    Thank you for your answers. I spoke with my supervisor and he told me thats something the electronics department will take care of, since they wanted to replace the cables ages ago. I forwarded your replies and they will test and repair the robot.

    Thanks again

    I checked the robot and it uses a 3 cell 10.8 V lithium battery pack and its dead, so I try to get my hands in a new one.

    The cables seem to be properly connected and the shielding of both the 1-3 and 4-6 are cable tied to the metal bracket. I didn't pull out any of the individual cables though because they felt somewhat brittle and fragile and I didn't want to break them just yet.

    The last time the robot was in service (bout 6-8 months ago) it was able to function and since then it wasnt moved or turned on so I doubt that the cables somehow broke during that time.

    Thanks for the fast replies.

    It's a S4C plus M2000 controller and the 38031 comes up directly after the controller gets powered on. When I try to jog either 20054 or 20076 pop up immediately with 20054 happening most of the time.

    I will check the cables today and see what type of battery I have.

    Hey guys,

    I was tasked with putting an IRB 140 with a S4C Controller back into service at my university. Now theres a load of errors on start and I'm not sure in which order I have to solve them to get this thing working again. The Robot was out of order for around half a year.

    Errors are:

    Error 38071 (battery is not gaining any charge after couple hours of the controller being switched on so I'll prolly have to get a new one right?)

    Error 38001 (this is caused by the dead battery I reckon)

    Error 38031 on axis 4,5 and 6 (if I understood correctly this means something is faulty, either broken or disconnected cables, dead smb or dead smb battery right?)

    Error 50242 on all axis (Unsync due to cfg)

    Error 50057 on axis 5 and 6 (joint not synchronized)

    Error 20032 on all axis (rev counter not updated)

    Error 10014 (fatal error) (this was listed several times on startup)


    What i could try up to this point: To fix 10014 I restarted the controller multiple times (Warm start) but it still kept popping up, though the amount of times it was listed after each restart varied between 1 and 3). I have no clue on how to resolve this due to the ambigous nature of this message. So I ignored it and tried my luck with 50242, 50057 and 20032.

    To fix those I tried jogging the robot in sync pose and update the rev counters. But when I pressed the enable motors button I got one of 2 error messages, either 20054 (not allowed when Programm is executing) or 20076 (fatal system error, therefore not allowed). 20054 happened way more often than the other one and I dont know what the cause of that is. There is no programm running (I cant even load one because of 10014) and I pressed the programm stop button (the black one in the bottom left corner) multiple times but that didnt help either.


    So I'm kinda at a loss at this point. Only thing I can do is to change the battery and check if I find some obvious faults with the cables. But because I cant move or jog the robot checking if theres a loose contact is somewhat difficult.


    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
