Many thanks.
I was sure I had tried that, but it has fixed it !!
I can now progress to checking the pins.

I have now checked the dir pins for X,Y & Z axes which are pins 3,5 & 7
I measure 4.32 V and 0.8V pin to ground which I guess is OK.

I still get no movement on any axis.

Although the e stop is designated to pin 10 when I look at the diagnostics screen, operating the e stop lights pin 7 green.
Pin 7 is designated as the Z dir pin !

As always - comments appreciated

Dont look at the port state in Diagnostics, only Art I think knows what they mean :D

Check if its working by operating your E-Stop, Mach will go into Reset if it is.

Sounds like external issues, probably your breakout or wiring.

Any input pin can be assigned to the EStop. In your case if pin 7 is being triggered on the diagnostics page. Reassign it in settings.

Fastest, I may be mistaken but I am thinking it is the current state LEDs that he is meaning, ie these ones, see pic. If you can work out what they show you are way ahead of me ;)

Thanks for all the comments.
I have had a discussion with the driver box supplier and we have agreed that he will check it out. I posted it to him yesterday.
I will update you on it's return.
