firstly, check "help tics". You will see that tics() takes three
parameters: the axis (x or y), the positions vector and the labels
vector. To clean up all tic marks you should have used,

tics('y', [0], [' ']);

where '0' could be replaced with anything. Use "tics('y')" to restore
the default tic marks. Beware that using "['']" as labels vector will
cause an error message.

Secondly, either reverse the commands order, i.e. run first all format
related commands and leave the plot() command to the end,

tics('y',[0], [' ']);

or use the replot() command to apply the changes made with format
related commands run after plotting the data,

tics('y',[0], [' ']);

hope this helps,
