    For the SRVO-051 my R-J3 book says:

    1. Replace the servo amplifier.
    2. If this does not clear the alarm, verify that all connectors are securely connected.

    You may want to take another look at those cables and connectors.

    You can change the sensitivity of collision guard programatically. In the collision guard setup you have to set a register to use for sensitivity. Use it to decrease sensitivity when interacting with the chuck and then increase sensitivity when done.

    1: R[13:Col Guard Sensitivity]=75
    2: Col Guard Adjust
    3: Blah
    4: Blah
    5: Blah
    6: R[13:Col Guard Sensitivity]=100
    7: Col Guard Adjust

    I know this is not exactly what you're looking for, but it will give you more control over when the robot stops due to collision detections.

    I also have several RJ3s with various versions of HandlingTool. None of them have the IF(...) statement.

    Alternatively you could use a program call

    1: IF R[1]<>1 OR R[2]<>1, CALL PRG001

    1: DO[1]=ON

    Depending on what you are doing with your process, you can add other lines in PRG001 to do whatever else happens along with the output turning on. Then you can potentially call this in other programs as well.

    [shadow=red,left]3. There may be a way (i am not sure) to have a pop-up occur on the TP which will prompt the user to select a program.[/shadow]

    There is a way to do this. I think you have to have the Menu Utility option. An Operator Entry menu and/or List menu will do this. The Operator Entry menu can be configured to accept various types of data such as boolean, numeric, etc. The List menu can be configured to list up to 8 items or so that can be selected.

    Does your eoat turn with axis 6? I sometimes see this when a bearing fails in my gripper and there is too much friction at low jog speeds.

    The other thing that comes to mind is that your brake may be sticking after the momentary power loss when you turn the pendant on.
