SOURCE: TI-82 Screen Not Working or Black

Try a hard reset. Take out all the batteries, and while putting them back in, hold down the "DEL" key. Then, turn it back on and you can adjust the contrast by pressing the "2nd" key and the down arrow at the same time. I just got this info. online and it finally worked for me...good luck!

SOURCE: No decimal display on TI BA-II calculator

Your BA II PLUS stores numeric values internally to an accuracy of 13 digits. However, the numbers it displays depends on the number of decimal places to which you have it set (choice of 0–9 or floating decimal). To set the number of decimal places displayed to three: hit [2ND][FORMAT][3][ENTER]This setting also continues indefinitely (even though the calculator is turned off and on) until it is changed.

How to factor


The TI 86 calculator does not manipulate algebraic expressions. If does not have a Computer Algebra System or CAS. Try the TI 89 Titanium, TI92/92PLUS, Voyage 200 PLT, TI Nspire CAS, TI Nspire CX CAS. In Casios you have the ClassPad series (300, 300Plus, 330 Plus and the latest 400. The ClassPad 400 has a color screen. It is also orientable portrait or landscape. Other Casios are the Algebra FX 2 and 2, and the FX 9860 G Plus/ SD. In HP you have HP 50G, HP49C, HP49G+.

I can't get my TI-nspire calculator to give me the answer in anything but decimals, for example the sin(pi/4) should be something like radical 2 / 2 but instead i get .7 ??? help


The TI Nspire has two calculation modes: Auto and Approximate. In Auto mode the calculator will attempt to do exact calculations. If that is not possible then the results are displayed as decimals. The non CAS version does not do symbolic manipulations, only the CAS version can do that.
However if you are actually using the CAS calculator, then go to the settings ( Settings>General ) and change the settings for the calculatoion mode to EXACT. The Non Cas does not have that third choice.

I am going to be getting a tinspire and I was wondering how you switch from ti-nspire mode to the ti-84 mode?


I am going to assume that you are buying the non-cas version as the Cas or computer algebra version of the nspire doesn't support the ti-nspire mode.

The tinspire will come with two key-boards. One will be the nspire keyboard, the other the ti-84 board. To switch between them there is a small toggle on the back of the calculator. Push the switch and the keyboard will pop out. Put the ti-84 keyboard in and then press the on button!

My TI Nspie CAS calculator is restarting frequently


Hello,
If you remove battery door, the TINspire CAS cannot be turned ON.
You may try to reset the unit by pressing the reset button on the back of the unit. If that does not solve the problem, you may try to reinstall or update the OS.

Anyway, here is what the Texas Instruments Knowledge Base has to say about reinstalling the OS. Hope it helps.

What steps are required to reinstall the TI-Nspire family operating system?

To reload the device’s OS using a computer with TI-Nspire Computer Link:
• Connect the TI-Nspire device (with the Nspire keypad) to the computer using the USB Standard A to Mini B cable.
• Open the TI-Nspire Computer Link software. The select device dialog should appear, and detect the device.
• Either drag the OS file (available in the ‘downloads’ area at education.ti.com) onto the TI-Nspire File Browser portion of the window, or click Tools -> Install OS.
To reload the device’s OS using another TI-Nspire or TI-Nspire CAS device:
• Connect the two devices using the USB Mini A to Mini B cable. The end marked A should be inserted into the sending unit, while the end marked B should be inserted into the receiving unit.
• On the sending unit, access the document chooser by pressing [Home] [7]. Once in the document chooser, press [Menu] and choose 9:Send OS…
NOTE: Users can only send an OS to a unit of the same model. Users cannot send an OS from a TI-Nspire to a TI-Nspire CAS.
Please see the TI-Nspire guidebooks for additional information.
