No Motor turn
« on: October 25, 2013, 02:35:25 PM »
I am Very New to CNC - I have Mach 3 (R03.043.066) running on a off lease computer with windows 7 (32 bit) home premium - I have the LPT 1 port connected to a C10 card - and drivers and stepper motors - when I toggle the DRO with the direction buttons I get DRO changes but No motor movement - on the diagnostics page - I noticed with the cable unplugged from the C10 card pin buttons 4-8 turned green - but when I plug it in they are all off (pin 4,5  Z axis  pin 6,7 Y axis  pin 8,9 X axis) - I belive I need to get these green
in order to have output to get the motors to turn

Have you got your problem fixed yet? I'm having the same problem with the same board but I have no green lights pluged or unplugged

Yes I have fixed the problem - when I was told that the 0/5V pin to the controllers from the C 10 board is 5V - then I figured out the Jumper on the C 10 board was in the wrong position (0V) by measuring with a voltmeter - once I change the jumper all was well
