[amayausers] Re: System Shutdown

Dorothy,
        The paperwork that comes with the CD (particularly the yellow sheet) 
tells
you about the Maintenance timers that need to be reset after loading this
software.  It's always a good idea to read the release notes that come with
the new software so that you'll know what to expect, provided everything
else is in check.

To continue....
I received the new software and installed it on my laptop. After the system
restarted I opened Amaya OS and powered up the Amaya. The first thing I get
is
a Maintenance Timer popup telling me the 100,000,000 Stitch Interval Timer
maintenance is due (I wish I had that many stitches under my belf--in fact,
I've
made a mental note to myself to adjust the timers on my desktop after I use
my
laptop so as to keep the timer counts correct). Calling....

The tech (mind you a different one, really didn't want to re-tell my whole
story but Chris was at lunch; this one was not as understanding) had me
reset
the maintenance timers....ran the design....same problem. I was told to
uninstall the software and re-install and then re-configure.

So I did. Note, after I powered up the system, the OS automatically loaded
the last design (is there a setting to not have this if I don't want it?)
Unfortunately before the trim on the 3rd I, the machine shut down. At least
this
time the OS still had my design and I was able to do a manual trim (before I
got
a XY not home error). But alas, the thread was not cut so I trimmed again
only
to have the thread bar run in to the needle while it was down...the needle
stayed down instead of returning to head up. I manually put it up under the
maintenance, head timing, head up.

So I decided to try the design at 1100 (after shutting down and restarting
everything)--only I didn't notice that not only had the last design
reloaded, it
started where I left off (right before the 3rd I trim). At least it didn't
shut down before completing the other 13 Is. I did restart the design at
850spm
and before the 1st I trimmed the Amaya shut down. So back to calling Melco
(hope I can talk to Chris).

Dorothy
