What to do if the P7000 drive locks up and won't communicate.

If the P7000 stepper drive "locks up" or will not communicate with the P7000Tools software, it is possible that the firmware has been lost or corrupted.  If this is the case, reloading the firmware will fix it.  To re-load the firmware when the drive will not communicate, open p7000 tools and click "Project" and "Add Drive". this will expose "Update Operating System" in the drive menu. Press F2 and check the "download boot sector" checkbox.
