When I try to graph an equation I get the Error 13 Dimension. I just replaced the batteries, but I'm not sure where I have to fix the problem.

This just happened to me too after i tried to plot some statistics. Press 2nd, +(STAT), then F3 for plot and see that you have all the STAT PLOTS turned off.

You have to push "Graph", then go up to the "plot 1" above the "\Y1=", and then push enter. That should solve it.

Y= -x -4x +5

If you don't have any settings that you don't mind resetting, you can press 2nd, 3 (mem), F3 (reset), then pick DFLTS (defaults), then pick yes. It'll reset the settings of the calculator without wiping out your programs or variables and it should fix the dimension problem. If that doesn't fix it, you probably have a bad equation or your calculator is not working right.

This was very helpful. I have been restricted to using my friend's calculator for graphing because of this problem and now I can use my own. And it's true. It did not erase any of my programs. GREAT advice.

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

Enter the equation as 2*X+3. Make sure that the name of the independent variable X in the equation and that on the INDEP:X line are both Capital letters or both lowercase letters.

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 "2ND" "STAT PLOT" and then select 4:PlotsOff.

If this doesn't do it, please reply to this post and give a sample equation that causes this error.

From the manual:

You entered an argument with an inappropriate dimension.

You entered a matrix or vector dimension less than 1 or greater than 255 or a non-integer.

You attempted to invert a matrix that is not a square matrix.

If you can't figure it out from here, please reply to this post telling us what you were graphing or attempting to graph when you got this error.

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.

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.

Hello,

You were lucky not to see the dimension problem with the TI83Plus.

To get rid of the message, reset you calculator to DEFAULT configuration. It will erase nay garbage in the registers and you can draw your graph.

Hope it helps

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.

I reset as Slimey suggested and now it says error 14 undefined

When I try to graph something I also get the error 13 dimension message and the goto above f1 does not show up either.
