I have attached a video showing that motor J3 is not reversing. It will go forward but not backwards. When I click on the J3- it clicks and stops right away (shown on the video)
All the motors are working fine. The only issue I’m having is with Motor J3-
Here are the steps I took to solve this – but no luck
I changed the cable that was originally attached to Motor J3 to all other controls and it worked. Basically when I moved the cable from J3 motor to lets say J5 motor from the computer I pressed J5 +- and J3 motor worked. But when I took any of the other cables and attached it to Motor J3 those didn’t work.
I checked all the cables and connections, and all are good
Since I saw that the direction – of the Motor J3 is the one giving problems, I used the two cables (step = 12 and direction = 13) from the optional driver #7, and afterwards I modified the teensy software (so that J3 had step = 12 & direction = 13) still didn’t work.
I put a new stepper driver for the J3 Motor and still didn’t work.
After all these, I believe it might be a software control (ARCS J3 direction -) issue because no matter what driver or motor I use the J3 direction – is not sending signal as the video shows.
Another email will follow shortly.
