Problems please help

Postby ironhorse » Wed Aug 09, 2017 10:25 pm

Hi all, I went out to do some cutting today but my Plasmacam table wouldn't Initialize. The error code is a Machine Control Error : Short circuit to one or more of these motors: Gantry

I moved the both axis's by hand and back to home position but still refuses to initialize with same error. Has anyone had this issue before or have any ideas please?

Have you fixed this? I've had this issue before and can give you things to try.

I queried this issue, here's what mines saying!!
Couldn't control gantry position. Check for jamming or disconnected cable.
I can't find anything wrong. I just bought this table about a week ago, and very naive to functions, please help.

sounds like your table might be out of alignment. it may not be hitting one of the microswitches when you initialize.

Ity is VERY important to remember to NOT manually push the gantry or carriage too quickly on the PlasmaCam, Samson 510 and GoTorch machines. If you need to move anything, be p-a-t-i-e-n-t and do it slowly. These problems often crop up after quickly shoving the gantry or carriage out of your way.
