So, the greasy pack rat expert 30 miles from my house told me "oh yeah, I have it right here" I drove down there picked up the parallel pci card I needed, came home got her plugged in and talking and I've got the same problem!
Only now I'm getting 2.6v instead of 3.3?
I've read people found the right pci card by trial and error necause none of these chinese manufacturers post the voltage specs.
If anyone can tell me what they found and from who it would be greatly appreciated.
Side Note: Why does the assigned dir pin in Mach say 2 when I am actually getting the dir signal from pin 3?

I'm still trying to understand these outputs and I just checked the Z axis dir voltage because it is the only axis that will move and the voltage read 1.4!?
Why does this axis work at a lower voltage than the others that do not work?
I have a xylotex controller btw.  Can I adjust the input level on the breakout board somehow?
I may be way out in left field thinking the controller has anything to do with it at all.

cvk31,

Check with them first but I think that the A25 PCI parallel port card sold by CNC4PC is OK for 5Volts output.

I picked up a card this afternoon which was verified by the guy at the shop to run 5v brought it home tested it, 5v!... Still having the same problem.
I am running licensed version of R3.043. Anyone? What am I missing? Anyone?
The Z stepper runs normally, the Y stepper wines but does not move and X makes no sounds no movement.

Keling 23h276 steppers,  What's driving me nuts is everything worked before the PC rebuild.

xml looks ok.
I was meaning the drives that the motor connects to, also do you have a breakout board?

Ok, How do I test each axis on the controller? X and Z work great. Y just makes noise and wont move?
I need a literal how to as I'm not to sharp when it comes to the multi tester.

It's the controller.
Reassigned pins to A axis and my x works.  Will be sending this board out for repair.

Thanks for the help guys.
