In my problem, I need to plot a figure in a relatively small region of the $x$ axis, e.g.,

 ListPlot[{RandomReal[#] + 10^4, 
   RandomReal[#]} & /@ (Range[100] 10^-10), Frame -> True, Axes -> False]

and the figure is displayed properly, but all the tick marks have the same label:

Mathematica graphics

Is there any clever way to get rid of this problem?

You can define your own function for FrameTicks :

ticks[min_, max_] := {#, NumberForm[#, 20]} & /@ 
  N[FindDivisions[{min, max}, 5]]

ListPlot[{RandomReal[#] + 10^4, 
    RandomReal[#]} & /@ (Range[100] 10^-10), Frame -> True, 
 FrameTicks -> {{Automatic, None}, {ticks, None}}]

Mathematica graphics

Just choose your own preferred presentation format of the given values...

ticks[min_, max_] := {#, Grid[{{min}, {"+"}, {# - min}}]} & /@ 
  N[FindDivisions[{min, max}, 5]]

ListPlot[{RandomReal[#] + 10^4, 
    RandomReal[#]} & /@ (Range[100] 10^-10), Frame -> True, 
 FrameTicks -> {{Automatic, None}, {ticks, None}},FrameStyle->Medium]

Mathematica graphics

ListPlot[{RandomReal[#] + 10^4, RandomReal[#]} & /@ (Range[100] 10^-10), Frame -> True, 
          Axes -> False, FrameLabel -> {"x - 10^4", "y"}] /. 
          List[x_, y_] /; x > 10000 -> List[x - 10000, y]

    $\begingroup$ i'm sure it'a a way to solve it. $\endgroup$ – yulinlinyu May 7 '12 at 13:05
