Setup and Control issue
« on: May 05, 2020, 08:41:24 AM »
Hi. Returning after many years. Setting up Mach on a new machine and I'm having trouble with the Y axis. It will jog when I press the up arrow key, but won't stop. If I reset and jog in the opposite direction, it will start/stop , but only in that direction.  X and Z function fine. Windows7, parallel port/Gecko 540/Nema 23

Bumping up. I didn't have my old config file and set this up from snapshots from my previous machine. Can't seem to figure this out. Switching ports and pins around I was able to replicate it on the x axis, so It's not the engines. Any help is appreciated.

I'm getting there. Ran a clean install and have begun config from scratch. Engines behaving as normal. Will sum up when all is done. Thanks for help thus far.
