Sounds like your backup battery is dead.. and maybe the clear or del key stuck down as either way it could wipe the program.. The solution i think is to hit the TI website and get the software reload and directions to reload it from there.

My TI-84 reads RAM cleared how can i fix this?


Hello.

Means the memory is full and your TI needs to be reset:

There should be a Reset button (press) or a pinhole (push an opened paperclip in the hole and release).

Hope this helps.

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...


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 is not 1.19.

I have a TI 84 plus silver edition. Won't turn


The problem may be due a screen that is too light to see anything on it. Adjust the screen darkness.
  1. Press [2nd] key and release it.
  2. Press and HOLD the [UpArrow] to draken screen.
  3. Release the [UpArrow] when screen is dark enough.
You can also connect it to the computer to see if TI Connect finds it. If it does, update the OS to version 2.53MP.

You change the backup battery if the calculator tells you RAM CLEARED each time you turn it ON.

TI-84 Calculator does not turn on.


Hi,
The applications that run on the TI84Plus Sliver Edition run without a hitch on the TI84Plus and also on the TI83Plus. The only major difference between the 84Plus and the 84Plus SE is the amount of flash memory.
Here is what I would suggest to you.
  1. Replace the main batteries with fresh ones.
  2. Adjust the screen contrast: a. Press [2nd] key and release it. b. Press and HOLD [UpArrow] to darken or [DownArrow] to lighten screen.
  3. Clear the calculator Ram. Usually it is cleared if the calculator is left without main batteries for a while,but you never know.
  4. To clear the Ram, press [2nd][MEM][7:Reset][1:All Ram][2:Reset]. Press [CLEAR] to erase the "Ram Cleared" message.
  5. Go to the education.ti.com, and download the TI Connect software, if you do not have it already.
  6. Install it on the computer and run the program.
  7. Then connect the calculator to the computer using the TISilver Link USB cable or the Standard USB to mini B cable (if you have one).
  8. Turn you calculator ON
  9. In the TI connect program window, press the Updates button.
  10. The TI connect should recognize you calculator and ask you what to download.
  11. At first select to download the latest OS (version 2.43 at this time).
  12. Later you can click the Updates button and select the Latest version of the applications installed on calculator.
If you calculator does not suffer from hardware problems, your calculator should be restored to health.

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.

TI-84 Calc is FROZEN


I'd try hooking it to the computer using ti connect explorer and see if deleting the programs there would help. I had a calculator that did the same thing and never did fix it. But if your memory can be delete and reinstalled it might work.

Usually this means that you need new batteries.

TI-84 with blank screen


Yes there is, but you need a screwdriver to get at it... make sure the batteries are in the right way first, though.
