Thanks.

    Try a PM to Gus. he has a bunch of these machines.
    I know that under the MOD key is where you can turn the 4th On or OFF, select display size, type of communications, access parameters etc.
    But I need to be in front of a machine and write down what I do instinctively.

    I think you have a parameter mis set needs to have 4th axis disabled

    That's what we are thinking. Just found out they the company we bought this from was using a rotary table so the 4Th axis was in use. We are trying to locate a parameter list for this machine also a programing manual for the controller. Can't seem to find how to get into the main parameters.

    Thanks

    there are manuals on the heidenhain website that should tell you which parameters are which

    After the machine has powered up-
    press the MOD key and cursor up to "user parameters"
    Press enter-
    cursor up to "XYZ=0 XYZB=8"
    Press "0" to turn off the forth axis
    Press enter
    Press "end block"
