Man Hood,
   guys like you make me feel like such a idiot. Thanks for getting the pic on here.I stated up front in my opening post I'm NOT a computer,electronics or internet communication wiz & I guess the fact I can't even get a pic in a post proves it.I tried a right click on the pic,(seems like I remember an option like "resize"in win XP ?). But I didn't see any option to resize, Hell i don't even know why they are BIG in the first place!When you say you have taken a screenshot of it,got it to show in post as a thumbnail at a reasonable resolution,phew! sailed right over my head?I can't keep asking for help,pretty soon you'll be expecting me to ask how to tie my shoes!!
    In the pic you'll notice I only have 1 encoder cable made at this point(Z axis on far right)The r  0  on the display indicates the drive is ready to display rpm's.I can turn the servo motor shaft between my fingers and get a reading so I'm pretty confident the cable is made correctly.The X & Y are flashing Err  22 indicating an encoder or cable problem cause I don't have the cables made yet.
    After our correspondence yesterday I believe we think I don't have a power supply connected for signal control. I kinda thought that myself when I read the manual but I also thought to myself "how can I have a readout on the drive and an encoder that seems to be working if the control has no power?" But you have me confident & convinced of what I need to redo as soon as I can get hold of some shielded cable with enough conductors.I need to backtrack this thread and get a list of exactly what I need where & where(those cw &ccw inhibs,etc).
    Thanks for getting a pic up for me,(proving it's easy IF ya know how).Now I need to search "screenshot & thumbnail" & see iffin' I can get me some learn'!!
    THANKS HOOD, Rick

Rick, this will help on the screen shots.   http://www.wisdom-soft.com/products/screenhunter_free.htm

And you can get good cable by the foot here.  http://www.igus.com/default.asp?PAGE=CHAINFLEX

Are you kidding me!!
    That's crazy,I never seen that trick before,thanks for the good sense of humor Hood.Brett, I haven't checked the links yet but I will. I need the photo education and buying shielded twisted pair cabling by the foot is tough to find,I bought the cable for the encoder used off e-bay cause everybody selling new wanted to sell me a 500' roll, I didn't need quite that much!

I should've known. I read if I did that it should put a thumbnail in a post,obviously didn't work for me.
                 Good Nite. Rick
