I opened the case, and the 5amp fuse is blown. I tried replacing the fuse, adn it blew again. I tried disconnecting the x-axis motor, since it was the one I was messnig with when all the trouble started, and the fuse blew again. any ideas on what can be over loading the fuse?

Here is the current XML file. I also tried using one of the backup XML files from a date which the machine was working and there was still no reaction.

It appears all the drives are enabled. I am wondering if I may have pushed a wrong ketboard buttonnear the cursor arrow keeys and the page  up/ page down keys used to jog the motors? Either way, I was jogging the motor to see if I had fixed the binding situation, the motor bound for a second, then nothing after I made adjustments to the coupling. That is why I think I might have hit a shortcut key on ht ekeyboard that has changed a setting.

We had an issue with the x-axis binding when moving towards the positive. After turning off the controler, unmounting the motor and testing the motor and the drive screw (with no iisssuuess found) we re-attached the motor and it bound when traveling in the positive direction only. We concluded that the coupling between the motor and the drive screw was the problem, and shut off the controler then adjusted the coupling. Since that time, none of the motor seem to be working. We have revisited the setup tutorials and also used parmon to see that there is a signal to the serial port...

We are running MAch3 with RockCliff Controler and Motors and an E-stop

General Mach Discussion / Lost one of my Y Motors
« on: July 27, 2010, 06:19:40 PM »
One of my couplings on one of my  Y motors came loose.  After fixing the coupling I manuallyy turned my acme shaft to align the gantry.  After I realized that I had not unplugged the wires I quickly unplugged them.   After finishing the adjustment I then plugged the motors back in.  At that time only one motor runs.  I cannot find out what is causing the other motor not to operate.  I am new at this and haven't been running my machine very long.  I am using a Rockcliff 4 motor system and prewired controls and Artsoft/Mach 3 to run.  Any ideas for me to look for?  Thank you

On an older post you gave an instruction screen to download video tutorials.  Would you please update this site address as I'm having trouble finding this ?

In  the past I was able to view the video tutorials.  Now when I try to access them I get a message to enable Java and download  Flash Player.  I all ready have Flash Player downloaded.  Any ideas about what I'm doing wrong?
