    Question VF2 Very Long Tool Change Delay, Over a Minute.

    Hello,

    We have been working on an older ('00) VF2 that has had some issues.
    Got them all save one. If I initiate a tool change in MDI, M06Tblah blah, the Z goes to where it needs to, orients, nothing for 1 minute 21 seconds, then zip-zap, normal tool change.
    "Running" is displayed during this time and once the change is complete, "Program End" is displayed.
    Same thing during "Power Up / Restart".

    I've looked around and read something about parameter 601 Tool Change Delay but can't find it on this mill.
    Is there a secret door, handshake, or some such thing to get access to this parameter? Am I looking in the wrong spot?

    TIA,

    H.R.

    Ok, I found the problem.
    Somewhere along the line a few parameters got scrambled.
    143 - DRAW BAR Z VEL CLMP: should be 250000, was 537120912.
    222 - ROTARY AXIS INCRMNT: should be 0, was 134217728.
    223 - AIR TC DOOR DELAY: should be 0, was 4096.
    306 - POCKET UP/DN DELAY: should be 0, was 134217728.

    222 & 223 are for Horizontal mills.

    Have no idea how it happened but it did.
