G540 In-The-Field Troubleshooting and Tuning

HOW TO EVALUATE YOUR G540 FOR PROBLEMS, REPLACE A DAMAGED AXIS, AND RE-TUNE THE UNIT

The G540 is protected against the majority of issues that can happen on a stepper system but sometimes, through user error or external forces, a G540 can be damaged. The video below seeks to show you how to do the following:
 
 

1.) Evaluate the G540 for a problem

2.) Determine on which axis this problem emanates

3.) Diagnose the damaged G250XR3 to see what kind of damage is present

4.) Replace that axis with a known good G250XR3

5.) Reassemble the G540 and test functionality

6.) Re-tune the G540 for optimal low speed smoothness
