  • Error: Waiting for in position

    Can't run DCC, get error message "waiting for in position". Anyone familiar with this? Seems to happen more often when machine has been shutdown for a while then restarted.

    what brand?

    What make and model of machine is this?

    This generally means that the commanded position has not been reached, so it keeps waiting, but the controller is not accurate enough to move it any more. Its a catch-22.

    Nudge the machine with your finger to see if it helps it along. It might mean the the electronics require some tuning or adjustment. . .

      It's a B&S 9-12-9 with a sharp32 controller. I can usually get it going by shutting it down and restarting it a few times, but there is obviously a problem with the machine. Thanks for your response!

        I have the same issue

        Every hit in "Z" that the machine takes on DCC mode not only PC Dmis will display "waiting for in position" and stops, but also the probe wouldn't back up (retract).
        Can anyone advise please?

        thank you

            You MAY have a wrap bad in the drive motor. I just started getting this error, it's a Z axis issue for me, all I have to do is RUB MY FINGER on the drive rod while hitting "continue" and it takes right off.

                Yep.... and your comment made it full
                When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

                  Darin, Gasty and Matt,

                  Has this been going on for sometime or is it something new?

                  Never mind I see it is a older post.

                      Hi All
                      I realise this is an old thread, but i'm wondering if a solution was found for the 'waiting for in position' error.
                      I'm having the same problem with a Tesa XCEL 765 that's about twenty years old.
                      Any help greatly appreciated.

                        Well - having disconnected the Z axis drive I found that the drive elements themselves were all very clean and free moving. However, I could hardly move the axis unit up and down by hand, so I adjusted some of the air bearings and it has been working fine since. I wasn't very scientific about my adjustments so I have to run some verification programs to see how it looks.
