    Write Port Error

    finally got it figured out tonight. I did like skeetz recommended, went with the keyspan adapter. Plotter is nice, went from a 24"x62" wide cut to 33"x 1800" with the mh driver. Some times after cutting the cutter head doesnt return to its origin and I have to hit reset. also on a couple cuts, it just did its own thing and stoped out in the middle of nowhere. anybody else experience this?

    very nice work
  11. got the part saturday, installed and no change. I ordered a new MH871 on Saturday and it arrived today. cudos to UScutter for the quick shipments. I'm still not cutting action with the new plotter. I have installed the sign blazer software and waiting for a conformation code to be emailed to me. I'm using the usb, com 3 port, I'm also using flexi starter, when I try to cut something , I get a "cant open port" in the production manager. Any ideas? thanks in advance
  12. Thanks for the info. Is there any videos showing the repair? Thanks again
  13. Hi, this forum has been a great aid to me over the last 5 years but maybe this time it might be my plotter is wore out. I have no down force, You can crank as much down force as it has and its like the blade is just glideing across the vinyl. I've checked to make sure the wheels are in the track , thats all good. When I use to turn it off and then turn it on the cutter head would kinda snap to attention, now it just kinda rolls the vinyl on the pinch rollers and the cutterhead doesn't move like it use to. Its will still go back and forth on the track, just no pressure. My set up Refine MH721 com3 connection flexi starter windows 7 this plotter is 5yrs old, it was bought in 07, maybe its reach its end? any help is greatly appreciated
