I've searched the internet, how to put on games for my TI-89 Titanium, and I think I got the right programes. But when I try to play my games on the calculator, it might say "Illegal instruction" or something like "Program dosent work".
What am I doing wrong? I have chosen the program in the VAR-LINK menu, pressed enter at HOME, and ended the parantese with ')'
I would appreaciate if one of you 'genious' could give me a link, or full description on how to make the games work(:
If it's a newer OS some commands may have changes and those games would no longer work... Since games don't get updated often I cannot say where you can go to find games that will work... but ticalc.org has the best archive of information/game/programs for everything...

Press left and right arrow and 2nd keys simultaneosly, hold it and then press ON. Release all keys at the same time and you will reset TI 89 Titanium. Or, type diamond key simultaneosly with + or - (plus or minus) key to resolve dark screen.
If you connect calculator to computer using Ti connect device explorer you might be able to see what files are on the calculator. I don't know if you downloaded from the web but, 3rd party programs and shells tent to miss up the calculator. This would able you to delete out possible problems which could be re installed later.
The only option or keys that will work is the ENTER key and the arrow keys. Try to get your arrow key to work by arrowing down and hit enter hopefully change you to something different. Next, if at all possible can you hit the MODE key or get into the mode. If you get into the MODE select F3 and then arrow down twice or all the way to the bottom and at APPS Desktop select 1:OFF and then hit the ENTER key. Next, What I really think you need to do is reinstall the Ti 89 OS software. To do so you would need to connect to your computer or another Ti 89 Titanium to your Ti 89 Titanium. If you have Ti connect computer software (from the Ti site) connected to your Ti 89 Titanium it might help you more in troubleshooting any further problems too. You might be able to delete corrupt files that would free your calculator up and start running better.
Please don't get your hopes up, but perhaps something in the following few suggestions will work:
For the TI-89 Family, TI-92 Family, and Voyage™ 200:
Adjust the contrast by pressing and releasing the Diamond Key key followed by pressing and releasing the [+] key; repeat as necessary. To adjust or lighten the display, use the [-] key.
Users of the TI-89 Titanium or Voyage 200 should see the following case before performing the following reset procedure to prevent the loss of valuable Apps. On the TI-92 family or Voyage 200, hold the [2nd] key and the [hand] key, then press and release the [on] key. On the TI-89 family, press and hold the [2nd] key, left arrow, and right arrow; then press and release the [on] key. This should reinitialize the operating system, in which you should see a progress bar filling on the screen.
Remove one of the AAA or AA batteries. Press and hold the [APPS] key, and while holding the [APPS] key, replace the battery and turn the unit on. TI-89, 92 Plus, or Voyage 200 users should see "Press I to install code...", and should press the  key. The calculator should then say, "Waiting to receive...". TI-89 Titanium users should see "Waiting to receive..." or "Waiting to received OS...". You will need to restore the calculator's operating system.
To reinstall the Calculator's operating system, take a look at the following TI site.
I was able to fix the problem nut it requires several steps and only offers a temporary fix (untill the calculator is reset then it needs to be done again).
1. Press F5, then Dimond (symbol on buttion) then "Clear"
2. Press "alpha" then "S"
3. Press "0" dont mess with anything else here
4. Press "2nd" then "Quit"
Now you can turn it off but are missing the bottom text (rad,auto, etc...) to fix
6. Press "Mode" change radian to degree then "enter"
Now the text is displayed showing the mode.
7. Set the mode back to radian by reversing step 6.
Thats it I dont know how to get the bottom line back though...
