    Default Hurco sm1cnc display help

    I went to use it today and no display. Well a little glow near the bottom of the crt. Everything else worked as I jogged the machine around and used it like a manual mill to get the job done. Where should I start it has a z axis monitor? 1984 make machine.
    Thanks

    I made a bracket to mount a regular monitor to our hurco ,unplug the touch screen and plug into the monitor.You have to use the keyboard function keys instead of the soft keys on the side of the touchscreen.Cheap fix.

    Thanks. But this is an older machine with bx controls I doubt the output is compatible with a standard monitor.

    The output is just composite video (just like the signals that run in the yellow plug on older VCRs).

    If I remember correctly, the wiring was in this order in the plug to the monitor:
    Video
    0V
    15V
    0V

    Thanks. I picked up a 9” monitor from eBay for $37 and it works. All I need to do is make a bracket and it will mount in where the old crt was. Sure beats the $750 estimate I got for a repair.

    We have used Dotronix for our Hurco monitor repair for a very long time. Prices have always been pretty reasonable. Pretty sure your old monitor is a Ball, as most of the B and BX machines used the same monitor. You might just contact them with yours. It would be interesting to find out if they are still as reasonable as they were in the past.
