    Is there any other option?

    Thanks for both of your guys' help! I actually took the software off and put it back on again twice before I got it to work. I don't know if somewhere in there the defaults were reset or what, but the equation itself didn't use any variables, so dunno. I'm baffled but happy. :) Thanks again for both of your responses!

Hi,
The error 14 message is displayed when you perform calculations that involve a variable that is not defined. See the following script
2 STO-> A [ENTER] Calculator displays 2
(A+2)^2 [ENTER] Calculator displays 16
DelVar (A) [ENTER] Calculator displays Done
(A+2)^2 [ENTER] Calculator displays ERROR 14 UNDEFINED

What you may have defined then deleted, only YOU know. I suggest you reset the the calculator to defaults.

To reset calculator to defaults
Press [2nd][MEM][F3:Reset][2:Deflts][ENTER].

It will reset the calculator to its default configuration. When you select and confirm DFLTS, the default contrast is reset.

To adjust contrast,

  1. Press [2nd] release it.
  2. Press and HOLD [UpArrow] to darken or
  3. Press and HOLD [DownArrow] to lighten the screen.
Hope it helps.
Thank you for using FixYa and for rating this solution.

The software for your calculator may need to be updated. You can get the update from the manufacture's website under the download or support tab.

    You could look in the back to see if there is a pinsized reset button you could press and reset the calculator. Or remove battery, press and hold power button for 3 seconds, re-insert and turn back on and see if that helps.

How do you get the table ([2ND GRAPH]) from the [STAT] [EDIT] [L1] [L2] list to appear with [Y1] in the second the column? The information appears in the scatter plot, but the information in the table does...


Instead of hitting the [table] button. You should hit the [stat] or [stats] button as I forget which it is. Then hit [enter] which will bring you to a stats list editor of some kind. You will want to enter the data for your x-axis in L1 and the data for your y-axis in L2. Once you have completed your lists, hit the [stat] button again and then click [right] or the right arrow in order to move to the section of calc. from number 4 down it will help create a graph of that type of function. lets say you think it is linear, so you hit [enter] on number 4 and then you will be at the home screen with LinReg already written. You just have to complete the statement and it will do it for you. hit the [2nd] [1] and then the comma button, then [2nd] [2] and [enter]. that will do it for you.

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.

I was told that, to do binomial distributions on a ti-86, I would need to hit 2nd Math, then More, and I should see something that says STAT and go from there to get to DIST and Binomi. I see nothing...


Hello,

Sorry, but you information is wrong, to find the binomial distribution use the PROB menu not the STAT menu. Its name is randBi
[2nd][MATH][F2:PROB] scroll right.
Hope it helps.

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 GRAPH F1 to enter the equation editor.

Plot1 Plot2 Plot3 on the top line of the equation editor displays the on/off status of each stat plot. When a plot name is highlighted, the plot is on. To toggle the status, press up, left, and right to place the cursor on the name, then press ENTER.

TI-86 Calculator Problem


Most likely you're trying to graph a function while you have the stat plot turned on. Turn off the stat plot and try it again.
