General Mach Discussion / Crazy problem with getting started
« on: June 03, 2011, 06:44:15 PM »
I have recently purchased a cnc machine that will run mach3 and I am having a crazy time with it. I have loaded all the programs correctly and can't seem to get past the motor tuning (which does absolutely nothing). I have been having problems with the 25 pin connector, it seems to have a mind of it's own. When I plug the connector in, the cnc machine runs on its own at random, one time x axis, the next y and so on. And what really baffles me is that the cord can not be plugged in all the way, I have to wiggle the cord to get the machine running and the connector seems to barely be hanging on. I am wondering if it's the cord itself or do I have something programmed wrong, but as i mentioned the machine seems to be doing its own thing. I can't even get it to stop with the mach program. i have to literally unplug it or take away power. has anyone run into this problem? if so, please advise. I believe the machine is only getting power and not communicating with mach!!! hmmmmm
