Karine Bagdasaryan did you turn it off and then back on? Have you removed the batteries for awhile and then reinserted those?

Wow, that’s a crazy error.

You can try to perform a RAM reset by, like MD dm said, removing the battery and replacing it. Or by pressing the ‘reset’ button on the back of the calculator.

This may not work though, in which case you’ll need to re-install the OS. That’s kinda hard to instruct in text so I’ll refer you to a video tutorial here.

This issue may lie deeper though. You can test if your calculator is defective by running a self test. There’s a video on how to use it here. You should run tests 6 and 7. (There’s an index in the description of the video that’ll give you the exact time-stamp) If your calculator fails one of those tests, you should contact TI immediately.

If you don’t mind, could you let us know how everything turned out for you? :)
