    Default maxstar 150 will not tig

    150 STH will spark on tig impuse. It will stick weld. It will not turn on output on any setting. I reset factory settings. Has little use over four years.

    Are you using the Remote and is it plugged ALL the way in? Darn things are too small to see and then that locking ring...
    Do you have the leads switched around so the torch is Negative and ground Positive?
    Can you hear the gas solenoid kick in when you switch the remote on or use the local control and touch the tungsten to the work?

    The fact that the unit still Stick welds is a good sign since that means the power components are still good. Have you tried the lift TIG setting? Have you checked your work clamp and cable to make sure it is making good contact?
    Are you using the remote control? If so, could it be bad i.e. could the remote be set at zero current.
