I try to use my cnc today and It’s not working at all. I turn on my powerbar and the controller. Usually I heard axis-motor noise for 1 second when I turn it on but today I don’t heard something. I can see 4 red lights on in the controller. I checked all connectors. Everything look good.
I can’t connect the cnc with ugs and cncjs. It still offline. Last week all working fine
@GuillC If you are running with a windows pc, go into device manager and see what com port your Mill is on. Then go into either ugs or cncjs and make sure that it is trying to connect to the same port. I don’t know much about cncjs, but ugs will “connect” to the first com port it can find, even if the Mill is not connected to that port.
@GuillC I’m stumped Guillaume. Just to make sure that I understand what you are saying (I’m slow, you see.), with the Mill controller plugged into a USB port on your PC, windows sees the Mill’s arduino on com4. Both UGS and CNCjs, are trying to connect to com4 at 115200 baud, but neither can connect. All 4 drivers in your Mill controller are lighted up.
Your Mill has worked before, though.
Is the arduino controller that you use for simulation plugged into the same USB port on your PC? If not, for giggles, you may want to try connecting the Mill to the same USB port as your arduino. I appreciate, though, that this is a long shot.
You are not slow, I’m french canadian ,I may have difficulty expressing myself hehe.
You understand well, my controller is on com4, I tried each of my 3 USB port on my laptop, I changed to com4. My arduino board for simulation is on com5. I try to switch both (com4 to com5 and com5 to com4. My arduino board for simulation work on both COM. But the controller doesn’t. I try 3 usb cable.
My CNC work fine until yesterday (it was maybe 3 days since last use).
As I mentioned above. Each time I turn power ON the controller without usb connection, I can hear ‘‘click’’ sound in each axis-motors, but now it’s totally quiet.
I just send a email to tech support, hope to get some issue. Hope to have an answer quickly.
@GuillC You expressed yourself just fine, Guillaume. I’m sure that the Sienci guys will take care of you. It sounds like the arduino in your Mill is misbehaving. (Don’t you just love that technical talk?)
One thing that I’ll throw out that does not help at all is that, from time to time, when I turn on the Mill, I don’t get the “connect sound”. I have no idea why. Things work, though, so I’m thinking that it’s not a big deal.
