This is possibly the best way of showing so started a new set of vids just for forum answers.

Here is a very quick way of doing the X Axis (Motor 0) you will have to do same with all other motors.

DazTheGas

It works!  I turned on my PC today and tried moving the X axis and it jogged but it will only jog in one direction with X- or X+ and if I click X- even in incremental mode the axis just keep turning but with X+ it moves incrementally.

That sounds like the X Step connection is working but the X Direction connection is not.

That has happened to me before.

It was a careful checking of the output of pin 3, as well as all of the ESS and Mach4 settings relating to X Dir signal.

It was so long ago now that I can't remember whether it was a wiring problem or software settings problem, but I got it working again by checking the wiring first, then software.
