Grbl help. Arduino not connecting with gcode sender

Post by sweetv13 » Mon May 20, 2019 3:18 pm

Well I have been trying to connect the arduino with the g code sender and nothing happens. I had upload the grbl via x loader to the arduino and then blink the arduino and orange light blinks. Which is suppose to be ok but then I open the g code sender and nothing happens. I put open in the program and nothing. Not even an error just nothing. Cant figure out whats wrong. Did I dO something wrong? PLEASE HELP

Things to check:

- OS allowing access to USB
- USB device driver for Arduino installed --- device shows up in inspector
- using correct baud rate
- Arduino properly powered
