what plasma cutter is it? hypertherm?  make sure that the air pressure is set to the recommendations of the plasma cutter manual.and dry air.  higher pressure does not make it cut better or cut thicker material. i run at 70 psi with a powermax 1100, 80 amp nozzles.

 change the thc rate dro to 6 from the 15 and see if that works. adjust that number up or down.  i use at 6-7 with a z jog speed of 90.
i set it at 15-20 when moving the z manually with a joystick when flame cutting.

do you have a thc speed dro on your plasma screen?

cripes BR. is anything you cant do? :D

it just may be that simple. corrosion of a terminal or connector. before i converted a bridgeport r2e4, i had tried a few things to get it to work. been a while  but the manual had directions for removing boards and washing . let dry and reconnect. also about corrosion at any ic chip sockets. push on the chips carefully.

i have never needed anything but lazycam for plasma.i find that arcs can be a pain so after drawing shape , i explode all and then join polylines. i use turbocad vers 10.  i then offset to the inside or outside the width of the plasma kerf and delete the original lines. save as r14 or earlier dxf.  open in lazycam , relayer opimize, reset origin, cset the leadins
and direction form the popup dialog box. set the speeds and feeds  in the dialog box , post and save.i know that everyone says that sheetcam is better and i have played around with it but, i can go from importing a dxf into lazycam and be cutting in less than 1 minute. i also have customized the plasma post processor so that it auto inserts the safe z, start z, and plunge speed z . been using it for 4 years now.

probably the c4 board. crappy solder or connection. i had 1 give me problems.

just reread your post. yes, the c10 must be powered from the pc. either by tapping the usb port or just connect into an unused connector off the pc power supply. red 5v+ , black-. also the enable jumper on the board. i have 3 of these boards and have not had any problems.
