My CNC Stopped Responding (also posted in forum)
I have a 30x30 and I’ve made several projects. Today I a made a project in Aspire and attempted to start a new project, but the machine won’t jog! Not at all. Not on X, Y, or Z . I am using Gsender which worked fine before. In fact this is the first problem I have really had with the Longmill.
I have connected to the previously working COM port and gSender says connected but it still wont jog.
When I run the file, I can see the simulation working but no CNC activity.
I noticed today that when I turned on the controller, I did not hear the usual thump of the Longmill turning on and coming to life.
I have restarted the controller, rebooted the PC (Win10) with no success.
Another post had a similar problem and it was a dead Arduino.
One post I read suggested typing $$ into the console and seeing what comes back but I don’t know what to expect
Is there a way I can send a message to the controller to move it so I can test it?
Any thoughts? More Suggestions to troubleshoot?
