hi all, i have a new to me Motoman UP6 with a XRC controller. i am pretty new to robots, this is my 2nd robot, and none of them work.
so i hooked up the UP6 last night for the first time. i think the unit has been sitting for several years in a hot house warehouse. long story short. the robot fired up last night ok and as expected had a battery alarm. I had removed the 2 cell battery from the arm to work on making a new one. i put together a 2 cell battery and all seemed good with the battery. Installed the battery and powered up the XRC, and the pendant said self diagnostics, and then after a few seconds the pendant teach screen went to blue. and nothing. The brake release system still works, the keypad still beeps, but stays blue.
next i unplugged the pendant with the unit under power and plugged it back in the screen comes back on and says booting and then never finishes booting. while booting several pendant keys are lit up.
So i either get a short diagnostics screen then blue, or forever booting
any ideas are appreciated.
i have had pretty good luck with motoman support, but they are closed until monday,
