That means that you know your calc crashed. This can be caused by taking out the batteries durring running time, happened just randomly. Well nothing to fear just press clear and it should go away but if it stays on that screen you have problems and is best to try some of these methods. Take out all the bateries and press and hold the on button for 30 seconds. Put the batteries back in and it should have reset. Warning you should archive everything incase this happens. To archive go to 2nd mem and hit enter to put a astrick next to the app (meaning archived)

SOURCE: When I turn on the Ti 83 plus, it says "ram cleared"

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. :)

Hello,
Well, if screen shows the RAM CLEARED message, that means your calculator is working. Just press the [CLEAR] key, message will be erased and you are ready to crunch numbers.

Hope it helps.

How can i fix the message om the TI-83 RAM Cleared?


It is possible that the backup battery is depleted and cannot keep the RAM refreshed when the calculator is turned off. I suggest you change the backup battery immediately.

There's something wrong with my TI-83. When I'm typing up an equation it will randomly shut off. And when it's on it will have shown that the RAM was cleared. Now it sometimes takes like 5 presses of the...


Have you tried changing the batteries? I'd try that first thing. From your description, the problem sounds like you have low batteries. The RAM shouldn't clear itself when you turn the calculator on unless you tried to turn it on when the calculator didn't have any juice. The TI-83 has four AAA batteries and one CR1616 battery it uses for memory backup. The CR1616 isn't enough to power the calculator, just enough to keep your calculator from losing its RAM contents while the primary batteries are out. If you try to power the calculator on without primary batteries, the backup fails. However, the TI-8x line is usually pretty good about warning you when the batteries are low by displaying a big warning message when you turn it on about the batteries being low and a recommended change of batteries. It might not, though, so you really can't be sure until you try a fresh set of batteries. Good luck!

TI-83 Plus ram cleared message when turned on


It calculator tells you Ram Cleared each time you turn it on, the most likely reason is that the backup battery is depleted. Its role is to keep the memory modules electrically refreshed when calculator is turned off. If the backup battery is dead, the memory is erased when you turn calculator OFF. Main batteries no longer supply power and the contents of the memory are cleared.
  1. Check that main batteries are good and inserted in calculator.
  2. Turn calculator OFF.
  3. Replace the backup battery.
  4. Turn calculator ON.
  5. Press the [CLEAR] key to erase the "Ram Cleared" message.

I don't have the book and I don't know how to shut it off...TI-83


Sorry, but you cannot. That is the cursor, and it is equivalent to the cursor you see on your computer when typing text. You can change the resolution of the screen by pressing 2ND then the up and down keys, but this will change the resolution of EVERYTHING that is on the screen, not just the cursor.

TI-83 Plus Silver Edition problem


These instructions are from education.ti.org, and worked for me.

1) Take out one of the AAA batteries
2) Hold down the CLEAR button
3) Put the AAA battery back in while still holding down the CLEAR button
4) Let go of the CLEAR button and turn the calculator ON
5) Press CLEAR to get rid of the error message.

Then you should be good! All the applications on my calculator were still intact, so despite the error message, the RAM was never actually cleared.

Random characters lines and pixels


I've had a similar problem in the past with my TI-86. It still happens sometimes when I don't use it for a while. To fix it, all I did was set the screen to its darkest setting and left it on for 10 minutes (keep it from turning itself off, by pushing buttons every few minutes.) It works great, and the calculator is fine unless you leave it unused for a month or so. A similar solution may work for you.
