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.

### How do I graph a simple equation, 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

### Whenever i try to link my calculator with other ones it always says error in xmit. no matter what i do

Hello,
Hope it helps.

How can I troubleshoot an Error in Xmit error message when transferring data between two graphing calculators?

The Error in Xmit error message is returned when a connection cannot be established between two calculators when attempting to transfer data. There are several factors that can contribute to this error message.
• The calculators being connected are not compatible for data transfer.
• The data cable is not firmly connected to both units.
• The receiving calculator is not in receive mode.
• The I/O port on one of the graphing calculators is damaged.
The procedure for connecting two graphing calculators is as follows:

• Connect the data cable to the I/O port of each unit. The cable will fit tightly in the I/O port and snap into place. If silver from the cable is visible, the cable is not properly connected.
• Place the receiving graphing calculator on "Receive"
• Place the sending unit on "Transmit" or "Send" from the Link menu.

Once the data has been selected, the transfer will commence accordingly.

The data transfer protocols for graphing calculator is as follows:

• TI-73 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-73, TI-82, TI-83, and TI-83 Plus.
• TI-82 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-82.
• TI-83 - Link allows data sharing with the TI-82, TI-83 family calculator, and TI-84 Plus family calculator.
• TI-83 Plus/TI-84 Plus family- Link allows data sharing with another TI-82, TI-83 family calculator, and TI-84 Plus family calculator.
• TI-85 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-85(To a TI-86. Not From a TI-86).
• TI-86 - Link allows data sharing with another TI-86 and from a TI-85 to a TI-86.
• TI-89 family- Link allows data sharing with another TI-89 family calculator and from a TI-92 family calculator.
• TI-92 family- Link allows data sharing with another TI-92 family calculator and from a TI-89 family calculator.
• Voyage™ 200 - Link allows data sharing with another Voyage 200 and TI-92 family calculator.

If the cable does not fit properly into the I/O port, or if the I/O port appears to be damaged (broken or separated plastic, obstruction inside the port), call 1-800-TI-CARES (1-800-842-2737) M-TH 8:00 AM - 7:00 PM FRI 10:00 AM - 7:00 PM Central Standard Time to speak to a representative or sending an email to [email protected].

### I am trying to graph and i am getting error 13 dimension how can i fix it?

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.

### Graphing

Hello,
If you do not get an error message, then the graph is out of range. Try to zoom out, or play with the window dimensions.
Hope it helps.

### Error 13 dimension

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

### Getting the Error 13 Dimension

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.
