The robot is in an unknown location and for some reason cannot move automatically to the home position.Follow this procedure to move the robot to the home position.

On the IPC, open the software and go to the settings.
Open the robot settings tab.
Click on the button to move the robot manually.
The robot can be moved manually while this popup is open.
To move the robot in a safe way, one deadman switch on the back of the Teach Pendant must be in the safe middle position.
Both deadman switches have 3 positions:
Safe middle position
Try if you can feel the three positions.To be able to reset the error and move the robot, only one of the two deadman switches has to be in the safe middle position.So don’t push too hard or too soft!
Press the SHIFT button together with the RESET button to clear all faults.
The fault indicator on the top of the teach pendant should become inactive.
Depending on the version of the robot, the 'Group' needs to be set to 1.Group 1 will move the robot, group 2 and 3 will move the tables.
