I had the same problem and finally figured out how to fix it. You need to clear the memory. To do so, first press and release the 2nd button at the top left of the calculator. You will see "2nd" appear on the screen at the lower left. next press the 0 button (which 2nd function is "Reset"). The key to making this work is: do not hold the 2nd button while pressing the 0 button. You have to press it, release it, and then press the 0 button.

### How do I graph a simple equation on my TI-86, without getting an error 07 message? y=-1.5x+3

Error 07 Syntax
Means you made a typing error while entering the equation. Using the minus sign instead of the negation sign (change sign) (-), can produce a syntax error. Maybe you need to explicitly type the multiplication sign
y= (-) 1.5*x +3
Try entering it as 3 - 1.5*x

### What does error syntax mean

You enter a command. It is like an English sentence with a syntax (correct structure). If the structure of the command is wrong, you have a syntax error. You could use a minus - sign, instead of a change sign (-) that constitutes a syntax error.

### I need to use the exponential function with a negative exponent on my TI-30XIIS. I hit 2nd then e^x button, but when i input a negative exponent I get an error. Help please!

I think what you did was use the minus sign instead of the negative sign, on that calculator, the two are not interchangeable. I purposely used the minus sign just now and also got a syntax error, but it looks like it works with the negative sign (-) located under the 3 button.

### My TI-30XIIS calculator displays an arrow,an DEG, and a K always on my screen whenever i try to do simple multiplication. it says Syntax error and will not compute an answer.............

I had this problem also and just fixed it. I hit 2nd key...don't hold it, (it should say 2nd in the lower left corner across from the DEG) then click the K button (also the divide key). The arrow and DEG will remain, but do not affect simple math calculations. Hope this helps!

### How can i find a minute sign in my Ti 83

Press [2nd][APPS] to open the (ANGLE) menu. The symbol for the minutes is the second in the list. To enter the seconds press [ALPHA] [+].
When entering an angle in D(egree)M(inute)S(second), you must enter the number of minutes even if it is zero.
12 deg 25" will give a syntax error, so you have to type 12 deg 0' 25"

### I get syntax error on every function - no matter what i do...any ideas? is the calculator just broken?

If it can complain about your syntax, then it is still working properly.
For certain functions you enter the number, press the function key and you get the answer.
For other functions, you press the function key, then the number, and after that the equal sign to get the result.

### How do I stop getting the synthx error

Hello,
The calculator will stop screaming out SYNTAX ERROR, when you stop ordering it to do things the wrong way.
Take a look at the manual.
For certain calculations you enter the number first and then press the function key.
For others, you press the function key then the number.
If an expression contains a left parenthesis, it must also have a closing right parenthesis.
It you want to enter negative 5, you use the change sign (-) not the regular MINUS sign.
These are exemples of instances where you get a syntax error. For every new type of calculation you have to perform, read the exemple in the manual to find out which must be entered first: the number or the function.
Hope it helps.
