    I have had that type i/o unit come unplugged. The individual units I mean. As you can imagine you lose everything on that unit. See if reseating them gets you anywhere.

    Fanuc 21i-MB hang problem

    If you contact Fanuc, they can help you diagnose it. I have an 18iMB here that was doing strange things on Mondays before finally evolving into a black screen and showing 900 rom parity.

    Fanuc 16M in HMC, Y axis red cap encoder issue.

    TOS (omnitrade canada variant) 5 axis horizontal cnc mill - 1991 fanuc 15m need ladder and will pay
