Hi, Dikkieduk

It's set up for key #'s, Shift  P = 1104, Ctrl Shift P = 33872 (Keyboard Scan codes), to re-zero click on the Hotkey and click on the close window X.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Al

There is an alternate driver in C:\Mach3, called SpecialDriver run it, If it doesn't help run OriginalDriver again.

Check for printer port, Dir pin for one axis , Stepping one dir 0 volts the other dir 5 volts, 3.5 is usually to lo.

Thanks, Chip

That could be it also Brett this is true

Hi, Al

In C:\Mach3 folder try the driver test, Let it run it will close out by it's self, Then reboot.

Try a complete Mach3 Install from download.

Some laptop's printer ports only put out 3.5 volt's, May need a PCMCI  printer port card, This one may do it.


Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Pete

Mach3 has a Sherline Mode, Win 2000 or XP,  CPU 1000 or more for best results.

Above, Under Tutorials, View some of the Videos & Dock's, Under Downloads you'll find Mach3R2.60 Free trial ver's, 500 line limit in G-code.

Have Fun, Welcome, Chip

Hi, Overloaded

Did a search for PCMCI and came up with info, some good some bad.

Check this site, http://www.transdigital.net/info.htm  The post says it works.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Mike

Set your Debounce Interval to 2000. In Config, General Configuration page.

If that doesn't help, Some have put a Capacitor across there limit switch's, I think .01 cap's.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi, Luther

Only if you have the servo error/trip fed back to Mach, Config, Ports&Pins, Inputs, "E-stop", 5 volts Max or gnd., Tied into your E-stop in some way.

Probably other way's also.

Hope this Helps, Chip
