Well fricky frack! This has just gotten worse and worse. It started locking up this morning only about 4-5 minutes in, and now, the gShield won't control the steppers at all. The blue power LED is flashing, and the X axis LED is also flashing. The axis seems to be pulsing on/off/on/off. I tried running a job a fifth time, but it's just no use. The gShield seems to be fried, or something! It's doing this pulsing if it's plugged into the Arduino or not, and as a test I tried pulling all the stepper wires and it's still just pulsing the blue LED indicator on/off/on/off.DasWookie wrote:I keep having problems with my job freezing up about 40 minutes in. It's happened 4 different times now, with 2 separate files, and three different controllers: Easel, Universal gCode Sender, and Grbl Controller.
I don't know what is wrong with this thing. It had been working perfectly, just only for 40 minutes or so, before it worked less and less time, and now, not at all. No wires were ever crossed, no axis was ever crashed causing missteps or skipping of the belt. I ran the Hello world with the sharpie, ran the circle diamond square for calibration confirmation, and then started trying to mill my part, and it's just gone to hell.
