    I have a Genie Z45/22 that is experiencing an intermittent problem with the Joystick Controller - Boom Functions, Dual Axis. The intermittent problem is only with the Primary Boom Up or Down. It does not affect the Turntable Rotate functions. How do I troubleshoot this?

    Recalibrate joystick...and see if problem goes away...

    GCON key switch to platform
    In platform pull e-stop out
    DO NOT PUT FOOT ON FOOTSWITCH
    *To joystick being calibrated**
    Joystick forward 6-7 seconds
    Back to center for 2 seconds
    Joystick backwards for 6-7 seconds
    Back to center for 2 seconds
    Joystick to the left for 6-7 sec
    Back to center for 2 sec
    Joystick to the right for 6-7 sec
    Back to center for 2 seconds
    Cycle e-stop

    * not needing to do exact combo just every function of joystick needs that 6-7 sec...add the same toggle sequence for a rocker*

    If they come back...check condition of battery as a bad battery with low cranking voltage will throw calibrations...if they don’t come back and you have inspected correlating wiring to them as good...more than likely moisture is in them...
