Just had a student with this same problem. How we fixed hers was under memory (2nd +) select delete (or mem mgmt/del...) then select y-vars and "DEL" anything listed there.

Error Data Type mean that you entered a value or variable that is the wrong data type:
• For a function (including implied multiplication)
or an instruction, you entered an argument that
is an invalid data type, such as a complex
number where a real number is required. See
Appendix A and the appropriate chapter.
• In an editor, you entered a type that is not
allowed, such as a matrix entered as an element
in the stat list editor. See the appropriate
chapter.
• You attempted to store an incorrect data type,
such as a matrix, to a list.

SOURCE: "Err: Data Type" - Not Allowing Me to Graph

First, turn it on. Once the calculator is on, press the "2ND" key (I believe it is a blue key in the ti-84 plus silver edition). Now press the plus key (+). A little above that key, you should see the word "mem." When you see the screen titled MEMORY, move the cursor all the way down to the option that says "Reset." From here, you can choose to reset either the RAM memory, or the factory settings. The factory settings are the "Defaults" option. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: i type in my y= and press graph then it goes

You're probably trying to graph a function that does not involve stat plot features. You can correct this by turning off the stat plot features. Press "2ND" "STAT PLOT" and then select 4:PlotsOff.

Graph drawing problem


Read the first part of the answer to deactivate the statistical plots. No need to read the rest if you know how to do graphs.

Prepare calculator to graph


Turn StatPlotsOff to avoid errors:
Press [2nd][STATPLOT][4:PlotsOff][ENTER].

8e1f66f.jpg
Setup Graph type
  • Press [MODE] key.
  • In Mode set up screen, make set the angle unit (if you are drawing trigonometric functions)..
  • Use the arrows to move cursor to 3rd line to highlight degree or radian and press [ENTER]. The important thing is that you be aware of the unit so that you do not get unexpected results.
  • On same screen, verify that Func is highlighted. If you are drawing PARametric plots, POLar plots or SEQuence plots, you highlight the relevant item in the list
  • If it is not, use arrow to highlight Func and press [ENTER] to validate.
  • Do not worry if you do not have exactly the same screen as in the screen picture (We may have different OS Versions)

Entering the functions to draw (assuming you want to draw y= functions)
  • Press [Y=] to enter function editor.
  • Type in a function
  • Press [ENTER] at the end of each function.
  • Before pressing [GRAPH], make sure that all the = signs that define the functions to be graphed are highlighted white on black. If one is not highlighted, use arrow to move cursor on the sign and press [ENTER].
  • In the screen capture 4 functions are slated to be drawn.

Selecting the Graph Style (You may ignore this now, because it is unimportant for just one graph)
  • Select the graph style: The small piece of line to the left of a Y that defines a function is the style.
  • Move cursor on it and press [ENTER] .
  • Each [ENTER] (on same line) selects another style.
  • On the next screen you have all the styles available on the calculator.
  • Do not select the bubble on line 6: It is for animations. It will not leave a trace at the end of the plot.

Drawing the Graphs
  • Press [GRAPH] to see the graphs.
  • If one of them is missing, verify that its = is still highlighted, then use the [WINDOW] to set the Window dimensions,
  • Here are the dimensions of the standard window

ZOOMING
You can also press [ZOOM] to adjust.

The selection 6:ZStandard sets the dimensions as on the screen Titled Window (above).

Cannot graph invalid dim error


This error show up when you are graphing out of the plot menu. If you are not graphing data points from list menu, you need to turn the plots off. In the y= screen, you will see the words plot 1, plot 2, etc across the top of the screen. If one of the plots is highlighted (black box over the words), you need to turn it off. This can be done by arrowing up and highlighting the box and pressing enter. When you arrow back down, the plot should be off and you will be able to enter an equation in the y= lines and graph.

If you are graphing from the plot menu, this error lets you know that one of the lists you are graphing is longer than the other.

Another way to fix the problem is to reset the calculator by pressing 2nd button then plus sign then 7 then 1 then 2. This will reset the calculator however if you are graphing from lists, your data will be erased. Hope this helps.

When graph get err dim how do you fix


ERR: DIM means your dimension (Xmin,Xmax that kind of stuff) can not show all of your data. You need to change your X,Y min and max so it fits. this usually happends only when you try to display plots of any sort. It is very annoying trying to get the right dimension....

Graph and trace buttons don't work


This is probably because you have the stat plot on. You would need to go to y= and then go to the top where it says stat plot 1 and un highlight it if it is highligted. That should fix your problem.

Graph and trace buttons don't work


If either error occurs when trying to graph a function (not a STAT PLOT), the error can be corrected by turning off the STAT PLOTS. The following steps will turn the STAT PLOTS off, allowing the graph of the function to be displayed.• Press [2nd] [Y=] to access the STAT PLOTS menu.
• Select 4: PlotsOff.
• Press [ENTER].
• Try graphing a function like y = x^4-3x^3+6x-1
