  • Hi all, I’m having a problem. The driver works awesome for the first 10 seconds and then stops working. I can unplug the driver’s power and plug it back in immediately and it still wont work. If I unplug for a few minutes and then power it on it will work for 1-10 seconds and cease just like before.

    The regulator nor the driver is hot at all to the touch. I’m using a 12V supply with 1.5 amp max output. Power LED is on. The step and direction signal IS getting to the easy driver board.

    My initial instinct is that there might be a temp sensor kicking off the power but NOTHING feels hot. Its most likely something I’m doing, help please.

No public wish lists :(
