Pronterface will not let me change the extrusion amount

Hi,

I'm trying to calibrate my E-Steps and for some reason pronterface won't let me change the extrusion amount. I was manually extruding the preset 5mm in some calibration runs, then left for half an hour, and when I came back it wanted to extrude 1000mm instead of 5mm. This gives an override error saying that 1000mm is too much to extrude. The problem is that pronterface won't let me change this to any other length. When I go to enter in the filament length it won't let me type anything and commands like G1 E5 or M101 E5 don't yield a response.

Does anyone know how to fix this problem? Is there any other G or M code I could try entering to manually control the amount extruded? Any and all tips/suggestions would be much appreciated.

Thanks,
Bryan
