Ok i had the same problem- If i remember correctly my "window" was messed up. Check it out... If not i always pull the "take batteries out while on" trick which resets the ram.

I think I pushed a button [2ND][+], and [ClrAllLIsts]. After that, I tried to draw graphs, but when I push the [GRAPH] button or [ZOOM][5]/[6], it doesn't make any graph! What should I do...??

You do not say that you opened the Y= editor and typed in at least one function and THEN pressed Graph. If you do not enter a function, all you will get are the axes (if the calculator is configured to display the axes.
1. Open the Y= editor.
2. Type in a function EXample y=2X+1 (To type X press the [X,T, Theta, n] key)
3. Press ENTER to validate the function.
4. Press the GRAPH button.
5. If you do not see a straigt line press the ZOOM button
6. Select ZoomSTD

My TI 84 plus silver: whenever I push the graph button the message ERR: Syntax 1:quit 2: goto appear on screen please help

Press the Y= button.

There are several possibilities:

1) Scroll through all equations, Y1 through Y9 and Y0. Make sure they are cleared.
2) The equation you typed in is not entered correctly.
3) Make sure Plot 1, Plot 2, and Plot 3 are NOT highlighted.

When graphing, after a formula is entered and the graph button is pushed, all I get is "ERR: WINDOW RANGE" What needs to be done?

Start by pressing ZOOM (the center function key on the very top row of the keyboard, just below the display) and select 6:ZStandard. This will set the window range to the standard default. After that, you can either zoom in on an area of interest or press WINDOW (just to the left of the ZOOM key) and enter in the window range.

Getting ERR: INVALID DIM when pressing the Graph button

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.

How do I set it to factory default settings? When I want to graph or want to do a zoom fit I get a ERR:SYNTAX 1:quit

Seems unlikely that you get a syntax error for both graphing and Zooming. Probably the error is in the function you are trying to graph.

To reset the RAM,
Press [2nd]MEM][7:Reset][1:All Ram][2:Reset] [ENTER]
Calculator answers with Ram Cleared.
Press [CLEAR] button to erase the above message.

Once Ram is cleared, open the [Y=] function editor and at the Y1= line, enter [X,T, theta, n] key or [ALPHA][X], to draw the simple function Y1=X.
If that works, that means your calculator is OK.

This usually happens after the statistical graphs have been used. You should deactivate them. Press [2nd][Y=] (STAT PLOT). Select [4:PlotsOff] [ENTER]. Calculator echoes Done on main screen.
Restart your graphs.

My Graphing calculator has no x or y axis. Its all Blank.

Press the 2nd Button then the ZOOM button. Make sure that AxesOn is highlighted. If not, move your cursor down until you on AxesOn and press ENTER.

If AxesOn is highlighted, then it is probably your window. Press ZOOM, then 6.

Entering inequalities into TI-84 to graph

I think you should get a Texas Instruments calculator and push the 'y=' button then put the equation like '2x+4' in the y1 area. You can put the X by using the variable botton. I hope my english makes sense I am not a native speaker.
