Guide Probe Motion Failure

Problem(s) Encountered:

The guide probe stopped responding and would not leave it''s current location.

I followed the instructions here and reset the system:

I did not get a chance to check if it solved the problem as high humidity

caused me to close up.


Tested out the guide probe this morning and still found it to not be functioning properly.  Tried closing the GUI and power cycling the MIS.  After this, I was able to move the guide probe again, but it would not travel all the way to the demanded values.  Thankfully, OSMOS allows for access to the guide probe so I checked and found that the probe was in a very odd position.  While the GUI registered that it was at the origin, it was actually so far north that I could not reach the motor mic.  It was clearly lost.  On the xmis2 GUI, I reset the MIS by 2.4m Setup>Reset MIS which drove the guide probe back to its home position.  It now appears to function as expected.
