Any time I plug my calculator in everything goes blank and none of the buttons do anything. The screen stays blank white and I can't turn the calculator off. The reset button temporarily fixes the problem... Help?
What graphing calculator? What kind of cable are you using?
I think it's frozen. If you've been using Doors CSE or another Assembly program or app, it might've overwritten some of the OS, causing a freeze on startup. I would suggest the putting the latest OS on your calculator.

tifreak, I believe cori is using a CSE, because they plugged in the calculator.
I also think it's a CSE because it has a reset button.
My Nspire has a reset button. My HP Prime has a reset button. My Casio Prizm has a reset button.
Its a TI-84 Plus C silver edition
The charging cable is the one that came with the calculator
There is an edit button for this kind of stuff. Please don't make multiple posts.

Good point... I assumed it was a TI

That is extremely unlikely. Doors CSE does not include any Flash unlock exploits, so it's impossible for it to overwrite the OS itself unless _ArcUnarc has an exploitable bug (which Doors CSE does not attempt, obviously). An ASM program could have overwritten the OS, but again, this is extraordinarily difficult to do accidentally.

Thanks Kerm. Doors CSE was the first ASM app that came to mind, so I used that sort of as an example of an ASM program/app. Didn't mean to blame DCSE Smile

What are you plugging the cable in to (besides the calculator), the charger that came with the calculator? Does this happen if you only plug the calculator end in and leave the USB end unplugged? Does this happen with another charger (like a computer)?
