Here is a question. If I jog x axis both ways, I also get 5v on the BOB corresponding pin screw. So the motor drivers are seeing the correct voltage. This is working for all three axis' including the slave which reads the same as its host which is X. Now what?

At the end of the cable there is 4.45v on all Dir pins. Now what?

You are so right!! I read 4.45v on all three axis' in one direction when jogging. So now we know we are getting voltage but I want to do it with the cable plugged in to rule out the cable.

I wanted to offer a view of my setup.

I actually get the .025v all the time, it doesn't matter if the axis shows movement. I wonder if there is a way to check the parallel port if I take it to the computer shop? Although I am not convinced it is the motherboard/port.

I was very suprised to get 5v! but then get nothing after........I don't know what to do now.

When I say nothing, I mean .025v, it does go from 0 to .025v during movement.

It is very strange. I typed in g00x10 to give me plenty of time to test and I actually showed 5v at the pin but after doing it again to verify a repeat, now nothing. All three are nothing now. This is so frustrating.

Okay, I am testing the port itself now for voltage as I move the axis'. I will do all three.
