MATLAB crashes when i use plot command

Asked by Marco
on 12 Jul 2011
Hello, as I already said in the title, MATLAB(version R2007a) simply crashes everytime I use the command plot, regardless of the arguments of the function. It is enough to write >> plot to make the program crash 100%. Apparently all other functions are running without problems.
This never happened before yesterday, the program had been working smoothly for months.(since I installed it) I am running MATLAB on a MacBook Pro with Mac OSX Snow Leopard. I presume the problem is due to the automatic software update that my mac did yesterday morning.
I tried to reinstall the program but nothing changed. Additionally, I found 5-6 files in the Documents folder about some java error logs... Any clue about how I should behave to solve the problem? Thank you very much in advance

Mathworks published a work-around for this problem, http://www.mathworks.com/support/solutions/en/data/1-F37IJB/
As I was looking around the net this evening on an unrelated topic, I might perhaps have found the cause, in a deliberate Apple Java incompatability. Look down to Comment 14 in this discussion

Hi,
I did not experience such problems. It seems it has to do with the Java update, and not Snow Leopard itself.
I am using 10.6.8 and R2009b without any problems.
Regards, Florin

I couldn't find any specific bug report that relates to what you're seeing, but I do remember snow leopard not getting along with MATLAB very well.
I would recommend calling tech support.
Also, does
peaks
or
contour(magic(10))
work? (other things that require figures)
