hey Ed my name is ***** ***** Ill try to help you out here. give me a couple minutes to look up some info. in the mean time can you send back your email so I can send you info as I get it
Ed normally when the twine arm fails to return home it is because there is an issue with the electrical connection to the battery. because it requires so much power to run the motor you need perfect ground and positive connections. do you have them connected direct to battery 12volt? have you checked them as well?
do you have baletrak or balewatch monitor?
ok here is what I have found
the CH-01 is the initial start up channel. so try this....
hold the "123" counter key and power up the monitor
"050" should be displayed and then release the counter key
at the same time press and hold plus and minus key until te display changes to "099"
turn off the monitor to save the setting
everything points to a bad electrical connection in the convience outlet but try this first
you have a tough one. if this was in my yard I would try to track down another monitor and see how it acted on your machine. I have had these monitors fail in the past... not often but it happens. any chance you have a neighbor or a deere dealer that would let you swap monitors for a minute?
for the monitor to go brain dead like that all of a sudden is a bit concerning. unless you physically go into the programming side of the monitor it should never loose its program for the model that is set in it
good morning sheepdog, were you able to get this figured out?
