After having the 1013 for a couple of days I started to get a Error 21 Electrical problem. I checked the site and they had a firmware there, not the right one, so it pooched the machine and it then gave a Version Error...error.
Sent an email to Oliver Tools and Judy sent me the 2.001 firmware and HMI file. I installed the firmware but not sure what to do with the HMI file as there are no instructions for that.
After installing the firmware, a couple things happened. The firmware is not exactly the same as the original that came with the machine. The original had speed choices of Low,Normal,High. This one has Low and High router, and Low and High carving.
The X and Y axis seem to have switched. All the jobs are rotated 90deg from what it was. (X is now the 13" axis of the table and Y is the 18" axis). (Update - Seems it may have always been like this. Ignore this part).
The origin when the machine homes is not the same.
The scale of the Y axis seems to be doubled of what it is supposed to be. So it is stretched along the Y axis.
The error 21 seems to be gone. So that's the good news.
Here is a set of instructions sent to me by Dan at Oliver Machinery back in August 2012 for how to install the HMI file on 1013. Just make sure you are using a clean USB stick when loading either update, you want only the one you are working on to be on the stick, then re-format the stick and load the other.
Maybe someone from Oliver can chime in as to what your display should read after successfully doing the updates, as I said this was sent to me in August 2012 so not sure if the versions are different now. Getting the updates done was the key to getting my machine up and running though because it would throw an error code every time I got it started up.
I'm stuck. Latest firmware,FIRMWARE2.002FH, gives me a version error. HMI installation I can't find the jumper on the circuit board to remove. Also get error 21 motion error after the version error. Anyone with a better walkthrough? Thank You
