Some Days Mach Just Hates Me....
« on: June 24, 2009, 12:40:48 PM »
I was working yesterday, and the cutter clogged, doing a "soft" crash on the machine - I hit FeedHold, then Stop.  Once cleared, I can no longer jog!  MDI commands, GoToZeroes, all work just fine.  But, none of the Jog keys work, the pendant doesn't work, etc.  What can disable jogging??  And why would hitting FeedHold then Stop cause this??  I've re-booted, powered off overnight, reloaded the screen set - No help.

I'm dead in the water here....

I imagine that you've already checked this, but could your "slow jog" percentage be set to zero?

If you jog with the shift key pressed (fast jog), does it work then?

OK, the real, physical keyboard jog keys work, and once I used those, the pendant came back to life.  All on-screen jog keys are still dead (I use a touchscreen).

It appears *only* continuous jog is affected, and only for on-screen jog controls - incremental works just fine on all axes, keyboard and pendant are now working fine.  If I press the on-screen jog keys repeatedly, the axes *do* move, eventually - Every 4 presses of a key, an axis will move 0.0001"!  Holding the key does nothing.

Somehow, at virtually the same time my machine crashed, the touchscreen driver spontaneously changed a setting.  I don't know what the setting does, but my guess is it makes any touch a brief click, hence holding the jog keys does an extremely short move in continuous mode.  I have no clue how/why the setting changed, but I'm now up and running again.  The second mystery is why Brian is unable to load my XML, even though it works just fine for me.  I guess some days Mach hates Brian more than me!  :-)

I've had something similar (I don't have a tuch screen, but the jogging dies) happen a lot.

Clicking on reset twice usually clears it.
