    Cheers the reply Alex! Yeh i've swapped the jumpers from the Y over to the x driver and i get movement on the Y that way. So i've got motion on X,Y,Z motors, just the y-allocated driver is showing a fault and can't drive any of the motors with it.

    Cheers Leadhead, should i post up some pics of the drivers? Maybe you could advise on whether i need to replace them with different drivers and board in the pc to get me back to running on Mach3. NCStudio is no fun at all :)

    Hi Will,

    Ok good start, Pics of the drivers would be helpful, do you mean the driver has a flashing Red LED or something when you say it is showing fault?

    Not sure what drivers you have, but the AM882 Leadshine drivers i have flash a red LED if any of the vital connections aren't detected / wired incorrectly.

    Thanks

    Alex

    Will - If you are still in trouble. I can pop in next week with a spare driver and BoB if you think it would help.

    Think there are photos attached now. Sorry, first time uploading photos to the forum.

    Curiously, although nothing else has changed, i'm now also getting a Y Limit alarm on NC Studio. The gantry is nowhere near the limit switch, which is a proximity type.

    And thanks Lead, that would be AMAZING. Have PM'd you with my number. Anytime convenient to you, i'll be there with bells on.

    Hi Chester

    Welcome to the forum, looks like you've settled in well. I don't post here often as I don't currently spend a lot of time with my cnc due to other commitments. However, I see you guys have all met. I'm in Havant and feel left out

    haha.
