I turned the machine on this morning and my page up and down arrows along w/ my r and l arrows wont move the gantry on my machine. Never had this problem before and I cant set the 0 point to run a program. When I fire up a program it moves fine but not when I try to to move it w/ the keyboard.The reset button and shutting down and re starting made no diff.The keyboard is working for other applications but not to move the machine
Can anyone help if they have had this problem before?I am in a hurry to make a part and a bit jammed up now
Thanks in advance!:confused:

Use the TAB key to get virtual MPG, use your mouse on the screen arrows.

Try resetting your hotkeys. Config>Hotkeys.

For what it's worth I had the same issue more or less but with my page down button for the Z axis. Using the Jogging flyout window I could move the Z both +- but not with the page down. I completely forgot about being able to reset the HOT KEYS!!!
