Need some help…
Moved my machine this past weekend about 8 feet and now it wont work. Y axis works well, Z axis only moves 1 way, x axis won’t move at all.
What have I done to trouble shoot?
Reinstalled Mach 4 - no luck.
Wiggled and jiggled the electrical connections hoping to find some loose connections - no luck.
Swapped ethernet cables - no luck.
Tried changing the step / direction to active low (high?) on the z axis as it will move up when jogging up or down - It move up no matter if I press the up or down button - no luck. DRO on the screen does move in the correct direction.
I swapped motor cables between X and Z axis - X axis now moves but only one way as I anticipated based on the actions of the Z. Rules out a bad motor I believe. It does lock up when powered up.
Still leaning towards a connection - possibly a bad board. I will get the multimeter out next time I am in the shop, but I thought I would inquire here in the meantime.
