Flashing the J Tech firmware on SO3 controller board.

Postby Lonnie » Fri Jun 24, 2016 8:32 am

Hello,
I purchased a J TECH laser and trying to refresh my SO3 control board w/ J TECH's GRBL, however, I can not flash anything to the control board.

While using a MAC < Hexloader < I RCV this message;

avrdude: stk500_recv(): programmer is not responding
avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x00

When using X-Loader on my Windows machine, it just hangs there with no response.

Attached is a screen shot of my current settings from Carbine Motion and I also attached a picture of my controller board as well.

Serial/COM port and baud rate setting are good on either OS I use because I can send g-codes to my SO3 via universal G-code sender or Carbine Motion and it works.

I have purchased both PicLaser and Laser Etch and would love to start learning and using but the only way to turn on and off the laser is using the "mode selector switch" on the J Tech driver board and that laser just cuts aways with no "on/off" between cuts. Wonderful! HA

Recommendations?

Any suggestions?

Hi Lonnie,

We have no experience with the Carbide Motion board and it's not in the Device list in the X-Loader, so it may not work. I assume you tried all Devices? BUT, J-Tech Photonics claims it does work on this page: http://jtechphotonics.com/?page_id=3145

I would be concerned the pinout may not be the same with the different grbl versions considering the Carbide Motion board is proprietary. However, the pins could be the same, but I can't answer that question either. I can only suggest contacting J-Tech about this as they seem to know more about it then we do.

Jeff,

I did try all the devices listed on X-Loader, however, no luck. I'll reach out to J-Tech and see what they have to say.

Thanks.

Lonnie
