Alright so I just fixed an issue with the printer where the extruder would not heat, and orange of the wire going to the extruder board was internally broken. So after I thought that I had everything working. So I was checking all of the motors and seeing that they move in all directions, X and Z move in + and - directions no problem. The Y axis only moves in the + direction (towards the front). I thought maybe it was just a software glitch, so I tried a print and again it only moved towards the front of the printer, causing a crash. I have a da vinci 1.0A with repetier .92. Everything worked before the printer broke Any Suggestions?
Check the Y home sensor and wires, to check or if damaged you can use the top lid sensor to replace it
Ok so I just found that if i let the printer sit for a while on the display it says stepper disabled. I don't know if the is any help, but I thought I would add it. I checked the wires going from the board to the stepper and they were all reading the same, checked the home sensors for x and y, they both were ok, I am not sure what to check anymore.
it is normal , after some time of inactivity motor are disabled to avoid to be hot for nothing
Any suggestions on where to go from here, any idea what the voltages should be coming from the connectors? I'm running out of ideas
Honestly I don't like repetier because even though it is pretty cool with the menus and stuff you can also get weird software issues with it. the only thing I can thing is it's repetier or the stepper motor. Could be a wire connecting it that reverses the direction.
The best way to see if it's a wire is to move the wires around to see if it moves back on the y axis. If it's a loose connection you might be able to find the wire.
so can i do unpluf the sensor to test it or will it do the same thing?
well... I found that the sensor connector was out on one side, I pushed it in all of the way and all better.
Like I said - no luck at all
