Probe not responding
« on: April 27, 2012, 05:51:38 PM »
I'm trying to get my probe to work again. In port and pins I have Index disabled and Probe enabled, assigned to port 1 pin 15 and active low. 
When I touch it to the touch plate the led on the BOB flashes each time and on the settings page the "Port 1 Pins current
State" changes also, but the program won't respond.  At one time this all worked (last year) so I'm checking the Gcode last.
Have I missed a setting somewhere?  Should the Index or Digitize LED on the settings page light up? What's your thoughts?
Thanks, Ben

The pin LED says that Mach knows that pin 15 has a signal but doesn't realize that it's a probe, so it's not lighting the digitizing LED.  So I think there is something
I've missed in the setup.
