A problem exists with the window variables, for example Xmax < Xmin or Ymax < Ymin.

Press WINDOW to bring up the window editor and examine the values for any inconsistencies.

You will have to hit the window button on the face of the calculator that is just below the screen and change the values making sure the max value is larger than the min value.

Grr, wenever i try to graph it says ERR: Window Range

This is because you have your windows set to amount that are invalid. Hit the windows range button (2nd f3 I believe) and set xmin to -10, xmax to 10, step/interval = 1, Ymin to -10, Ymax to 10, step/interval = 1.

For my ti-84 I try to graph & it says ERR:window range...but when i try to fix the range it won't allow there a good widow range to have for all graphing purposes?

There is no one good window range for all graphs, since graphs can have different areas of interest.

Press the ZOOM key, then select ZStandard. This will restore the window settings to the default range, which will at least allow the graph to be displayed. You can then change the window range and/or zoom as desired.

If this doesn't do it, please reply to this post, giving the function(s) you're trying to graph and your current window settings.

Calculator all of a sudden stop graphing. When i hit graph it says err:window range

Press the WINDOW button (2nd from the left, very top row) and check the window limits. In particular, make sure that Xmin and Ymin are less than Xmax and Ymax respectively.

If that's not the problem, append a comment to this post listing the window variables and the function you're trying to plot.

There's something wrong with your window limits, for example Xmax < Xmin or Ymax < Ymin. Press WINDOW to bring up the window editor and examine the values, making sure there are no inconsistencies.

If you don't see anything wrong, post a comment here listing all of the entries in the window editor.

My calculator doesn't graph anything just says err:window range and 1:quit and the graph is weard!!help meeee please !!!!!

Try using the standard Zoom.
If you are drawing Y=f(X) functions, press [ZOOM][6:ZStandard]. The window dimensions will be [-10, 10] for X and the same for Y.
If you are drawing polar graphs, in addition to the X,Y windows dimensions, you have Theta min =0 and Theta max =2*Pi =(6.28)

ERR: Window Range

Press ZOOM and select Zoom standard (ZoomStd).
Alternatively, press the WINDOW key to access the window range setup
Set Xmin=-10
These are the standard dimensions of the window.
You can change the dimensions as long as Xmin is less then Xmax, and Ymin is less than Ymax. Do not make Xres close to Xmax-Xmin.

Graph not working

The window ranges you chose may be wrong. Use ZoomStd ( Zooom standard) or use values that satisfy inequalities Xmin less than Xmax and Ymin less than Ymax. make sure the ranges Xmin, Xmax and Ymin, Ymax cover the area of the graph you are interested in.
Hope it helps.

Graph feature not working on my TI-83 Plus


Hit this sequence:

"ZOOM" "0"

That is for the "Zoom Fit" option. The calculator does not like the window you have for the equation you've given it. With this option, it will automatically give you the best fit in the window for the equation!
