    There is another battery in the controller. You have to open back cover behind the crt screen and pull out the circuit board.

    Hello,

    Since last couple of days my Fidia F1.0191 machine has the same problem. It loses instantly the PLC program after power off. I am having an engineer coming next week to check it. I will let you know. He did informed me that it can be serious since chips and other integrated circuits from that time are very hard to find. Off topic I am wondering if you can tell me how do you use the DNC or serial connection on your machine to transfer programs. I know on you have to transfer via TT0 but it wont let me access it.
    Thanks

    Hello,
    I got a used Cortini M500 3years ago.Machine was out of operation and I repaired the spindle drive,Y axis ball screw bearing,lubrication tubes of X axis,flattened the work table and many other problems on the machine.
    The problem of loosing PLC program started from the first startup of the machine,most days starting the machine in mornings when it was shutt down last day afternoon the PLC program was OK,but if we started less than 2or 3 hours after shutt down the PLC program was lost.
    Its about 2 months that we loose PLC program every day.
    I think there is a hardware failure in the CPU board,I have discussed this to a technition ,the CPU board must be cheked.I am looking for a suitable time to do this.
    It took me about 2 month to solve the DNC problems of the machine.I have to study my records and will explain it to you in details.

    Hi,
    A cable with two 9 pin RS232 connectors is needed.
    One to your PC and the other to SLU2 on your machine.
    You must run FIDIA DNC software on your PC then WKS connects to your PC.
    I can mail you wiring of cable+DNC software+SLU2 board settings if you need.
