GSM1 error loading machine model | 22 March, 2016

A friend of mine has a used gsm1 but when loading up UPS it gives an error indicating it did not receive a request to load the machine model in the allotted time. Photo is attached of the message. Any suggestions what to look at? The machine is running ups version 3.2.0.

Apparently the machine is now completing initialization but when attempting to zero axis' it has a time-out waiting to change modes. Machine status page shows an error reading "initialization failure for motion control board."

UPDATE: For anyone experiencing similar issues it looks like it is bad axis control card(s.) It would make sense since that is what the message said... A red "fail" led was overlooked on one of the cards apparently.

I had this same issue with another machine - no request to load machine model / may be an error with the machine - and a FAIL led lit on an axis card. Swapped the card, no fail led, machine initialized and zeroed.
