Cannot Initialize

Post by rboonstra » Tue Aug 13, 2019 5:49 pm

Was cutting then stopped. Tried to initialize. Got error message: unable to initialize machine. could not detect limit switch closing on: carriage gantry.

When I try to initialize I hear a buzzing/clicking noise from the carriage and then the error message.

Tested x and y switches with diagnostics panel and booth are working.
Replaced all cam followers and both limit switches. Have new controller board. Now it seems it's down to motors and cables and i don't want to just start throwing money at $300 motors.

Need to get running as I have been down for 6 weeks.
