The other day after 4-5 carves, everything stopped working. Homing fails. Directional controls in Easel do not do anything. Normally when I turn the power on I can no longer move the spindle manually (the x,y, and z axis motors lock it in place). Now after turning in x-controller I can still freely move spindle.
In the machine inspector, the x,y, and z homing switch indicators are green. When I press on them, they turn white (exact opposite as expected. Someone suggested switching one of the wires to the 3rd pin, which made the indicators work as expected. Not sure why all of a sudden I would need to switch those. Seems like there is something else wrong that caused that to happen.
Homing – Spindle does not move at all. There is no noise like it is trying to move. Just nothing at all. After about 15 seconds, a message pops up that homing failed.
Spindle controls in Easel – no motion, no noise (like it is trying to move). Again, nothing at all.
Need help!!! PLEASE.
I have tried:
Taking cover off x-controller and cleaning all dust out (nothing looks burned out on the board).
Removing all connections (one at a time) blowing any dust out, and reconnecting.
Deleting and reinstalling the machine setup in Easel.
