    Trying to cut some vinyl and got a Y-alarm twice in a row.

    Now we get no power at all. About every 5 sec hear a click and the power light flickers on but it's not powering up.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks for your input.

    Something caused the motor to jam and it has shorted out your motherboard. You will need to find out what caused the jam of the Y motor and replace the motherboard. We service Graphtec cutters and can help you with this.

    Thanks. Don't think it's worth replacing the motherboard.

    Guess I'll be in the market for a good used plotter as soon as finances allow.

    What size cutter would you be looking for?

    Not in the cards right now. Have to wait until cash flow improves.

    No cutter no cash flow.
    A FC7000 isnt that old. How can it not be worth fixing? Unless the thing is beat to ****.

    Replacing the motherboard alone would be about $900 and that doesn't address the Y Axis issue, which adds more.

    I might wind up getting this fix. I'll have to think on it.
