More than likely, you've put in a number in the xmin or xmax that is not correct. Example....you put in an xmin of 10 and an xmax of -10 which would be backwards. This could also happen in the ymin or y max.
The easiest way to fix this is to press zoom 6 which wil get you back to the default graph of xmin of -10, xmax of 10 and ymin of -10 and y max of 10.
If you can't see your graph on this screen and need to change the window, just be sure the number in the min for both x & y is smaller than the number in the max. You change your window size by pressing the window button.

You bet I do, provided
1. there are no hardware problems I am not aware of;
2. that you are willing to follow my instructions.
First thing to do before any new type of problem
1. Turn StatPlots OFF : press [2nd][STATPLOT][4:PlotsOff] [ENTER]
Second thing: Clear the statistical lists
2. Press [2nd][PGRM] DownArrow to point to ClrAllLists.
Third thing : Configure the graph type to be FUNCTION graph
4. Press [MODE]. If FUNC (on fourth line) is highlighted. Press [Y=] and start entering the functions.
5. If FUNC is not highlighted, use Down arrow till 4th line, highlight FUNC and press [ENTER]. Press Press [Y=] and start entering the functions.
Fourth thing: Enter function and select them for graphing
1. As you start entering the function Y1=, notice that the = sign becomes highlighted. Press [ENTER] when Y1 is typed in. Make sure the = sign for Y1 remains highlighted as cursor moves to Y2=.
2. Keep entering the functions and verifying that their = signs remain highlighted as cursor moves to another equation.
3. When finished press [ENTER]
4. Look at the graph style for each function: it is a bit of line to the left of each Y. Here is a picture of all the 7 styles.
To set a graph style, highlight the style to the left of the Y, and press [ENTER]. Each time you press [ENTER] you see a new style, in the order shown on picture.
Avoid the style of Y6, it is bubble, and as such will burst and disappear once graph is finished. Avoid also the triangular ones (for Y3 and Y4) they will shade areas of the graph, and may hide other functions.
Fifth thing: Graph Functions.
1. You can press [GRAPH] to see your graphs.
2. If one curve is missing (and you have not set its style to be rhe bubble), it may be due to the Window dimensions.
Sixth Thing: Set Window dimensions and Zoom.
1. Press [ZOOM][6:ZStandard] to use standard window dimensions.
2. If curve still missing, Press [ZOOM][3:Zoom Out] to zoom out so that you may be able to see a bigger range for the functions.
3. If necessary press [WINDOW] and set the Xmin, Xmax, Ymin,Ymax to values of your own.
Dimensions must obey the conditions: Xmin < Xmax, and Ymin < Ymax.
Hope that helps.

Turn the satistical plots OFF
Press [2nd][Y=] (STATPLOT). Select or enter 4: to execute the command [PlotsOff] [ENTER]
Clear the lists (statistical lists)
Press [2nd] (Catalog]. Press [PGRM] C. The cursor jumps to the first command in catalog that starts with C (The greek letters in names do not matter). Scroll down a bit to reach the command [ClrAllLists]. Select it and press [ENTER].
Try your graphs again.
If you still have problems, just reset the RAM:
Press [2nd][+] (MEM). Press 7 to select [Reset] then [1:All Ram][2:Reset]. Press [Clear] to erase the Ram Cleard message.
Now you should be able to draw the graphs.
Hope it helps.
Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: i want to graph a
You're trying to graph a function that does not involve stat plot features but the calculator probably thinks you are. You can correct this by turning off the stat plot features. Press "2ND" "STAT PLOT" and then select 4:PlotsOff.

There is no one good window range for all graphs, since graphs can have different areas of interest.
Press the ZOOM key, then select ZStandard. This will restore the window settings to the default range, which will at least allow the graph to be displayed. You can then change the window range and/or zoom as desired.
If this doesn't do it, please reply to this post, giving the function(s) you're trying to graph and your current window settings.
