"variable or flash application in use"

First stop the application that is running [2nd][Quit] or [Escape]
From Home screen
[Apps][Data/Matrix Editor/][3:new] name the data set when asked.
A table is displayed Enter the values in list c1 and c2 You can rename the variables in header.
When finished press [F5:calc]
In calculation type right arrow select 5:linReg in front of x enter c1, in front of y enter c2 and [enter] to save. the equation shows when you press [ENTER]

When i do my integration

What are you trying to do? The syntax you use depend on what you want to achieve.
Indefinite integral : Integral( ln(x),x) gives the correct answer xln(x)-x
Definite integral : Integral(ln(x),x,1,2) gives the integral of ln(x) between x=1 and x=2
Definite integral between 1 and y : Integral (ln(x), x,1,y) gives the correct expression yln(y)-y +1

By inserting the =0 you are in fact assigning the result of the integration to value 0, and the calculator calculates the integral and assigns 0 to it. This is what my TIVoyage 200 PLT gives me:
{Integral((lnx),x,1) = 0.} returns {x.ln(x)-x+1=0}
which is an equation.

Cannot connect ti 89 to computer

Check to make sure TI-Connect is looking on the right port, whether USB or serial. If you have a serial cable, you might consider using Ti's Graph-Link software to connect. I have had trouble getting it to work right with TI-Connect. You can find Graph-Link on TI's Education site under Downloads > Connectivity Software. I personally prefer the free program TiLP, which runs on Windows, Mac, and Linux and supports whatever cable you want. Hope this helps!

TI 89 won't turn on

Try a hard reset if you're willing to sacrifice the contents of all RAM.

1. Make sure the batteries are installed correctly.
2. Press and hold the 2nd, Left, and Right keys.
3. Press and release the On key.

My Ti 89 won't turn

TI calculators have a habit of dimming the screen contrast 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 hold the diamond key and press the the + key to darken the screen. If you go too far, use the diamond and - keys to lighten the screen.

If this doesn't do it, please reply to this post and we can try more drastic measures, though they may cause the loss of memory.

I am trying to graph

Did you still need help with this? My suspicion is a missing multiplication sign. Sometimes you need to be very explicit in what you want the calculator to do. Have you tried sqroot(sin(2*theta)) explicitly putting the multiplication symbol in there? I think 2theta is interpreted as it's own variable name...

Just bought this Ti-89 and I can't graph a Diff

Even though implied multiplication is accepted generally by the calculator when it involves a number and variable, it leads to errors when it involves two sybmols,
xsin(x) is interpreted as a function called XSIN not X*SIN(X).
Suppose you have a function y1, function of t and you write ty1 the calculator will generate an undefined variable error: It reads ty1 as a variable.To prevent the error message you should write t*y1, showing the multiplication explicitly.
Similarly if you write y1'=0.001y1(100-t) the expression y1(100-t) is interpreted as a function call: the function y1 is called with argument 100-t. If it is what you want you should explicitly express the multiplication and wrtite y1'=0.001y1*(100-t).
