Have you tried 2nd then down arrow. This adjusts the brightness of the screen. You may need to repeat it a few times (you must release the 2nd key, you cannot just hold it down and type the down arrow many times).

Conflicting app error on TI-84 plus silver edition.

When either of them is loaded in memory once, it remains there and takes over the graphing features of the calculator. If one is loaded in memory it must first be unloaded before you can use the other.
To recover the normal calculator behavior both must be unloaded from RAM. Overwrite one by the other, and uninstall the other. That will not delete them.

Everytime I turn on my TI-84 Plus Silver, it stays on for 2 seconds, then shuts off on its own. What can fix this? Other details: When it turns on, sometimes it displays Ans+

Hi mixedgamer12,
The process below should reset your Ti84 plus calculator. If you do this process your RAM memory will be cleared and, you will have to re-install the Ti84 plus calculator's OS.
  1. 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.
  2. Remove one of the AAA batteries. Press and hold the [DEL] key. While holding [DEL], reinsert the AAA battery and then turn the calculator on. The calculator should display
    "Waiting...Please install calculator software now". Follow the instructions for the
    TI-83 family or TI-84 Plus family to reinstall the calculator operating system in step 3. If the calculator still won't turn on connect the calculator to the computer and, open Ti Connect. Next, open Device Explorer. Is the calculator asking to be installed? Can you go into Device Explorer?
  3. Steps to re-installing the operating system:

    ~Connect the TI Connectivity cable between the PC and the calculator if you haven't already.
    ~Click on Start >> Programs >> TI Tools >> TI Connect >> TI OSDownloader
    ~Follow the on-screen directions to reinstall the calculator's OS. When or, if the calculator install the fresh OS goto step 4.

  4. Remove all of the batteries including the round lithium battery for 5 minutes. After the 5 minute period, reinsert all of the batteries and turn the calculator on. Adjust the contrast if necessary.

  5. If the above process did not work to turn your calculator on, try re-doing the above process. Next time extend the time in step 4 by 5 minutes to 10 minutes before you put all the batteries back in the calculator.

I have a TI 84 plus silver edition. Won't turn

The problem may be due a screen that is too light to see anything on it. Adjust the screen darkness.
  1. Press [2nd] key and release it.
  2. Press and HOLD the [UpArrow] to draken screen.
  3. Release the [UpArrow] when screen is dark enough.
You can also connect it to the computer to see if TI Connect finds it. If it does, update the OS to version 2.53MP.

You change the backup battery if the calculator tells you RAM CLEARED each time you turn it ON.

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.

TI-84 Calc is FROZEN

I'd try hooking it to the computer using ti connect explorer and see if deleting the programs there would help. I had a calculator that did the same thing and never did fix it. But if your memory can be delete and reinstalled it might work.
