I apologise.

I had thought that as my previous thread was posted yesterday, that it would soon not be visible to most users whom may of had this issue before so posted it again.
I am sorry. I am very grateful for all the advise and support this community has offered me.

The red light is not lit and the motors do not lock , though it does light briefly when the i switch on the system, and the motors are active for like a second.

They are not locked. Sometimes if i turn the system 4c off  the LED's light up and and there is some brief sounds of power. This also happens when I turn the system on but it is very brief and then they are still and silent but not locked

General Mach Discussion / HELP NEEDED URGENT

I have bought and assembled a driver unit with onboard regulated power supply for Nema 24 motors.

System4c unit info :

http://www.diycnc.co.uk/SYS4C.pdf
http://diycnc.co.uk/html/wiring.html

I have it all wired up and assembled, it should be plug in and play.
My mach3 is working fine and I am able to jog.

My issue is that when I want to test the jog on my motors, i plug my system into the PC using the PC port.
Change my motor output pins as suggested in the unit manual but NOTHING is happening. The DRO's still change but my motors are silent and still.

I'm really at a loss as to what the problem is. PLEASE HELP.

See my mach3 settings here









What am I doing wrong?

Where am I going wrong? I plug in the system4 driver unit with the parallel port but nothing is happening. motors arent making a sound or moving when I jog the keys on Mach3 even though the DRO's changes

Yes I am in the UK.
I just read the Charge Pump Circuit paragraph in the manual
Perhaps I haven't set the charge pump correctly, would you be able to tell me how in the MACH3 settings?
Is the EPP something that needs to be done to make it work? How do I set this.

I am a newbie to all of this and I thank you for your help.
