it helps.

RAM CLEARED?


Hello,
The most likely reason is that the backup battery is drained. Change the backup battery. When you get the Ram Cleared message, just press [CLEAR] to erase the message and start using the calculator.
Hope it helps.

Loss of data when battery goes dead?


-are all pda's this way? All PocketPCs are this way. I don't own a P**m so I can't speak to them. -When the main battery depletes to the point where the unit shuts off how long do you have before data is lost? Until the backup battery dies. -Is the backup battery just used when changing main batteries or does it take over when the main battery goes dead? If so how long do you have before it is dead? I've never had it happen, so I cannot say how long, but if you continue to try to use the PDA on the backup battery it won't be long (minutes) if it even lets you do that. The backup is there to bridge over battery changes and to act as a safety net if you run the main batteries totally flat. -does the backup battery recharge or does it have to be replaced? Replace. -with a fully charged unit how long can it be left off before data is lost? Depends on the machine. Most of us leave the thing in the charger overnight every night, so this issue doesn't come up. You could try an experiment for 1, 2, 3 days, looking each day at the battery remaining and work up an estimate. I would expect maybe a week or more. Remember, even "off" the machine is still drawing power to maintain the RAM memory.
