Question about Texas Instruments TI-84 Plus Calculator

1 Answer

TI-84 Plus calculator goes on, but says "RAM cleared". Then, the cursor does not flash, and I have to push the buttons for a long time to get anything on the screen. Also, if I push the same button more than once, the calculator does not recognise the second, third etc entry. How to fix this? I've tried to clear all the memory, also manually.

Read about the nature of the cursor. It can be on Insert or overwrite. If the cursor is full square and flashing, that mean the memory register for the input line is full and you cannot input anymore strokes.

SOURCE: how to restore applications on TI-84 Plus Calculator

Go onto www.education.ti.com, find the downloads column, and click on apps and operating systems. Then you can click on the different lists and find out which apps you accidentally deleted. You do this by (after clicking on it) looking under the "Pre-Loaded On" column. If you find the name of your calculator there, this is one application that was deleted. Hope this helps!

SOURCE: RAM Cleared

This is kinda a weird situation. Because it's usually the other way around. Your ram will clear if your calculator is frozen. So take out all 5 batteries from the back. Even the back up battery. Then reset it again. 2nd then + then 7 then 1 Then 2. Good luck.

SOURCE: Find the antilog on the TI-84 Plus for finding pH in chemistry problems

I'm not specifically familiar with the TI83 or TI84 but I've used a lot of TI calculators in my time, so I'll give it a try. If your trying to find the antilog of a number in base 10 enter the number and hit the (10 to the X) button. If you're trying to find the antilog of a number in in base e (natural log), enter the number and hit the (e to the X) button.

Why is my calculator frozen?


Is the cursor checkered? If so, there is no more space on the entry line. Use the DEL key to shorten it or clear it. Clear the RAM also.

If your calculator display the checkered cursor it means that the memory is full and you cannot type in anything. Clear the memory by resetting the calculator.
Press [2nd][Mem] then select [7:Reset]
Under the first Menu RAM select 1:RAM then 2: reset

My TI-84 cursor will not allow me to type anything


If the cursor is not allowing you to type anything that means either the calculator available memory is full or that you have exceeded the number of characters in a single command.
Clear calculator memory or just clear all entries (history) or split a complicated command into multiple shorter commands.

The calculator will not work and won't let me type anything. The only thing on the screen is a cursor and it is not blinking.


Hi,
What kind of cursor? Is it checkered? If it is the memory is full that is why you cannot type anything anymore.
  1. Delete games,
  2. clear all lists [2nd][MEM][4:ClrAllLists][ENTER.]
  3. Clear entries [2nd][MEM][3:Clear Entries][ENTER.]
  4. If that is not enough reset Ram [2nd][MEM][7:Reset][1:All Ram] [2:Reset][ENTER]. Clear the Ram Cleared message.
Hope it helps

TI 84 plus calculator refuses to graph more than one function


Hello,
Please, read the following, even if you already know some of its contents.
  1. Once you enter an equation, the corresponding equal sign is highlighted by default.
  2. Before you draw the 2 graphs, move the cursor to Y3 or Y4 and verify that the = signs for Y1 and Y2 remain highlighted.
  3. If one is not highlighted, move the cursor on it and press ENTER.
  4. If you still have problem, press [2nd][STATPLOTS][4: PlotsOff] [ENTER].
  5. Command PlotsOff echoes on main screen.
  6. Press [ENTER], screen displays Done.
  7. Restart the graphing procedure.
  8. If all else fails, just reset the RAM by pressing [2nd][MEM][7:Reset][1:All RAM][2:Reset], press [CLEAR] to clear the message.
You should make it a habit to clear the RAM every time you start a new type of problem.

Hope it helps.

RAM CLEARED?


Hello,
The most likely reason is that the backup battery is drained. Change the backup battery. When you get the Ram Cleared message, just press [CLEAR] to erase the message and start using the calculator.
Hope it helps.
