    Unhappy CNC Router servo drive failiure

    Initially the z axis servo drive would just randomly stop working and wouldn't turn on until i shut the machine down and wait awhile.
    That used to be the main issue.

    I then foolishly switched z axis servo drive in place of a y axis one and thats when the whole machine basically won't turn on anymore (even after switching them back in their original places).
    When i hit restart button inside of Mach3 none of the drivers activate from sleep to run mode. You only hear a relay like on the video and drivers stay in sleep mode and you can only see bb on display the whole time.


    Do you have any tips on what i can do to get the machine up and running again? Thanks.

    You said the magic word.......Mach3.

    Very few on here know much about it and would recommend you try the hobby sites or a dedicated Mach3 forum.

    Looks nicely done though. I would start by seeing if there are any error codes on the drives and diagnose from there.

    Go to a site with CNC and Zone after it. I believe the software on this site won't allow a link to that place. That is where you will find a lot of people with hobby grade CNC Routers.
