View Full Version : Control board intallation problem

02-26-2005, 11:56 AM
I have a new Alpha which seemed to have unusually rough motion whenever both the x & y axis were moving simultaniously. Shopbot sent a replacement control board, (which I just installed) to try to resolve this. Upon turning the power on I noticed the spindle fan didn't start as before and input#4 was blinking red with the word "driver" above it. Trying to use keypad control to move the carriage caused this message, "please reset drivers, location no longer accurate". I haven't found anything in the help files about this. What started out as a problem with edge chatter has led to trying different cutting tools, to rechecking all mechanicals on the machine, to looking for computer problems, to replacing the control board, now this? By the way, when we finally got this far in the trouble shooting Shopbot did get the control board here overnite on a Saturday AM.
Help anyone?

Turn thr control box off, then turn back on and press reset button. Drivers will be reset.

I've had that happen a number of times
