  1. #1

    Default Broad Sensor problems

    I keep getting clean broad sensor error. I cleaned the sensor same error.

    Did sensor test 10" wide broad readings are across broad 155 to 134 as I go off broad reading is 0.

    tried it with a 4" broad that I use most of the time and I get the same error

    Can someone help me with this before I call support.

    I have a B model machine that has been updated with a Carve Tight Spindle.

    What are the readings on the 4" board when you get the error? When was the last time you replaced the FFC cable?

    It was never replaced the machine has less than 60hrs on the cut motor. I got it used with only 55 hrs. on it. I had to change the chuck as it came apart on my 2nd carve. I just have been doing small carves 3.5 by 12" saying plaques. I live in and old farm house and our front door has been replaced and I want to carve a saying on the broad above the door

    The head pressure is ok and the 10" broad is poplar - 4" is pine

    Inspect the FFC cable for any cracks or breaks where it comes off of the black support bracket in the back of the machine.

    What is the reading with a piece of white copy paper on the board? Should be about 156.

    Do you have any bright LED Lights shining on the machine. My Wireless Video Camera floods the area with light from the 6 LED's and causes problems.

    remove the sensor and clean the inside of the lens. You will need to take it apart to get to the dust inside the housing.

    To remove the board senor, raise the head to full height. From the left of the keypad side, look under the head at the Y truck. You should see the senor being held in by two phillips head screws. A stubby screwdriver is needed to remove the screws. Ocne lowered a bit you should be able to undo the wire harness. You now should have a board senor in your hand.
