Hi yeager anna,

Since the calculator operates slowly even after the RAM has been cleared, I'd say, "Your OS must be corrupt." You need to re-install the Ti 84 Plus OS, ASAP!!! You can fix this problem by installing the newest Ti 84 Plus 2.55v. MP OS, operating system. Use fresh batteries when installing the new OS. If you need additional instructions your welcome to read my Ti 84 Plus solutions. I pretty much tell how you can install the new OS with another Ti 84 Plus calculator or, connecting the computer to the calculator to install the new OS. You can view my solution to install OS by clicking, "Ti 84 Plus OS installation." Just stroll down to oneplusgh's solution at that posting and, I cover a lot of topics you may need advice on to install the new OS.

If you need instructions to downloading and installing TI Connect on a XP or, Mac computer click, "TI Connect on a XP or Mac computer." I realize this posting was for a later OS but, this link will take you to the latest TI Connect software and, newest OS too. Once you get the TI Connect software installed come back to this posting and, follow the instructions above at "Ti 84 Plus OS installation."

If you need instructions to downloading and installing TI Connect on a Windows 7 computer click, "TI Connect on a Windows 7 computer." Just follow Procedure 3. You can also get instructions at this link on how to install the Ti driver to link computer and calculator. I realize this link instructions were for a Ti 89 calculator but, they will work for a Ti 84 Plus too. Once you get the TI Connect software installed come back to this posting and, follow the instructions above at "Ti 84 Plus OS installation."

My instructions is geared to save you a lot of hardship. No matter if your having to install Ti Connect or, the newest OS for your calculator. I do not use TI OSDownloader because, TI OSDownloader might not give you the newest OS for your calculator. My instructions will. If you have any questions just post a comment and, I'll respond quickly.

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: Sceen keeps saying RAM cleared even when I didn't clear it.

There is a small round battery under a small rectangular cover just above the other triple A batteries. It has most likely gone flat. try replacing it, then see if it works properly.

SOURCE: 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.

Every few hours, all of my programs disappear on my calculator and this is preceeded by a message that says, "RAM CLEARED"


Try changing the batteries.
First replace the main AAA batteries and see if the problem persists. If it does, the backup battery is depleted and it must be replaced. When you replace the backup battery, the main batteries must be installed in the calculator otherwisw you may lose your programs.

I just replaced the batteries. I get the message "RAM Cleared" and then nothing much happens.


This happens when you remove the batteries or replace them. It is just letting you know that the RAM was cleared while the batteries were out. The RAM stores little things throughout your calculator, not a big deal for it to be cleared. The message is just letting you know, it isn't anything to worry about. You should be able to continue using your calculator as normal.

My ti-84 plus it does not respond to the function + or - OR other function, & it come up to display very slow ,slow. thanks


Hi xvbanh,

You need to free up some memory. Try clearing your RAM. Your calculator should operate properly afterward.

Go to [2nd] [MEM] [7] [1] [2]

If your calculator still won't let you delete the RAM memory try the procedure below.

Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold the [CLEAR] key. While holding [CLEAR],
reinsert the AAA battery and then turn the calculator on. The calculator should display the
message "RAM Cleared". Release the [CLEAR] key and then press it one more time to remove the message.

When replaced batteries and turned on it said "RAM CLEARED" now its running extremely slow. Rest ram default - no help What is the problem and what can be done to speed it up


If you change batteries you get RAM Cleared Message especially if Button Cell backup battery is depleted or very weak.
If calculator seems sluggish and runs very slowly, some foreign material may be stuck in IO port. Blow on the port with compressed air in order to dislodge the foreign material: A piece of pencil lead (graphite) may be the reason, because graphite is an electrical conductor and somewhat shorts the port.

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.

When i turned it on, the Ti said that all my RAM memory was cleared and now it is runing slow


Hello,

Don't worry about the quickness of the calculator because it takes a lot more time for the average human to key in the intended operations (without errors) than to have the result displayed.

You should try to calculate with pen and pencil the factorial of 69 ( 69! =the product of all the integers from 1 to 69), the largest factorial than the calculator can calculate. In a fraction of a second the calculator displays 1.197857E99.

Enjoy your calculator, and I say that tongue in cheek, if you keep complaining about how slow it is, I will send you a slide rule, or a table of logarithms. That will be fun.

Hope it cleared the misconception.

Sloooooow....


Press the [ON] and [CLEAR] keys at the same time to reset the calculator. It may fix the problem. If it does not, change battery (if battery powered, not solar).
