Hello

I am French, excuse me for my language.

I buy this kit: http://www.probotix.com/index.php?view=product&product_id=45]http://www.probotix.com/index.php?view=product&product_id=45

(4 kit stepper motor 400 oz / inch)

I'm plugged the card on the parallel port.

I have Mach3.

I configured mach3: http://www.probotix.com/cnc_downloads/

And when I press the keys, stepper not running!!!
The stepper motor work because when I plug in food, motor are: Bzzzzzz .... And when I want to turn the axis in hand, it stops.
with USB, but it does not work.

Please help me
thank you

Hi, Jayls

Tell us about your computer, Have you checked Port address and made sure it set to the proper address, 0378 is standard, But your's may be different.

See pic. below.

Hope this Helps, Chip

Hi Jayls

Hi Chip - I think the USB is only being used on this system for +5V logic supply. According to the piccies Jayls hasn't connected the parallel port.

Hi Jayls

employez tous les deux, LPT1 et USB

USB c'est pour +5V

LPT1 c'est pour commande les moteurs

Hi, Ian

His comment "I'm plugged the card on the parallel port", True the Pic doesn't show it.

Gotta-Start-Somewhere, Could be it.

Thanks, Chip

Ooop's, Left out the Welcome-Aboard "Stirling" !!

Stirling - You're not French are you - excellent reply
Not me driving the engine - I'm better looking.

I have the same problem with a new control box with Gecko drives and IBM computer.

All the control box components work properly with a computer from another machine that is known to work with Mach. I have tried two different IBM computers and only get a high pitched whine from the steppers. I have seen this problem posted here and on the Geckodrive Yahoo group, but with no solution.

Have you run the drive test to see what it looks like?

Yes, I have run the driver test. There is nothing that looks unusual. The signals do get to the motors, but the motors do not respond with movement.
