  1. plotter blade/carriage not moving up/down

    I will be returning to Mansfield Tx. from my visit to family in Lakeland FL on the 26th. I had my niece happy I shipped the plotter to her and would be here to set it up. Do you have any suggestions on how to know which board/chip controls the solenoid chip and if it is practical to replace it?

    Please, anyone who may have an even remote mechanical remedy to this respond.

    Is there anything mechanical you can think of which may have come loose doing shipping and thus would not allow the z axis to engage to assuming the solenoid etc. are in working order? I had seen a post relating to such an issue but it was very brief and was regarding a different plotter. What do you think about this being a possibility? From a layman's point of view jostling etc. in shipping could cause mechanical issues but electrical issues when unit is not powered up I do not have the expertise to comprehend. I am very limited in that regard. Please tell me your educated view upon this. Perhaps the lack of my expertise on this matter combined with my desperation to not let my niece down has me grasping at straws as the time continues to wind down before I must depart thus leaving failure behind. I wish I could afford to buy her another plotter. I would do so. Thus I am in an all or nothing circumstance. Failure to be able to repair means my niece will get nothing. It would have been better had I not told her I was sending a working plotter and lap top to her for she was fired up to receive them and now nothing. Bad uncle, bad uncle. It is very sad.

    It moves freely left to right when plotting but not up and down. when pushed downward manualy it freely goes down and then freely pops back up. It stays in the up position with power on or off. thank you for responding to my post. m running out of time to get this ghost out of machine. The only sound made when plotting is the sound of the plotter head moving left to right.
