    Check for E-stop circuit plug connection. If unplugged by jarring, CNC will not boot. Of course look for any other visible damage to control panel by impact.
    Experience is what you get just after you needed it.

    Thanks to you all for response, please refer to details in attached image, sorry that i did not mention OSP details before
    Actually we found dust on CPU, cleaned and then booted up
    As u r aware, OS is windows Xp with I think 40GB Laptop Hard disk
    In Siemens 840D, we used to take clone of such Hard disk using Norton Ghost or Acronis Software and load the clone to fresh harddisk
    Then we used to connect fresh hard disk on the machine and keep machine hard disk as spare
    Please let us know if the same is possible in Okuma controller because local engineers are not very sure about and they are saying few files might get lost in the process of Imaging
    Regards

    Hi Rishi
    OSR P200 works from under Windows XP
    The standard image Hard disk creation procedure
    You can use the Norton Ghost or Acronis Software
    But first you need to backup the machine parameters

    Starting Windows XP Only
    If you are using the Maintenance Tools or Windows Explorer, it is necessary to start Windows XP
    only. [Outline Procedure]
    (1) Press the Power button from the Off state.
    (2) If the pointer such as is displayed on the Windows XP start screen , hold down the left side
    SHIFT key. (Immediately after cursor's being displayed)
    The Logon screen will be displayed. The defaults are as follows.
    User Name : Administrator
    Password : okuma + osp (all small letters).
    Press "OK" while holding down the SHIFT key to log on.
    (Push "SHIFT" at the same time as pushing "OK".)
    (3) Windows XP will start up without the NC equipment starting
    Double click on the following file in the Explorer screen and start the Maintenance Tool.
    C:\OSP-P\TOOLS\MaintenanceTool.exe
    The Maintenance Tool Menu screen will be displayed
    A shortcut will appear on the desktop MaintenanceTool

    Re: Okuma VMC Model MB56VBR

    Thanks for detailed steps, we have already backed up Machine Parameters as per procedure shared by Okuma
    Regarding hard disk image, can we take out Hard disk of the machine, connect in stand alone PC and then clone Machine Hard disk using Norton or Acronis & finally restore this image to fresh hard disk and connect newly loaded Hard disk on the machine?
    Regards

    Hi Rishi

    Answer: Yes, you can perform this procedure.
    Usually there are three discs with the new machine
    Disc 1 Windows XP
    Disk 2 OSP
    Disk 3 Model of the machine, if CAS is installed on the machine
    These three discs are enough to restore the machine to working position.

    I would recommend against imaging the hard disk. The machine is constantly updating registers for things such as tool changes, pallet indexes, timers, counters, offsets, Zero sets, etc. so when you take the "snapshot" you are almost guaranteeing that your backup will be no good. Like Sergeyrusa said, the machine comes with recovery disks. User them as primary recovery tool. If you are going to do an update to the system, first do a backup, then update, then restore. That will give you the best chance of a flawless recovery. In the event of a hard disk failure, use the 3 disks and then your last backup. Yes it's a good idea to backup regularly. The machine also has a "DATA PIP" function for capturing settings. This can also allow you to capture setup information for each job, so you may want to read up on it. It can save tons of time when changing between jobs. It creates an editable text file for you that can save nearly every setting in the machine. I keep a copy of this TOP file on my computer as a regular snapshot as well. That way you can always look up a setting in the text file to see over time if anything changed from it's original settings. TOP stands for Tools, Offsets, and Parameters. It can be your good friend once you get to know it.

    Best regards,
    Experience is what you get just after you needed it.
