What Have I done?
« on: November 05, 2006, 08:44:59 AM »
I am getting an Abnormal flashing button with a comment about "Axis are not refed to normal condition". Somehow I started this and now can't figure out how to correct the problem. OK, I am not sure what it means or what I did to cause it.

Can anyone help?

Is it doing this while homing? What had you changed, if any thing when it started this? Any settings?
;D If you could see the things I have in my head, you would be laughing too. ;D

Its flashing all the time with this warning. I am just not sure what I changed, was just setting up my mill when it started. I have a sherline with Xylotex board, no switches and in the Diagnostics page there are no lights.

I printed off the Mach3 Mill Manual but can't find anything on it.

I have not seen this. But then again I'm pretty new. Can you get the machine to home?

Hi, Jim

This is a warning ( Abnormal/Normal Condition) Yellow/Green Flashing,  When you get everything setup and working the way you want it, you can double click on it and a window will pop-up "Normalcy monitoring"  asking reset normal monitoring Yes/No.

You probally changed something axis Port's Pins, recheck every thing is set/working properly including axis ref home...........
then double click and click yes, Then you've established a normal condition.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Sir Chip
Well as long as I am showing my stupidity, why in my screens does the x y and z arrow show up below my table outline? In the "program run" screen with table display on, the table outline is almost at the top and the coloured arrows is almost at the bottom.

Hold down the right mouse button and move the mouse, this should let you move the screen to suit. Holding down the left will allow you to tilt and scrolling the wheel (if you have one) will zoom in and out.
