You must have one of the newer OS versions (MP 2.53 and higher). You don't have anything under F5.

SOURCE: ti 84 plus silver edition language change

The easiest way to fix this is through the Apps menu. Hit the apps key, then scroll down until you see any language(espanol, Deutsch, etc.). It should give you the option of switching to either that language or restoring to English. I just tried this on a calculator that was set to German. I hit Apps and scrolled down until I recognized the option for Spanish, and it still worked. It let me switch back to English.
Hope this works for you.

That actually is a result of water damage. You probably need to replace it, or see about getting it taken apart and dried if the water damage was recent. DO NOT take it apart yourself. Go somewhere and ask if that is possible.

SOURCE: 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.

How to update older ti-84 plus

The function keys originally have twp functions: One function accessed by pressing a function key directly, the other by first pressing the 2nd key then the function key.
With the newer operating systems, there is a third function associated with the function keys F1.F2,F3 and F4, but not F5 nor F6. This third function is revealed after you press the ALPHA key.

Alpha key not recognized when pushed

When the ALPHA key is pushed the cursor shows an A. Press one of the keys that has the same color as the ALPHA key (A,B,C,...X,Y,Z).
If you have the MathPrint OS, the ALPHA F1/F2/F3/F4 sequence activates shortcuts to newe features (fractions, logab, sums etc..)

I can't see the shortcut menus. When I press ALPHA F1, I get the Y= menu. The ALPHA key is not broken, because ALPHA MATH produces an A as it is supposed to. I've hit 2ND-QUIT and CLEAR several...

I just had this problem: shortcut menus used to work, but stopped, with TI Version 2.55 MP. I discovered that running the preloaded app PlySmlt2 (others work, too) and quitting it fixed the problem, but that later running a non-TI app caused the problem again. So the non-TI app may be misbehaving, as suggested in this TI knowledge base article.

Press APPS. Scroll up or down to reach Inequalz and press ENTER. The inequalz application will know control function graphing. Open the Y= editor to enter at least two inequalities . Use the tabs at the bottom to type in the relational operators. You will have to press [ALPHA] followed by [F1], or [F2], etc

Press [ALPHA][F1 or F2] to activate the [SHADES] tab. This open up the following screen.

On this screen you can choose the type of shading 1: Intersection of the two regions ( the part of the plane that satisfies both inequalities, 2 the union of the two regions or 3 the original shading (as compared to choice 2). Selecting option 1:intersection gives you the following screen.

If you press the [ALPHA][F5] keys you have the HELP ? screen below.

If you press the [ALPHA] [F3] keys you get a Point of Interest (You should consult the manual for the Inequalz application for more details.
By pressing the TRACE button (not ALPHA F4) and the left or right arrows you you can follow the graph of one of the functions. You jump to the other functions by pressing the Up or Down arrows.

To get the manual for Inequalz go to the and download it.

My son has a TI-84 Plus calculator and it is completely frozen. There is a message on the screen that reads " RAM cleared". Below that message it says "Press ALPHA F1-F4 to locate shortcut menus" but it...

The calculator OS has been upgraded to the version 2.53 MP.
For this version, whenever you remove batteries (or replace them) and turn calculator ON, you are reminded to Press [ALPHA][F1-F4] to locate Shortcuts Menu.
The calculator also asks the user to press either
[1:Do NOT show Again]

Here is what these cryptic messages mean.

Certain functions implemented on the new OS are available by pressing the [ALPHA] key followed by F1, F2, F3 or F4.
Since you may forget how to get to them, the calculator gently reminds you that there are other functions accessed only by pressing the [ALPHA] key.
It also gives you the option to flash the reminder every time the calculator memory is reset (CONTINUE) or NOT to SHOW the REMINDER again.

Usually after the RAM cleared message, press [2:Continue] or any other key but [1: ] to keep being reminded how to access the new functions.
Once a key is pressed the screen is cleared and you have the solid blinking cursor.
