Big Problem

Post by knowlzy0791 »

Not essentially Vcarve related but I need some help.

Went to run a program, used my (new) auto z height control, and forgot to plug it in :oops:

So my bit rammed into my aluminum plate, wedged, and tripped some sort of reset and it won't unlock. I finally break the bit to release the tension thinking this would reset everything. Now my error bar just says "Hicon Board Not Found."

What in the world have I done now?

When that happens on my ShopBot there is a reset button next to the emergency stop that has to be pushed to reset the controller boards. Perhaps there is a similar button somewhere on your machine?

Found a few. Pushed and flipped them all. Something worked. Thanks!
