Machine configs done...all axis home perfectly.Machine jogs, Z moves up and down within limits.

Load gcode cut file to do a dry-run on (plasma off). Press play and then two of the tabs are missing (stats/config), and all of the tool files read wrong....worse thing is the Z axis will not move from gcode.

Uploading the ini, hal, and connections.hal. This is an older gcode file I've cut before on v1 of my machine.

Edit: Added pic of the screen showing the missing tabs next to the captured mouse pointer.

The missing tabs usually mean an error when loading LinuxCNC.

Could you run it from a terminal and check for any error messages.

Ok. They were there earlier, and I didn't notice them missing until the Z was supposed to come in and it didn't.

Ran it from a terminal and here is the ss. Notice the invalid tab thing at the bottom of ss 2.

That did it. And Z moves on dry run.

Now the voltage display is way too high....that is probably a connection somewhere YAY...

Check that the voltage offset and voltage scale in the config panel match with your calculations.
