Hi,

CNC Mach3 motion control card model MKSX-V (MKS4-V?).

I'm pretty new to all this so pardon my ignorance.  In his post joeaverage mantioned BoB - what is BoB?

Does someone have a link to where I can download the plug-ins?

Thank you for the two replies - I'll look into both.
Strange thing is that all has been working OK for many months then all of a sudden this problem.
Forgot to mention in initial post was that we had a power drop out while the controller was powered on but without Mach3/router running.

Hi,
CNC is China Zone CNC 6040 connected by USB to laptop running Windows 7 SP1.
Starting Mach3 shows Status: Device Error Triggered; selecting Reset changes the status to HomeSwitch Triggered.  At no stage did the 6040 trigger any limit switch.
I have reinstalled Mach3 but the problems remain.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for your reply.
Using the version (3.043.066) which came with the machine.
Downloaded and installed the latest version from the Machsupport website. It's an older version (3.043.062) and didn't appear to install correctly.
Last resort was to copy the Mach3 folder from a "working" PC and simply run the Mach3.exe file. So far, so good as it is now working OK (version 3.043.066 by the way).

Not very encouraging (not your fault)

Hi,
Running Mach3 on an old Windows 7 32bit PC which produces intermittent stoppages of the router; also Mach3 often crashing with no error being displayed.  We are using a CNC 6040Z and a CNC 6040Z controller, USB connected.
Attempted running on a Windows 7 64bit Acer laptop with exactly the same software. Now we get Art code 3336 and 8877 errors before being able to load the C-code.  Windows is absolutely up-to-date as are all drivers.
Any ideas out there?
Thanks in advance.
PS.  Tried the forum's search but to no avail.  >:(
