Hi all

Changed the bearings in the Z axis motor on my 5000 as they had seized . Very carefully trying to avoid damaging the encoder on the other end of the shaft.
However now that I have reassembled the motor and reset the encoder position I am still getting an error code " Error 4 " Blink count 5" which i was seeing
when the bearing had seized. Have I killed the encoder ? I can get it to work once if I start with the encoder alignment marks set but cannot achieve a second
homing and ultimately cannot proceed further.

I have another motor on order but at £2000 for the new one I figured it was worth spending £5 on a new bearing to see if it could bee repaired.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated .
