    Stylus suddenly not working after leaving tracer on for a day

    Hi I have a Huvitz glazing machine. Recently found the stylus can’t trace frames anymore as the stylus just doesn’t go high enough and gets stuck, comes back down(can’t reach the frame)
    Iv tried moving the stylus around while shut. Also tried calibrating it however again gets stuck and a error appearing
    Any idea how to fix this?

    Have you shut down the unit and literally disconnected it from mains power? "Shut down" to most people means "off". However, for many things now, that isn't actually "off" it's a sort of "very deep sleep" that actually still keeps some circuits powered. If you want to truly shut down something these days, you have to disconnect it from power. I'd probably disconnect it from mains, hold the power button/flip the switch to on for at a good 15-30 seconds to discharge any capacitors in the system, release the button/flip the switch back to off, and then leave it to sit for at least 45 minutes (this is how long it takes for any residual power in things called "static" circuits to dissipate). If you are still having trouble at that point I'd call in for service, because its really hard to say what is going on. It could easily be an electromechanical failure, which is something only a service tech. could handle.
