Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Silver Edition Graphic Calculator
Ok I had this problem all of a sudden and I kinda flipped out, but...I DID FIND A WAY TO FIX IT, all i was hit it against my pillow and bed for like 5 secs and it suddenly worked again. lol its a miracle! But try it and u never know..it worked for me.
( O yea, make sure its on the "Ram Cleared" screen, then beat it against your bed or something soft)

I had the same problem. I went to TI's website and snooped around for about a half an hour and then found this tip: Press and hold the "clear" button. Remove one of the AAA batteries and then re-install. Release the "clear" button and turn on the calculator. TA-DA!!! This worked for me. My calculator is back in action.

I was getting the same REM CLEARED code, but it did work if I pushed the button long enough. I tried the whole "hit it against something soft" solution, and it worked. After I slammed it on my couch it said "Done" and it was back to normal! HA HA....

When you are at school and you get your calculator and it freezes hit you calculator softly on the screen and it works for a while if it keeps happening keep hiatting it ( DO NOT HIT IT REALLY HARD!!!)

Take it easy man, this problem is easy to solve, open the battery's lid and you will see a Screw open the screw and take out the small battery that inside and returned back. it will help you.

it happened to me, too. turns out that when batteries fall out, temperature changes, etc. the RAM (random-access memory) clears. if you have any saved programs, you can archive them by pressing [2nd] + 2 7 . Press [ENTER] next to every program you want to archive (a little star will appear)and you won't lose it next time.
you can't use archived programs; they're just saved so that when RAm clears you won't lose any archived info. you can actually archive lots of suff.
to use your program, follow the same key sequence, the star will disappear, and you can use it again.
if you don't have any programs that you want to keep, well i just wasted my time. :)

DOWN LOAD THE TI PROGRAM FORM CD OR WEBSITE... CONNECT THE CCALCULATOR TO YOUR COMPUTER.. LOOK FOR UPDATES.. THEY WILL DOWNLOAD TO A FOLDER...RIGHT CLICK TO THE FILE "SEND TO IT DEVICE" AND WAIT... I DOWNLOADED "TI84PLUS_OS" OPERATING SYSTEM

The best way is to call TI tech support.

Just wait. my ti84 froze for about 20 hours. then we tried the method suggested by the instruction booklet, the one where you take out all the batteries and hold the 'on' button for 10 seconds+ and then reinstall the batteries. we did this repeatedly and when it didn't work, we went and got new batteries but when we came back it just started working again.
