Hope someone can help me. I'm new to this... I just got AR4pro running and had homed the machine without any problem. After setting a work piece, moved the machine manually on controller to set origin. Problem occurred while moving the machine to the work origin. After pressing the controller's X+ button several times towards the origin it suddenly started to move towards the opposite X- way. I have tried restarting the machine and home it but does not home. The machine tries to go to home position but it keeps on moving X- direction. The machine tries to advance towards X+ but it moves toward X- direction. Is their anyway to fix this or reset this X+ button to move to the correct direction? Please...someone give me an advice...
Trouble shooting ideas that were suggested to me: *Locate the cable that connects the hand-held controller (HHC) to the box. Turn it around (end-for-end) and plug it back in to your HHC and the box. Is your x-axis still behaving incorrectly?
*Open your machine to find the stepper boards. Are any of the cables loose that connect to the X and Y stepper boards?
*Find the X-axis and Y-axis cables that plug into the X and Y stepper boards. Switch those around.... Plug the X-axis into the Y stepper board and vice versa. Is the x-axis still behaving incorrectly?
On my machine, I found a loose wire. Since the wire was not crimped into the plug correctly, it was loose and caused my Y-axis to move in the same direction regardless if I pushed Y- OR Y+. If these troubleshooting ideas don't help, let the group know. Also, you can call Tech Support. They are very helpful in stepping thru the problem with you.
