MH721 took a crap..

Recommended Posts

While feeding vinyl yesterday, my carraige of the cutter went to the right against the red emergency stop button, and kept grinding against it. Turned machine off, turned it back on and just got welcome screen, flashing status light and motor that's locked into position. Argh. I can move carraige if machine is off, but not on.. Called USC today and they said they think its mother board, so I gotta tear into it tonight. Of course it's in the middle of a huge job. boo.

Unplug it from the board, try that first, maybe it will help, I'm not sure.

This is a cheap $10 part and could have died on ya -- and for sure it's an important element of the entire system.

Once you get this fixed I suggest you save your money for another cutter. If you are going to be in the business, you need a back-up cutter.

Agree with John, always good to have a spare if you intend to do this for a living and hopefully the motherboard will get you back in the game.

Most of the time just a tap on them got it to work, but if a mb then that is a whole other issue. Hopefully it gets you going. If you watch cl Joey I have seen graph techs not far from you for around 500 or so in the last year. Was just a little farther than I wanted to travel to pick up. Watch with search tempest.com
