Ok we kind wondered off...

I want to use one button to home 3 axis. XY and Z. I have the ports and pins set correctly, including the A it is not activated in mach.

The problem is if you referance 1 axis at a time you can get through all 3, but if you ref all home it will start the sequance and then after hitting the Z home, it refuses to go any further...

All axis are still active with galil, there is no galil fault.

If I hit the ESC key it will not continue because the sequance was stopped.. If you hit ref all home again it will back off the switch and stop.. Then I haave to hit ESC again... It will do the samething with X then Y...

You can ref all home if you do it 1 axis at a time, in the setting screen.... No problems at all that way...

It is not really a problem if I can not get the ONE button approach to work, UNLESS the problem can be somewhere else??? Like refrancing during a tool change(manual), during a long program just to make sure 100% each segment is correct... It is a really pain to have a 12, 18, or even a 24 hour program loose position...

Hey THANKS 4 all the help in advance. I'll need more than you'll ever expect!!!

Hello,
I have a Galil here and a router that I run it with .. I will connect it up and home the machine and tell you if I see any trouble here. This has worked in the past and I have no idea why it is not working for you now.. So if you could please be sure you are running rev 3.041 and I will see if I can have it happen to me.
Thanks
Brian

Thanks

Mine still hangs every now and then after updating to R3.041. It seems to do it less if I home V and U first.

I think it maybe related to a program end?

What exactly is the best program end???? that'll stop any modal functions, that could still be active?

I've seen the cancellations commonly addressed in the Initialization string of the program.
I suppose you could include them in the M30 macro, or make up a custom macro to suit.
You can set a few to M30 in Config.
Just thinking out loud here.

I was refering to the homing sequence hitting the home switch and not backing off. Not sure if the Modal state of G codes would apply to this. I am also homing the axis one at a time with different buttons.
