Hey, guys. I just assembled my new X-Carve, however I seem to have hit a problem. I can’t get the stepper motors to respond. When I turn on the power, the fan whirls to life, the gShield and Arduino light up, and Easel on my Mac automatically recognizes that an X-Carve is attached. But when I test the motors through the Easel software, nothing happens. There’s no sound or motion indicating that they even received a signal from the motion controller. I checked all the wiring to make sure that no wires were crossed or touching. The gShield seems firmly attached to the Arduino.
Any suggestions? I’m not sure exactly how to isolate and test each component, such as checking if the motors work individually or if the gShield burned out somehow. I’d appreciate any ideas of how to trouble shoot. Thanks!
