Yes the Jog ON/OFF is "green".

Couple more clues. I can get the Z DRO to change with the Page Up/Down keys. I can get the X and Y DRO to change with the arrow keys. The gantry does not move though.

I took screen shots of all the main pages. See them here... https://imgur.com/a/nudEu

Thanks for taking a look at this.
We have a CNC Router Parts PRO4896 set up and running Mach3 version R3.043.066 on a Windows 7 laptop. We've never had any issues with this set up before.

I did a cut a couple weeks and ago and everything worked fine until it returned zero at the end of the cut. I couldn't get Mach3 to raise the Z to take the bit out of the router but didn't think much of it. Since then I cannot get Mach3 to move the gantry with the keyboard.

I can manually input coordinates into the X/Y/Z and use the "Go To Zero" button. I can also get the Z to move using the "Auto Tool Zero" with the puck.

I can not get the gantry to move with the arrow/number pad/page up-down keys.
I can't get the gantry to move to manually input coordinates with the "Go To" button.

I should mention I'm the "new guy" with this machine. So whatever answer or ideas you give will probably have to be dumbed down.

Thanks

There's no change on the Mach3 screen at all. It's like the software isn't responding to the keyboard.

And the keyboard is working and number lock is on, verified by typing some text/numbers in a Word Pad file).

I did a cut a couple weeks and ago and everything worked fine until it returned zero at the end of the cut. I couldn't get Mach3 to raise the Z to take the bit out of the router but didn't think much of it. Today I got everything set up and got no response. I was trying to set the X and Y and no movement. This is true for the X,Y or Z. I’ve not knowingly changed any settings in Mach3. I re-seated the connection between the laptop and the control box on both ends. Everything in the control box looks to be good. There's no obvious error messages or warnings from the software.

I should mention I'm the "new guy" with this machine. The person who ran it most of the time has left. I'm attaching a screenshot of the Mach3 screen in case I'm forgetting some simple switch/button/etc.

Again thanks for taking a look.
