Steady state problem in Estimation

Hello to everyone,

I am trying to estimate a rather big model with close to 80 variables. When I use the stoch_stimul command and calibrated parameters, the steady state is computed through the steady_state file I provide and everything run smoothly. When I want to estimate the same model I get the following error:

Parameter error:
The model does not solve for prior_mean with error code info = 19

info==19 %! The steadystate routine thrown an exception (inconsistent deep parameters). 

Try sampling up to 50 parameter sets from the prior. 

Any idea what’s going wrong before I upload all the files?

It means your steady state file did return with an error code, i.e. check=1
