Setup Wizard In Universal G-Code Sender

PreviousPage 2 of 2

HOLD HOLD HOLD....Sorry that comes from my NASA days


Houston we FOUND the problem.  Incoming voltage (24V) was installed with reverse polarity.

The single stepper motor worked stupendously on X, Y and Z!

Now back to connecting it to the Spapeoko.


Senior Moment (Damn eyes)


(You know I bet it was this comment that got me distracted:  "1A Connect any voltage between 5 and 24V DC. The circuit’s been especially designed such that these power connections are unpolarised, so connecting plus and ground (GND) either way is fine.")

Yeah, I know...that's for the limit switches

Today I hooked up the Shapeoko and entered the Setup Wizard.

All went well, and I made it all the way to the second homing screen. Before I started, I changed the micro switches to NC as per the instructions.  After several successful homings, I noticed that the Setup Wizard froze.  Clicking cancel did nothing, so I closed the program, rebooted the computer and now it will not connect to SB.  (See photo).  FYI, Only one of the two LEDs light up (See photo).


Looking at an earlier post from someone who had LED 7 no longer working, your (Dan's) direction was to reflash the SB.

Need some pointers and direction. (Reflash Yes/No)

And please send me a new non-curupt HEX file since the downloaded file from both my PC and Mac both say it is curupt.


And what do you think happened?)

First, what version of Windows are you running?

windows  10 and ugs platform (2.0.9)

That should work.  Sorry.

🙁 thank you

Try devicemanager in Windows and see if you see the device driver "virtual comport" under lpt and com ports. If that driver is available then try another cnc application like cnc js to confirm the connection communication. If not then check or swap the usb cable. If still doesn't work then pm us and we help you further. Cheers Paul

Thanks for your answer. Lpt and com ports are showing. However, the same problem still persists.
I installed cnjs but I don't know how to use it. I think cncjs is also connected but I can't use the machine control part.
