Incomplete homing
« on: December 19, 2012, 04:59:13 PM »
Hi All,
Something went wrong after I upgraded to the latest version of Mach3 as suggested by the ESS (ethernet smoothstepper)people. The homing function never completes now, when clicking on the Reference all button only the Z axis does it properly and then the process stops. Before this the Z, Y and X in this order home with out any problems. I can home each axis individually, move with the keyboard but the ref all home option is not working. In the Diagnostics window there are no apparent issues, when pressed the switches light up the led's so I'm at loss. One thing to point out, after the update all of my settings were gone and I had to copy the macros from my backup to get it working again. Is that is the problem What my next step should be? Any suggestions are appreciated.

Best..
BR

When you press RefAll do any of the LEDs at the side of the Axes DROs turn green?

Only Z axis turn creen.

 Just check the RefAll button script and it read
DoButton( 24 )
DoButton( 23 )
DoButton( 22 )
DoButton( 25 )

DoOEMButton(133)
DoOEMButton(134)
DoOEMButton(135)

So it appears normal as far as I can tell..

"An Error Has Occurred!
Sorry! There is already an attachment with the same filename as the one you tried to upload. Please rename the file and try again."

This is the message I'm getting.

Hmm, I don't understand this message at all. I haven't posted or see any xml files here.. ??? :(
