limit switch triggered
« on: May 28, 2017, 04:30:35 PM »
Hey, I could use some wisdom!
I use a microproto taig mill,
I had alot of success with it before i unplugged it and.moved myself into this new apt...
I built an enclosure around my desk where it sits, and was ready to plug her in this moning...
Upon reconnecting my a,x,y,z connections toi the driver bix, along with my encoder paralell port and the UC100 usb connector, i was under the impression i was going to be up and running again like normal...
Not the case...
I oppen mach3, it recognizes the UC 100, but then right behind the UC100 start, i get the dreaded "limit switch triggered" error...
Neither the X, Y, or Z is sitting on a limit, and i havent used the laptop since i powered down the machine before the move...
I was very delicate while moving the machine intact, it rode seatbelted into the passenger seat...

I dont know what to do first... please shed some light on ppitential things to check...
Thanks in advance for anyone willing to walk with me!

Go to the diagnostic page, and see which limit switch is triggering the input, and go from there.
