virtual touch plate connection trouble

Post by lockeb »

When I activate the virtual zero, I get a message that says " cannot detect touch plate. I have un plugged and re plugged several times with no success. Any suggestions? Controller 5697 M.

Hi lockeb,
I had the same problem a while back. I tried a new cable and that fixed the problem. NWA sells them for about $30.

It's cheaper than buying a new touch plate, although it might not fix it for you.

I had to do my registration again to fix mine- screen was gray and could not use.

Problem resolved. Electrical surge. Learned an expensive lesson. New motherboard on the cp unit.
