EGX 600 Reset HELP

Post by Alikatguitars » Fri Apr 14, 2017 3:17 am

Hi.
PLEASE can someone put me out of my misery.
I have bought an EGX600. I have Worked out how to do basics on it... however.. it came down a bit hard into some brass, it tried to engrave then an emergency stop warning cut the machine off.. i managed to do it a second time.. now evwrything moves.. X Y Z ..etc.. but the spindle will not fire up.. there are no warnings.. the belt has not slipped.. the machine has only done 49 hours.. the spring is tight and the auto Z is off.. so all basic stuff tried..
Apparently it can be reset somehow.. the nose cone was and is off.

Will try that..
Thinking it might have over worked and blown the spindle motor?

Hello I have the exact same issue. Everything moves except the motor won't spin/start. We bought a new motor on the advice of Roland, but it made no difference. We gave it to an approved Roland engineer up here in Scotland, but he was more a printer expert than an engraving expert and he had it for a year at his premises before I finally collected it being charged for a board in the process which he said he couldn't return (he swapped it to no avail). It was working fine, until a motor lock I believe..according to my staff. But as it was going home time they just left it rather than look at it, and the next day wouldn't spin up. If I lived down south I'd gladly take it to an expert but there's nobody up here with any expertise in these machines. It's been sitting now for 18months not being used, such a waste of a 10grand machine. Any advice, please?

I remember the machine and some of the early issues, I shall have a look into it and come back to you.
