« on: May 31, 2012, 01:22:36 PM »
hw;s every body doing?
I have a very unusual problem the screen resolution of my mach3 screen has become smaller. I didnot change any setting eveything is small and hard to see. It has gone from a full screen to almost half a screen resolution why is that?
I am also missing steps it seems like and y axis motor is behaving wierd. Like it just don't do nothing some time and just vibrate loudly, i have check the axis it pretty smooth and the motor speed is only 10 to 15ipm. Any soutions

have a good one

Try and maximise the screen with the button up at top right then close Mach and restart and see if that helps with the small screen.
If it doesnt then attach your xml and I will have a look.

thx a lot HOOD for taking the time to help me out, i maximized and then close that worked perfectly.
Hw abt the vibration issue. The motor vibrates with loud noise still moves a liittle but when i wait like 10 min or so then try it works fine why do u think it does that?

Can you swap out a drive to see if the problem follows the drive?
Swap the motor to see if the problem follows the motor.
