    anytime i put a formula into the y= i get an error invalid dim. i just want to graph, so does anyone know what's going on? i looked in the manual about fixing the problem, but it just talked about dimensions, mostly in relation to matrices, which doesnt have anything to do with plotting a little graph that i want. please help!!

This happened to me as well. i looked it up and heres what i found:
http://www.prenhall.com/divisions/esm/app/graphing/ti83/faq/faq.html

basically you have a stat plot on so to turn it off, press 2nd and then the Y= button to get to "Stat Plot"
one of them is turned on so press enter and select OFF. this should fix the problem!

Getting ERR: INVALID DIM when pressing the Graph button


If the message appears when you try to graph functions deactivate the statistical plots. To do so:

Press [2nd][Y=] to access (STAT PLOTs)
Select [4:PlotsOff] then [ENTER]

That should solve your problem. Post a comment to this thread if you still have trouble graphing.If the message appears in another context, it sure would help knowing the context of the error.
