How can I troubleshoot an Error in Xmit error message when transferring data between two graphing calculators?

The Error in Xmit error message is returned when a connection cannot be established between two calculators when attempting to transfer data. There are several factors that can contribute to this error message.
• The calculators being connected are not compatible for data transfer.
• The data cable is not firmly connected to both units.
• The receiving calculator is not in receive mode.
• The I/O port on one of the graphing calculators is damaged.
The procedure for connecting two graphing calculators is as follows:

• Connect the data cable to the I/O port of each unit. The cable will fit tightly in the I/O port and snap into place. If silver from the cable is visible, the cable is not properly connected.
• Access the Link menu on each unit
• Place the receiving graphing calculator on "Receive"
• Place the sending unit on "Transmit" or "Send" from the Link menu.

Once the data has been selected, the transfer will commence accordingly.

The data transfer protocols for graphing calculator is as follows:

• TI-73 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-73, TI-82, TI-83, and TI-83 Plus.
• TI-82 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-82.
• TI-83 - Link allows data sharing with the TI-82, TI-83 family calculator, and TI-84 Plus family calculator.
• TI-83 Plus/TI-84 Plus family- Link allows data sharing with another TI-82, TI-83 family calculator, and TI-84 Plus family calculator.
• TI-85 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-85(To a TI-86. Not From a TI-86).
• TI-86 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-86 and from a TI-85 to a TI-86.
• TI-89 family- Link allows data sharing with another TI-89 family calculator and from a TI-92 family calculator.
• TI-92 family- Link allows data sharing with another TI-92 family calculator and from a TI-89 family calculator.
• Voyage™ 200 - Link allows data sharing with another Voyage 200 and TI-92 family calculator.

If the cable does not fit properly into the I/O port, or if the I/O port appears to be damaged (broken or separated plastic, obstruction inside the port), call 1-800-TI-CARES (1-800-842-2737) M-TH 8:00 AM - 7:00 PM FRI 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM Central Standard Time to speak to a representative or sending an email to

On my casio fx-83GT PLUS calculator whenever i use the inverse cos,sine and tan function math ERROR comes up how do i fix this

The inverse cosine function is defined for arguments from -1 to +1. 6 is outside of this domain, thus the error. Do you get an error if you try the inverse cosine of 0.6, for example?

If you're getting the same error for the inverse tangent, could you post an example?

Xmit error message

Error in Xmit meaning one of the next options:

• The TI-84 Plus was unable to transmit an item. Check
to see that the cable is firmly connected to both units
and that the receiving unit is in receive mode

• You pressed ON to break during transmission

• You attempted to perform a backup from a TI-82 to a
TI-84 Plus

• You attempted to transfer data (other than L1 through
L6) from a TI-84 Plus to a TI-82

Connecting casio to texas instr

I compared two cables and noticed that they are identical. One insulating part on the TI cable is longer than the corresponding part on the Casio cable. But no matter, let us assume that the calculators share the same 2.5 mm connection.
You can verify the hardware compatibility as follows
  1. Use the Casio I/O cable to connect two TI calculators. The Casio cable wakes up the TI84PLus
  2. Use the TI I/O cable to connect to Casio calculators. The TI cable wakes up the Casio FX9550GII but not the CFX-9750GPlus nor the Graph 35. But that may not mean too much.
  3. Create a Matrix ( a 3X3 ) on one TI8xPLUS and transfer it to another TI8xPLUS using the Casio Cable.
  4. Create a small (3x3) matrix on one Casio C/FX-9750G/PLUS and transfer it to another C/FX-9750G/Plus.
  5. If you have been successful in any of the above you may try to transfer an object from a TI to a casio or from a Casio to a TI and the cable that worked above.
My feeling is that you cannot. I tried it
When I tried to transfer from a TI to a Casio, the Casio kept displaying RECEIVING , AC to cancel. The TI returned an Xmit ERROR
When I tried to transfer from a Casio to TI, the Casio quickly returned a Transmit Error, while the TI kept waiting for a transmission.

There may be other issues of memory organization, naming conventions, systems commands and program commands so on.

For each problem you want to have your students solve try to supply the procedures for both types of calculators. This, in my opinion, is the reasonable way to go. A benefit to you is that you learn the expert use of both types of calculators.
If you care to specify what kind of programs you intend to transfer from one to the other, one may be able to point you to some resources available on the web.
