How do I clear ERR:SYNTAX on my TI-84 plus?


When you get an error message you can clear it by pressing the CLEAR button. To prevent the calculator from firing off that message, you have to look at the command you entered. The message says SYNTAX ERROR meaning thet the way you typed in the command and its argument is incorrect. Usually you get a quit or GO TO with any message. To see exactly where there is something wromg select the oprion GO TO and the cursor will be at the exact point where there is an error.
Unfortunately one cannot help you here because you do not specify the command, nor what you wer trying to do when the meassage popped up. The message is generic and not specific. There are scores of commands and an unlimited number of ways to write them wrong.

When i type anything into Y= the error message INVALID DIM comes up. What do I do to fix this?


I believe that you get the error message not when you type anything in Y= editor, but after you hit the {GRAPH] button. Anyway this is due to the fact that one of your statistical plots are active.

If you got the message while trying to draw a graph (that is your situation)
  1. Press [2nd][Y=] (STAT PLOT)
  2. Choose option [4:PlotsOff][ENTER]. Screen displays Done
If message popped up while doing something else that involves lists or matrices, the length of lists may be different, or the dimensions of matrices may not be compatible.

To Clear the lists:
  1. Press [2nd][0] (CATALOG)
  2. Press [PGRM] (C) to jump to first command that starts with c.
  3. Use arrow to scroll down to ClrAllLists, select it [ENTER]
  4. Calculator displays Done
  5. Start the new problem.
To reset the Ram press [2nd][ ] (MEM) [7:Reset][1:All Ram][2:Reset]. Press [CLEAR] to erase the Ram Cleared message.

When the RAM is cleared, the calculator is reset. The calculator resets itself after a battery change.

I keep getting an error message when I try to graph something. It says window range. I have tired to change my windows Xmin and etc..when I try to change it won't let me..it states Error Syntax


It is difficult to know what you have done with the calculator before you started to graph. So if you agree we will start with a clean slate.

Reset the calculator
  1. Press [2nd][+] to access the (MEM)ory management tool.
  2. Select [7:Reset][[1:All Ram][2:Reset].
  3. Calculator answers with the message "Ram Cleared".
  4. Press [CLEAR] to erase message.
  5. Restart your graphing.

If you do not want to erase the content of the RAM, you can eliminate the error by pressing the [ZOOM] button and selecting [6:ZStandard].

My 1-var stats button is not working it says the


Hi,
You will have to report faithfully the message returned, you cannot use your interpretation of the message. Error messages are codified. Each one will correspond to very particular error conditions. I did check the manual for all possible error messages and there is none that states wrong info.

My hunch is that there are errors in your data, but I can't say what type of error: I do not have the actual message returned. Verify you data, item by item, and try again.

To make sure that the calculator is well configured to do statistics
  1. Press [STAT][5:SetUpEditor][ENTER]
  2. Press [2nd][0] (CATALOG) and press [PRGM] (C) to jump to the first command starting with C.
  3. Scroll down to [ClrAllListsts] and press [ENTER]
  4. Calculator replies Done
Restart your statistical data entry.

Hope it helps.

Can not get it to start up after putting in all five new batteries. screen is full of wierdness but will turn on/off.


Hi,
Where that ''weirdness'' is coming from, I cannot say, but you can press the CLEAR key to clear the screen. Reset the calculator Ram.
Press [2nd][MEM][7:Reset][1:All Ram][2:Reset][ENTER]. Press [CLEAR] to erase the "Ram Cleared" message.

Make it a habit to exit thid-party programs/games after each use. They have a tendancy to get stuck in RAM, thus preventing you from using your calculator.

Hope it helps.

Gives error memory message when tries to change


Hi,
See if the cursor is checkered. If so, the calculator is out of memory.
You may have very little memory available and then wanted to create a table with a very small DeltaTbl (the table step). If the step is small, and the domain is large, very many points will have to be generated and that may make the calculator unable to comply for lack of RAM.

I suggest you free some Ram by clearing the lists, clearing the entries. To do so you press [2nd][MEM][3:Clear Entries] to clear entries, then press [2nd][MEM][4:ClrAllLists] to clear the lists.

Alternatively, you can just reset the Ram by pressing [2nd][MEM][7:Reset][1:All Ram][2:Reset][ENTER]. Then clear the Ram Cleared message and start again your table.

Hope it helps.

TI-83 Plus Silver Edition problem


These instructions are from education.ti.org, and worked for me.

1) Take out one of the AAA batteries
2) Hold down the CLEAR button
3) Put the AAA battery back in while still holding down the CLEAR button
4) Let go of the CLEAR button and turn the calculator ON
5) Press CLEAR to get rid of the error message.

Then you should be good! All the applications on my calculator were still intact, so despite the error message, the RAM was never actually cleared.
