3 axis board dip switches

Postby @CiDG » Sat Mar 31, 2012 10:17 pm

Hello and thanks for your time! I have an H1 complete kit and I'm not sure about the DIP switches on the 3 axis board. What is the proper configuration for these? As it arrived, I have a loud and weak Z axis (will not move and makes tons of noise as if fighting itself) when commanded to move. I was having an issue with my parallel port on the first computer I tried to use for this printer and all axis motors were buzzing loudly and the extruder motor was dead. After changing desktops, I found this issue and it led me to wonder about the dips.
Help is appreciated! Thanx again!
