    I am hoping that someone can help with this problem, that i've never encounted before.
    When switching on our soljet 540, the tool carriage slams into the left of the machine, with great force. I tried a limit position setup, but still the same, befroe I can complete. The obvious error is 0010, but thats caused by the force of the contact.
    I am thinking a faulty motor. Anyone else have this problem

    thanks for looking

    I had changed the encoder strip, which I thought was the cause.
    the tool carriage really slams into the side, so that may cause further damage.
    this has baffled us here

    Have you recently upgraded the Firmware? Sounds like the machine thinks it is bigger than it is.

    after changing an encoder you have to do the limit initialization and calibrate you encoder. otherwise it's normal to get this result.

    If you need help to do it let me know.

    looks like it's trying to shoot off the end of the printer. Eeeesh.
