    Default Shopbot communication issue.

    It's been a long time since I've posted here, so I don't know if this is the right place to ask a tech support question? I turned on the CNC to do a job this afternoon and the cut program says it can't find the CNC. Of course it ran fine a couple days ago. I can hear the cnc energize when I turn it on and the computer recognizes when we disconnect the USB cable at the circuit board. We're wondering if the plug in board the USB plugs into could be the issue or....? That's about the extent of our troubleshooting. Is this an issue that has happened to someone else? The Shopbot has been running flawless for years. It's an old PRT 48x96. If I remember right it has newer electronics in the control box, but it's been so many years since we've had to open it, I'm not sure. Attached photo links of inside the control box, hope they work? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I think we may have found the weak link. Replaced the USB cable. Good to go.
