**TI-83/84 Troubleshooting (Stan Brown,
Oak Road Systems)**

http://oakroadsystems.com/math/ti83oops.htm

**Error Messages**: Syntax, Window
Range, Dim Mismatch, Invalid Dim. **List Troubles**: I've lost a list
from the STAT EDIT screen, I can't clear the numbers from a list, I left out a
number from my list. **Graphing Troubles**: My screen is blank, except
maybe for the axes and the grid, My screen is covered with horizontal or
vertical lines, My screen is completely dark, every pixel filled in, There are
no tick marks on my graph, An extra line or curve appears on my graph, I can't
graph more than one equation at a time, My normal distribution from SHADENORM
looks wrong.

**Other Troubles**: My screen is too
light or too dark, Where's the correlation coefficient?
