HP50g Statistics Application - sam - 12-06-2007
I am new standard user for HP50g calculators. I am as familiar with programming on this calculator. I got the calculator via the company, so I choose the most expensive calculator. I mostly use it for it's statistics applications. Everything worked well until a week ago when I decided to use it for some financial calculations. Since then, I am unable to launch the Statistics application. Instead I get an error message that say BAD ARGUMENT TYPE! This happens immediately i try to launch the application. I have tried resetting the CAS, MODE, FLAGS, to their default values and nothing works.
Someone please help. If you hang out in owings mills, MD i'll buy you a beer. I am in bind, so any and all help is appreciated. Keep in mind I an not a seasoned user

I never used a 50g. Only 48gx. Have you tried to purge the Sigma DAT variable (the one containing your statistic data). Maybe it got corrupted somehow. But it should not result in a error message right from the start before processing the data. Strange.

Thank you for the response. No, I have not tried this. How exactly do I purge this Sigma DAT variable. There are very few resources on HP calc. troubleshooting, and none I could find about error messages. Please let me know. Thank you.

First step worked like a charm. Perfect! Thank you, Thank you. I live in Maryland and you are possibly in Italy. BUT I still owe you a beer. This really saved the day.
