I have been using my inc machine for several years now shut it down yesterday, started it up today loaded my program  turned on the controller didn't turn on so i opened it up changed the fuse, put everything back together, started the controller tried using the keyboard keys
for the x,y,and z axis nothing happened so i spent may hold day trying to figure out how or what happened I can move the machine with the jog control and everything works fine but the keyboard controls are of no use. What am I missing .
Thanks

Have you accidentally clicked on the   Jog ON/OFF Ctrl-Alt-J   button ?

Thanks !  I gave that a try it didn't seem to work on my key board i pressed the Cltr - Alt keys  i know the key board is working because i can use the tab button to bring up the jog control. other than pressing the Cltr- Alt button i tried several ways and something did happen it went up in the z axis but when i stopped it and tried the other direction nothing happened it didn't even respond to the up key anymore.

On the Mach3 main screen is the Jog ON/OFF button illuminated (green around border) ?
