Dek 265 GSX motor comms failure ...| 22 September, 2011
We just got this machine and it is not fully functional. I read somewhere here that the folder mint has some useful stuff. I run mint and it said that it cannot communicate with card 0,1,2,3 (x1,x2,x3,x4). It said to make sure the cards are properly seated. So I pull them out and back in, and some other cards and after a few tries it got pass that point. Then it went to move the table (z) and it said that it can not determine the type. I went home that day and the next day it was back to the comms error. I noticed that the battery on the cards are at 1.4v and have some salt on the terminals. We're getting new batteries but it is going to take a few days.

Have been through the same problem with the eurostep cards. The missing communications with the cards, suggest that some acid leaked from the batteries have etched tracks/and or the serial converters (soic8) on the cards. In all cases, clean the cards with some alchohol around the battery, and along the bottom of the cards. When you have replaced the batteries, you should be able to get it up and running again with the help of mint. If not, dekhead can help you.

I would recommend that you disconnect the colour monitor and replace it with a standard one.... these monitors are dodgy as hell and cause untold problems throughout the power circuitry...try it and see how you get on...
