Challenge for all educators to be brave and lead by example #msftedue2

The extra challenge, for all of us, is how do we stay focused and provide support as most of us are starting or are in the midst of testing and the end of the year approaches.  This has always be a difficult time for me.  I have found that, at this time of the year, new ideas are met with resistance and skepticism as teachers struggle to finish their curriculum.

I am thinking that you might have unplugged the stepper motor with the power on.  Or plugged it in with the power on.  If so, here is advice from the forum.  I will keep posting if I get any more replys.

Ummmm...  You never want to unplug stepper motors when the bot is powered.  He may well have blown some of his logic chips along with the LCD screen.  The
other possibility is a short in the X motor harness.   He can try powering off the bot, disconnecting the X motor harness from the motherboard, then powering up.  If that doesn't help, power down again and unjack and then reseat the ribbon cable for the LCD/keypad/SD card.  Unjack and reseat at both ends.

Now a problem with the Rep 2 is that I believe you cannot unjack from the motherboard
just the X stepper motor.  So you may just have to unjack all the stepper motors.
MBI went off an made custom harnesses which I'm sure reduced assembly time and reduced
assembly errors, but it did that by trading off post-manufacturing support costs:
harder to diagnose problems, harder for end users to maintain by using off-the-shelf
cable assemblies.
