I assume you already tried to do what is said in the window: To move the tip of your milling bit (which should be in the collet of your milling motor) to a position about 1/4" (~6 mm) above the Touch Probe using the motion keys, or with your joystick aka gamepad?
And you also moved X and Y so that the milling bit is over the touch probe?
I have tried and still no luck.
what do you mean by this? Can you move X, Y and Z?
I can move xyz and have gone over it a few time but has not fixed issue.
do you mean you can not lower Z as much so that it comes close to the probe?
the z get stuck about 1 1/2 away from probe.
can you post a photo of the situation?
will do. as soon as i can.
welcome to the forum.
thank you for your help
Z gets stuck 1 1/2 away from the probe?!
The pop up you posted says “make sure the tip of the bit is 1/4 away (or closer) to the probe block before probing. The fact that you say it’s 1 1/2 away means you were way to far away to start.
sorry for the confusion do you all “onefinity” have a number to call to get these tyes of issuse resolved. sorry but i do not have time for the back and forth of these forum. no disrespect
please post a photo of the machine (where milling motor, milling bit, Z gantry and Touch Probe can be seen, in the situation where this popup appears).
I will as soon as i get a chance too.

Had this happen once shortly after I got my machine. Check your firmware. Then power cycle and re-home the machine fixed the problem for me.
i did all that …
firm wear on point
then i see that one of my rails has rust on it too.
just got it mid april…
Not sure what to do about your probe but if you keep a thin coat of oil on the rails rust won’t form.
Without the probe or project piece on the wasteboard, how low can you get the bit? Can you reach the wasteboard? Just wondering if you are hitting the lower limit. Do you by chance have the Z carriage mounted in the highest position? I think 1F tells us to mount the Z carriage to the lowest position for spoilboard flattening, and then one position higher for normal ops. If you have a stiffy bar, they say to make sure you never attach Z carriage to that top position. Just my .02. A good picture posted on this forum will probably solve the mystery in a hurry.
