I started up my 1000mm machine, and entered the setup on easel. I can get all the directional arrows to work, but when I got to do the homing, the Z starts, goes to the limit switch, then slowly seems to try to move Z again, and then goes to Y. X doesn’t seem to do anything. I have triple checked my wiring and can’t figure it out. Any ideas?
I found in machine inspector that my X homing switch is showing its being pressed. Any ideas?
I unplugged and redid all the wiring to all of the homing switch. Still showing it’s being pressed.
When you actually press the X homing switch, does the state change?
Sounds like a faulty X-switch / wiring issue. Could also be electrical noise.
The Homing procedure btw is:
Z first, douple tap. First tap, pull off 1mm then move more slowly towards switch for second tap.
Then it will move towards X/Y simoustainly (or only X or Y if one of the switches is seen as pressed. (ON)) for the same double tap switch engagement.
Nothing changes when I press the switch. I’ll change it out with the Z to see if it works then.
Well that didn’t work. I unhooked the z switch and plugged it into the x limit switch wires and it’s still showing it is being pressed. I once again lossend and pulled out the black and red x limit switch wires and checked, and everything seems fine and secure. Not sure what else to check. I’ll call inventables in a bit unless someone responds before I do.
Do the switch show as pressed even when it is completely disconnected, no wires nor switch?
Ok I’ll talk to them when they open. I also just noticed that when I press pause or soft reset it doesn’t show in machine inspector that they are being pressed either, but the run button does work.
Make sure that the internal cables are pressed fully into their sockets. The retaining clips will close prior to the cables being fully seated.
I did check that too. Pulled out the ribbon cables and reseated them. Inventables is sending out replacement electronics.
