Question about Texas Instruments TI-30X-IISTK Scientific Calculator

Have a new TI30XIIS and all efforts to get it to work fail yielding only syntax error

Thanks
Doug

Push the button that says "2nd", then push the number "0". This will reset the calculator. After resetting, it should work again.

My son cleared the memory to fix the syntax issue. The solution involved hitting the delete and memory key at the same time....

You enter a command. It is like an English sentence with a syntax (correct structure). If the structure of the command is wrong, you have a syntax error. You could use a minus - sign, instead of a change sign (-) that constitutes a syntax error.

See captured image below. You have to use (-) sign

Press 2nd [SCI/ENG], use the arrow keys to select SCI, then press ENTER. To control the number of digits after the decimal point, press 2nd [FIX] and select the desired number.

I am willing to bet that if the calculator could talk she would tell you to stop feeding it commands that make no sense. Joking aside, each command has a certain syntax, similar to sentences you make in English: a prescribed order of the components of the sentence.

For some calculators (the older generations) you press a number then the square root key to get the square root. For the newer ones, you press the square root key. The calculator keeps waiting until you enter the radicand, then it calculates the root.

So before using the command you must know in what order to press the key sequence. If you get an error with a certain key order, do the opposite.

Now, why is the calculator giving you a syntax error always?. There could be may reasons.Try a simple addition or a multiplication. If you get a syntax error, it may be due the computational mode. You may be in statistics mode , or some other modes, I cannot begin to guess, because you say nothing about what you were doing when you get the errors.

Try to reset the calculator to get to default computational mode.

1. If the command contains a syntax error. Look for misplaced functions, arguments, parentheses, or commas.

2. Exponents can not be more than three digits.

3. Sign = is not valid in parentheses excepr where an expressions is required.

4. Axes in

Having gone over a month without a response to my query, I assume this is no longer a problem.

I have no idea what you mean by linear calculation reset. So I will not address it. As to the operation, (5+5[a b/c] [=] my calculator did not scream Syntax Error and dutifully supplied the missing parenthesis. The result is 7u1u2 or 7 and 1/2

I suspect you entered (5+5) [a b/c] 2 or (5+5) [/] 2 [=]. On my calculator the first key sequence yields 7u1u2, while the second key sequence yields 7.5

I'm assuming the lack of a response means using the proper key did the trick.

Use the (-) key next to the decimal point to enter the negative value, not the - key.

syntax error

this is so ******* annoying

unable to restart several windows XP Pro services like RPC,Installer and dependency group in services.msc. when I try to open the service properties to open task option menu don't get any response.
