Easy fix, Go to Maintenance mode Turn on Maintenance mode, select Shutter, move the shutter to close position. Be careful because if you move the shutter to close position and it strokes out you will get a 7th Axis alarm. Get it real close to the closed postion and set parameter 1815 7th axis APZ to 1 if it is already 1 put it to zero and it will require you turn cycle the power on the machine, go back to 1815 and put 7th APZ back to 1 and she will be set to home postion.
