Use the manual override to bring the boom in and see it that will free up the outriggers. Here is page from manual.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I have the manual. I tried to return the boom manually according to the manual and nothing worked
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Boom would not retract when hand pump was used?

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Is boom in the saddle?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
No I wasn't able to get the hand pump to do anything
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It is
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
i might be missing something on the way to use or open valves for the hand pump
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Valve button has to be held down, while pump is used.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Sorry the boom isn't sitting all the way down in the craddle
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Get the boom lowered into cradle, and try it.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The manual pump doesn't seem to do anything no matter which way I turn the valves
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Valves only turn or push/pull. which valve do you mean hold down
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I've tried holding the valve in while pumping it didn't work
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Hand pump does not pump? DOes it have valve that needs to be turned in before it will pressure up? Like typical hydraulic jack?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Who's asking the questions here? Lol
I'm not sure I haven't seen anything similar to that
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
The manual doesn't show or provide any details about that
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Is there a blue enable button , it has to be pushed, then the function button.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
None of the function controls will work because as soon as I turn the key on and pulled the emergency stop button to operate anything the alarm overrides all functions
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Do not turn the key on, to operate the hand pump and valves. This is a manual function.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Yeah I know.
Customer: replied 9 months ago.
Are you just reading the manual because I have already gone through all of the options in it. I need to bypass or override something would think
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

I haven't seen one of these in 10 years. Is there a switch that the boom comes down on in the saddle? If there is , hold switch down to override.

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Did you get it going?

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
I haven't. I had to go to work.
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

OK>

Expert:  Curtis B. replied 9 months ago.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
No
