    Late to the thread but I've had the same issue on my TNC355 control with the Z axis on startup when the control is cold (65°F or below). Mine never gets to the limit as it errors out with "Gross Position Error D". I now use a heater that I place next to the control for about an hour before startup and don't have any issues. I need to stop being lazy and take the control apart to find the problematic components. Would love to see pics of the damage if you have them scott_walker.

    That is exactly what happened mine. On initial inspection i thought it was a small 250mA fuse but it was actually a small transformer on the board had exploded and the flames had burnt the fuse out.

    I ended up finding a faulty board and was able to make one good board out of the two.

    Had a closer look at the program that i wrote earlier and it seems to be after a CC and C move if there is a linear move it writes a X,Y,Z line. I have edited the part to include a fillet where the straight line would be so it does away with it.

    Also another note. The Post writes M91 at the start and end of the program. Looked it up and it will move the Z axis towards the table. so will have to just edit that line out each time.

    Thanks for sharing the pics. I'll have to see if there are similarities between the TNC145 and TNC355 servo boards.

    I might be able to send you a post that I edited the radical wrong stupid idiot z move out of

    it is trying to move z to absolute zero I think, and on my machine it 'crashed' the z up. just hit the limit switch, but that does not happen. not an error message, actually hit the limit switch. first time in 27 years

    Scott, I have spares of those Bosch servo boards if you get further problems.
