What does error code, "machine limit reached" mean?

Hello folks, this evening I set my x/y to 0,0 for both motor and motion limits and the max settings for x at 1000mm and y at 1000mm however when I ran the following instruction

"G1 x750 y1000 f2000" I received the following error, "machine limit reached"?

Why am I getting that error when I am no where near my x/y limits?

A simple g00 y1000 moves the proper y length direction. Likewise g00 x1000 moves the proper x length dirction

License has been loaded in to the software...

How do the "machine limits" work?

Thanks in advance

Hi folks I solved this... rookie mistake my motor x,y coordinates were not at zero when the machine coordinates were so it was hitting limits prematurely.

Resetting motor and machine to zero then running my "limit" test worked.

Sorry for the confusion.
