Help major XYZ axis problems after a 2 month break...
« on: June 30, 2014, 12:12:27 PM »
I have been using Mach 3 for a couple of years without any major problems.

After a break for a couple of months, I turned my machine on and did the usual startup.

but….even though cables haven't been swapped the following crazy behaviour was noted:

If I use the keyboard or toggle for the Y axis, the direction of the motors is reversed.

The Y axis buttons on keyboard or toggle control the spindle!

and the up and down buttons or Z axis toggle, does nothing.

How can this happen?

Pins and ports look good.

Can anyone help on this?

Thanks

Simon

Attach your xml and I will see if there is anything obvious there.
