Mach3 does not respond to jogging or running G-code
« on: August 26, 2011, 04:19:50 AM »
Hi all,

I am very new at this and hope that someone out there can help me with this little problem.

I have just installed mach3 on my computer running Windows XP. I have meticulously followed the instructions in the manual. I successfully ran the "drivertest" program. nevertheless, when I run the program and try to jog it or manually put in some G-code, the positions of the axis always remain at 0. Has anyone else come across this problem and found a solution? I would be glad to hear from you.

Sounds like you have not got the axis enabled in Ports and Pins, Motor Outpputs, that is the only reason I can think of that the Readouts in Mach would not show movement.

Thanks Hood. Where do I find "Ports and Pins, Motor Outputs"?

Most likely is the wrong port address, or wrong port # assigned to pins.

I do appreciate everyone's support with my previous problem. I am a bit further down the road to completion. However, I have struck another snag that is giving me headaches. When I send some G code to the controller, there is a high pitch sound from the stepper motors as though they are receiving pulses. However, there is no movement. I can control the stepper motors with a handheld controller and they move as they are supposed to. However, under computer control all I get is this high pitch noise from whatever stepper motor is supposed to be turning. Any ideas would be much appreciate.

You would seem to have the Velocity and/or acceleration set to high for your particular setup and this is causing the motors to stall (high pitch sound)
