Hi,

a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.

the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).

click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

goodluck!

Look for a key labeled Y= ( the y= editor) and press it. Use the key pad to type in the right side of the function.

Press Graph to display the graph.

If drawing is out of range set the window parameters. Alternatively (if there is a zoom key) use it to select a ZoomIn, a ZoomOut , Zoom Standard.

A) Before drawing function Y1=f(X), R1=F(Theta), (X1=f(T), Y1=f(T))

you should turn the statistical plots OFF.

To turn statistical plots off

Usually as soon as you start entering an expression in the Y= editor screen, the = sign is highlighted to ensure the drawing of a function. However, if you have previously used the Transfm application to draw dynamic graphs, it takes over the graphing functionalities from the native OS and you can only draw a single graph.

The reason is that dynamic graphing needs one or two parameters that can be changed during the graphing process and the graph redrawn with a new value of a parameter, and you end up with a family of curves differing one from the other by the values of one parameters. But since the calculator has space for 10 graphs at most, only one function can be highlighted.

To make a long story short, you must uninstall the Transfrm application from memory. The procedure will not erase it, just kick it out of memory.

Another potential culprit is the Inequalz App. You recognize that Inequalz is runnibg if the [ Y=] editor screen shows tabs at the bottom

I think you are saying that when you graph, you get the message "invalid dim"

If you are trying to graph from the y= screen it may me that you have one of the plots on. If this is the case, look at the top of the y= screen. If plot 1, plot 2 or plot 3 has darkened box around it, the plot is on and you need to turn it off. Move your cursor on top of the one that is highlighted and press enter. You should now have the plot turned off and should be able to graph from the y= screen.

Another way to do this is to press 2nd key, plus key and then 7, and then 1 and then 2. This will reset your ram.

Hope this helps

Instruction book for this calculator is shocking for sure. It would take too long to explain fully, here is an example of plotting a simple Y= graph.

In main menu, when you first turn it on, press 1

This is normal calculator mode.

Press [shift] [menu] to get the set up parameters.

Scroll curser down one to Func Type, and select Y= if this is not already set, by pressing F1

Continue scrolling down to set Coord, Grid, Axes and Label functions. Turn these on or off as desired. Turn them all off for this example. F1 and F2 select On or Off here.

Press [exit]

Press [shift] F3 to access the V-window parameters. Here you set the size of the axis in the graph

Enter 0 for Xmin, 360 for Xmax, 0.1 for scale

Enter -1 for Ymin, 1 for Ymax, and 0.1 for scale

Press [exit]

Press [shift] F4 to enter graph plot mode (Sketch mode)

Press F1 then [EXE] to clear any previous graphs

Press F5 then F1 to select Y= type graph

Display should show Graph Y=

press [sin] [ X,0,T] (this key just under red alpha key) then [EXE]

Calculator should draw a sine wave, showing 1 complete wave

Try setting the parameters in Set up, Axes On, Label On etc to see the effect.

Hope this helps a little. Page 123 in book deals with graphing.

This calculator has so many options you can change, that it is possible one of them has been altered. Try pressing the master reset button at the back to re-set the calculator. Note that you will lose all your programs and data, so first copy out anything important. Also, set the xmin and xmax parameters to a higher value. To plot a sign wave, try xmin=-720, xmax=720, step=1, ymin=-1, ymax=1, step=.1 The step value won't change the appearance of the graph, just make it more chunky or fine. Use the equation y=sin x. This should draw a sign wave showing 4 complete waves. PS when you enter the X in the equations, you are pressing the X,0,T button, the one under the alpha key, aren't you? If you enter X using the x alpha key, it won't work. Also, to plot y=, make sure you change the func type parameter in the Set Up menu to y=. Hope this helps.
