Hello,
had the same thing with this ePid fault.

i can see you are using CSLAB as well.

here the original answer from CSLAB as i went into this ePid Thing:

--- This fault can be activated by:
---  Bad Mach3 version. Bersions newer that 03.043.045 of Mach3 can cause ePID fault.
--- We recommend to use versions of Mach3 03.043.022 to 03.043.044. We always use 03.043.022 version as it's the most reliable in our opinion.


regards Tom

PS i "downgraded" to 03.043.022 and the ePid Thing is gone

i have written this a couple of sides earlier, i am running now without this epid Errors.

Position your machine at X0
Then MDI G50 G1 X6 F30
Measure how far the axis moved.
The G50 will cancel any scaling that may be in effect.

done ?
result ?

After I pushed. My cnc out of form I disconnected the motors and put Some tape on the shafts. I wish I did that earlyer.:(
3.6 volts. You where both right!
The port I bought has A universal slot, for 3.3 and 5 volts. The slot in the computer is A long one so I expected it to be 5 volts. Nope!
By running A G-code  the voltage was 4.6 volts so when I jog the motors get powered bij the parallelport and running A G-code by the USB 5 volt connection.

Do I need A other motherboard? Or is there A way to fix this and get 5 volt on the port. The powersupply of the computer is 12 and 5 volts so somewere on the motherboard iTS being redused to 3.5.

Sorry i am Overwhelmed with my bad Bavarian English.

@Tweakie, i hope You can "jumpt in"

Thank You

have you tryed to run this code (sent this on page 4 of this thread):

Code: [Select]
'Make the MSComDlg.CommonDialog class available for use. Required for filedialog function.
function registerComDlg
    Set objRegistry = GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\default:StdRegProv")
    objRegistry.CreateKey &H80000001, "Software\CLASSES\Licenses\4D553650-6ABE-11cf-8ADB-00AA00C00905"
    objRegistry.SetStringValue &H80000001, "Software\CLASSES\Licenses\4D553650-6ABE-11cf-8ADB-00AA00C00905", "", "gfjmrfkfifkmkfffrlmmgmhmnlulkmfmqkqj"
end function

just have a look into your GCode file, for example the big circle:

N239230G2X6.0634Y0.4594I-0.2950J-6.0736F100.0

the ist nothing bigger than 6.something Inch

also if you have a look in Standard Screen set (1024 -> tool path)  for the
Programm Limits, they are +/- 6.08",

so why should  the result be bigger than this ?

a first easy step would be,
to check the voltage with a Voltmeter
at the dir pin.
