I keep getting error: Domain error

whenever i try to do any base conversions

on my TI-89 titanium and I don't know why exactly

e.g. "1000>hex" (goto math and base and hex) then enter and it says i have a domain error

Not sure if TI-89 mode keys are the same, but here's the solution for that calculator:

1. Hit the mode key

2. Hit F3 to get tot Exact/Approx (might be different for 89T).

3. Set it to Exact.

4. Take a look at T-89 manual pages 327, 328, 329.

Nice of TI to NOT include that in the manual, huh?

The domain error occurs when you have it set to Approx. Set it to Exact or Auto and this should solve your problem.

I got the main problem..

google TI-89 manual.

It will be of 1001 pages..

go for page #689 (or search in appendix for Base conversion)

u will get it...!!!

None of these solutions answer his question. When converting a fraction or any number with decimal places to Binary, the TI-89 gives "Error: Domain error." For example, entering .6875 [2ND][MATH][BASE][BIN] does not work. I haven't found a way to do it with built in functions. In order to do these types of conversions, I use the following method.

Convert: 0.6875 to Binary

- left of decimal is a 0, so write down a 0, then a decimal point: (0.)

- multiply .6875 x 2 = 1.375 left of decimal is 1, write a 1: (0.1)

- drop the 1 and multiply .375 x 2 = .75 left of decimal is 0. write a 0: (0.10)

- multiply .75 x 2 = 1.5 left of decimal is 1, write a 1: (0.101)

- drop the 1, multiple .5 x 2 = 1. left of decimal is 1, write a 1: (0.1011).

- since there is no more fraction, the final answer is (0.1011). Hope this helps.

Press MODE 4 to enter the BASE-N mode. Press the BIN, OCT, DEC, or HEX button to specify the input number base, enter the number to be converted, then press the BIN, OCT, DEC, or HEX button to convert to that base. To enter the other hexadecimal digits, use the A, B, C, D, E, F buttons (the row of the keyboard beginning with the (-) key.

The TI-83 Plus does not have any built-in base conversion capabilities. However, you will find plenty of programs for doing so at http://www.ticalc.org

Having gone over a month with no response, I assume this is no longer a problem.

2nd and f6 or something...

make sure minimum and maximum values aren't mixed up!

I had the same problem, this worked for me:

Mode -> page 2 -> Exact/Approx change from "Exact" -> "Auto"

Mode -> page 2 -> Exact/Approx change from "Exact" -> "Auto"

An argument must be in a specified domain. For example, ans(100) is not valid because the argument for ans() must be in the range 1–99.

It's the "Exact/Approx" setting under the [MODE] key. I used to have it on "Exact" and got the domain error issue, but then changed it to "Auto" and it works. IMO, this is a really weird quirk that TI should have ironed out before releasing the TI-89.

i have same this problem than i run basic app

The same thing keeps hapening with my ti-89 titanium also. It happens trying to convert from any base to another: like decimal to binary.

Have the same Problem, Solution works on Ti 89 it's on Page 2

why is the syntax error coming...???

its not the exact thing,

the cursor stops after " >bin " is written
