not sure if the red light on the G540 for all axis should be green or it's normal that it's red?
few months ago I bought the V90 with USB controller - after having issues with loosing steps, communicating this with planet-cnc (which provide software), I decided to go easier way - bought Geckodrive G540 and trying set-up everything with Mach3
have power green light
using HT23-280-8 with 2.1k resistor, wired in series
check protobix web site for more detail - not able put url ;-(
could turn the motor through Mach3, didn't try calibrate or do more as I'm not sure if the red light is ok or not
somebody who can help??

thx, however I described my issue not understandable, sorry for that
so I do have the power LED green
the four led(s) for axis are RED
question is if this is ok or if these four lights should be green after plug the DB9 connector
once I plugged the DB9 connector the power LED stay Green and I could turn on/of the motor through Mach3, I just don't know if the RED light for all axis supposed to be green or if it supposed to stay RED
one more time - the POWER LED is GREEN - I don't have issue with jumper or E-stop
my question is on the 4 red lights - visible through hole for adjusting the trim
there is nothing in the G540 manual about these 4 lights, or I'm not able find it
You are referring to the 4 red LEDs you see looking into the 4 "adjust" holes. It is normal for them to be on. Those LEDs are being used as 1.8V voltage regulators on each of the 4 motor drives inside the G540. The red LED that matters is the one next to the green LED on the front panel. It indicates a FAULT condition.
@Mariss Freimanis GREAT - that is exactly what I was looking for, thank you so much to share your knowledge
for some people it's probably simple but for some very useful - thx again
