Thanks for responding. No, I finally got it working. It turned out to be a preset option on the controller that disables all the buttons when active. I disabled it and everything is working.
There is one thing you may be able to help me with. I have optioned all the buttons but I cant figure out how to option the controller to work the z axis touch probe. Any advice on how to get it working would be greatly appreciated.

Regards
Richard

If you try and configure a button you will see a number of choices. I would likely have to add it as an option. I don't have a touch probe so I don't know how it is fired. Please explain exactly everything about it that you can think of. For example, how is it installed, what make/mfg is it, when the probe touches the bed what occurs. If I can get enough info to figure out what Mach3 is doing with it then I may be able to watch for that code and handle it. Then it could be added as an option. The only other thing I can think of is for you to write a custom Macro (1-3) and then you can assign it to a button.

Basically you attach 5v from a bob to the plate and the router bit is grounded.
When it touches the  plate, it accounts for the thickness of the plate and sets a zero for the work surface.  I know technically that doesn't tell you much but that is basically how it works. I have been starting it using the mouse and clicking on the start arrow. 
I know your busy, if its not something simply don't spend allot  of time on it. Just though
it might be something simple I was overlooking. Thanks again for the reply.
