Make that program O9020 not O9890.....
Hello all, my 1993 Mighty VMC-510P with the Meldas 320 just took a crap and I had to reinitialize the control, put all the parameters back, and format the memory. In doing so the toolchange program/macro got erased. I have all the documentation to the machine with the parameters/settings but they left out this important information.
Does anybody have one of these up and running?? If so I am desperate for this program as I cannot get my machine going without it. It should be program O9890. It may be hidden but I can tell you how to access it. Or I believe you can just output that program whether it's visible under the File page or not. Please help! My machine is useless without it so any assistance is much appreciated!!

And here is how to find it: Access machine parameters, which is going to diagnosis screen, press the PLC I/F soft key. Then type in the following Device (1001) Data ( ) Mode (M) press input, they will disappear. Then press your parameter hard key. Under the Base parameters look for a parameter edlk_C and change it to a 0. Then go to the file page and it should be there.
I will pay someone for this guys!!
I have a Hartford VMC850 with a Meldas M520A controller, I was hoping it was similar because I'd like to tweak my toolchange program, but my edlk_c param is already 0 and I cannot access any macro programs. I'll dig out the manual and see if I can help you in any way.
Edit: Found a helpful website "If you inadvertently lose the FIXED CYCLES, they are still stored on EEPROM so all you need to do is change FIX_P to 1, go to INPUT screen and enter #(4) and press INPUT. The FIXED CYCLES will be loaded from EEPROM."
Not sure if that will help? http://machinetoolinfo.com/MITSUBISHI.html
This might be similar to the program you are seeking http://www.cnczone.com/forums/fanuc/...acting_up.html or something like http://machinetoolinfo.com/YANG.html
Good luck and let us know if any of this was helpful. Program 9001 on that last link looked promising

Taken from this forum: DynaMyte 4400M with Meldas M3 control
But for the 520 control.
The M codes in whichever program you try to use might need to be changed to your specific machine. Do you have a manual with the M codes listed for tool clamp, magazine in / out etc?
It's interesting you mentioned that you set your 520 edlk C off and still can't see the program. We have a newer Mighty Viper here with the 520 and the same thing happens, I can't see the tool change program at all. Weird thing is at some point I remember changing a setting or parameter on the same machine and seeing it executed step by step. But I don't remember what we did. I also found an identical machine to mine in Green Bay with the 320, and the shop was willing to help me, so I thought problem solved. But again they can't see or find the program either. Does anyone know why this is?? Is it written into the PLC side or something?
Forgot to mention, the mill is also known as a Mighty Comet, I probably should have added this in the title....
I'm 99% sure that Mighty Comet / Might Viper & Hartford are all the same MTB HARTFORD INDUSTRIAL CO., LTD-www.hartford.com.tw so you could try asking them for some info. Is there a little plaque on the machine from the builder? In all the google searches I do the Mighty Viper looks like my Hartford machine.
Hartford and Mighty Viper are just brand names, looks like Mighty Viper is the sticker they put on for the American market. Mighty USA even has the link to Hartford, which is actually She-Hong industrial which is the name I'd expect to see stamped on the back of your machine sheetmetal. Mighty USA
With this in mind, contacting She-Hong is probably your best bet.
I am in the process of talking to Mighty service techs but not sure how that is gonna go, depends on if they can dig up the program or not....
But in the meantime, for anyone that has one of these Comets with the 320M, or can get access to the correct program from it, I will Paypal you $250 (providing it works of course). I need it that bad. Let me know if anyone can help.
