This seems to show that there are only trivial solutions for 1<=t<=90000
Timing[
Select[Table[
PowersRepresentations[t^2, 3, 10], {t, 1, 90000}], #1 != {} & ]]
{0.8722430000000259, {{{0, 0, 1}}, {{0, 0, 2}}, {{0, 0,
3}}, {{0, 0, 4}}, {{0, 0, 5}}, {{0, 0, 6}}, {{0, 0, 7}},
{{0, 0, 8}}, {{0, 0, 9}}}}
The algorithm basically uses "brute force" so you will start getting overflows for very large t.
