If you press the PgUp button does the axis go up and does the Z DRO go in a positive direction?

Ok so if you are at Zero in the Z and you command a move to Z1 it goes down? If that is correct then you need to reverse your axis as Z1 should be up and Z-1 would be down. To change the direction go to Config menu then Homing and Limits page and then reverse for the Z axis.
