Just bought a used machine - Bridgeport R2E4 w/ BOSS 9 control

Looks good - ran B4 transport

Hooked up and powers up - Goes through "self check" but won't "home" ie: axis enable red light on, press enable button and BOTH red and green are lit(?) Press "execute" - nothing happens.

Tried w/ and w/o tool in QC, w & w/o air applied - Screen states "axis limits" and "not homed" for all axis, but no movement or spindle start. Can't get to manual jog and table seems centered X&Y not on "limit switches" - Haven't checked "Z"??

Check power and fuses in panels that seemed obvious... Does anyone have any hints?? I'm new to this and dove in ankle deep, but head first! and must be making a simple mistake (I hope!)

Thanks in advance - Dean
