Pretty sure I burned out my x-driver... I replaced the cable and it was still acting up. I just got all of my replacement parts (full board, chips, motor, and belts). I plan to replace the driver chip first, but I wanted to check to see if you guys have any tips.
I didn't know to "tune" the driver potentiometer until after the fall, but the motor seems to operate fine on occasion. Any advice is appreciated.
Replacement A4988 drivers are so cheap (less than $2 and they come with a heatsink - as they should) that it's no "biggie" , just make sure to set the current output.
I broke a stepper wire. I didnt break anywhere noticeable and sometimes it worked because it would bend and reconnect for a minute.
Yeah...After troubleshooting for a couple days, I ended up having to replace the motor. The bright-side is I finally honed the pots for the drivers.
