TI-84+ hardware change info
« Reply #30 on: October 05, 2009, 05:04:29 pm »
Wasn't the L calc that worked the one when production went back to factory S?  For some reasons, it's missing from the UTI list

I hope the production went back to S, else we will have a problem...
And the only way to be sure would be to open the calculator and check the chip.
(because the serial could have been changed: it's just a sticker - or the calc could have been serviced, and its hardware replaced...)

It's missing because the serial hasn't been reported yet.

I couldn't find where the K-factory is (very rare... unique up to now), but here is a very small table of TI manufacturing places:

I - Taiwan
K - ?
N - China
P - China
S - China

Aaah ok. However, wasn't there more calcs with tests that said it failed/ok'ed on them? I swear in the list there used to be one of the calc where production went back to S where it didn,t fail.

It is getting a bit confusing

What i wonder the most, though, is if the chips are 128 KB that are just not fully accessible through our usual methods or if they really put a total of 48 KB hidden RAM in these calcs... BrandonW on #tcpa said the later is near impossible because the TI-OS apparently use that 128 KB hidden RAM

Ok, the L-revision calculator has been rechecked.
It was an error.

There is no problem any more.

Every TI-84+(SE) with hardware revision H and above, is failing the 128K RAM test, probably because of the TA1 CPU/RAM chip being used instead of the TA2/TA3 chips.


Next question will be: how much RAM is there really in the TA1? . . .

Aaah ok, so no "production was temporarly moved back to S factory" thing anymore?

Also, has any of the other listed calcs been tested in the ones that weren't?

aaah ok good, that removes some confusion then.

Also I wonder where all the new members that came just for the emulator went... because if they returned on Omnimaga and checked the threads, maybe they could post their serial number ending too and do some tests too (including the members who got the emu to run)... it would help a lot. I think we got at least 30 new members just for the TI-Boy SE emulator

8. DISCUSSION TECHNIQUE
A woman has the last word in any argument.
Anything a man says after that is the beginning of a new argument.

Girls = Time * Money (Girls are a combination of time and money)
Time = Money (Time is money)
Girls = Money squared (So, girls are money squared)
Money = sqrt(Evil) (Money is also the root of all evil)
Girls = sqrt(Evil) squared (So, girls are the root of all evil squared)
Girls = Evil (Thus, girls are evil)

Well to be fair he's pretty much like the Bill Nagel/Patrick Davidson of the 21th century. I could maybe say Sam Heald too, but IIRC, Sam Heald mostly just ported games, few of his files were his own games. Iambian would be next on the list. Calc84 got fewer games than Sam/PatrickD but many of his stuff are things that were not finished before (I don't recall seeing a 8 lv grayscale game for the 83+ before)

well, given the employees experience and them not wanting to tell much info, like someone said on UTI forum I think they'll tell you your calc has 24389 bytes of user RAM and 1540 KB of archive, no matter how hard you try to ask them more info

Well, i'm kinda new to my calculator, it's a TI-84 Plus.
My serial at the end is "S-10071" (I got it about a week ago)
When I press [2nd]->[+ ] (MEM) then go down to [Mem Mgmt/Del...] then [Enter] it says:

RAM FREE: 11784
ARC FREE: 464169

My question is if I can have the gameboy simulator (TIboy) and play Pokemon Red/Blue on it? Just like I did on my "Gameboy COLOUR"

Thanks :)

Are you sure it isn't S-1007I?

probably it is
anywho, sorry you won't be able to play it, a regular TI84+ just doesn't have enough place to fit it on
smaller games should work tho, I think...

Well, it's hard to see, because it looks like the "1" after the "S-"
So..  then the TI-84 plus don't have enough memory, like NecroF-_-ckk said?
Hi :D
