    Rebel 215ic EMP Problem

    Hi Everyone! I have a Rebel 215ic EMP. The machine powers up, and on the user interface I can scroll through all the options. However, when I select any weld process, the unit just freeze up and I have to turn the machine off then on again. I tried to do a factory reset from the user interface options, but the unit still freezes and I get “Err 000.” I suspect it may be a bad control board because I am not getting a version number under “Firmware Information” as the picture below shows. Also, when ordering and replacing the user interface or control board, do they come with the correct firmware already loaded or are they just blank boards that require the firmware to be loaded by a technician. Thanks for any help!

    This is the problem I had with mine. After getting the 2nd replacement machine I dumped it on E-bay. ( both came with firmware installed but were complete units ) Good Luck !

    New control pcb will come programed but it may not operate well.
    it will depend on the software on the other pcbs if they will respond well or even talk to each other. Do call EASB tech support and tell them what you see in the firmware window and ask what is the best way to get the welder repaired. Ask if there is a service shop near that can load and update the software. It might just need a software update. If you are in northern California you could come see me.
