Problem

When the controller powers up the 2AF1 error shows on the pendant.

Solution

Operate the pendant as follows.

1. Press [ F2: Arm ]
2. Press the [ SHIFT ] key
3. HOLD (Right and Left keys) + [ F6: Maint ]
4. Press [ F8: ENC Ref ]
5. Press [ F5: Chg Ref ]
6. Press [ OK ] (twice)
7. Press [ F1: Pos Conf ]
8. Press [ OK ] (twice)

The error indication is cancelled by the above operation.
