First circuit no Power

I just made my first circuit but, there's no V (goes down). And amps graph disappeared. AC Voltage Function Generator used. How to Reset?

Your simulation timestep (currently 0.05 seconds) is much too large for the 60 Hz signal.

I opened your circuit and changed "Time Step" to "100u" and it works fine!

It's a bit more informative if you also change the run time to, say, 0.1 sec. You get a better look at the waveform.
