I wonder if anyone has a solution to a DRO not working on the X axis of a Bridgeport. Its not the readout, swapped X and Y plugs and the X axis readout then functions, albeit its reading the Y axis.
I took the scale off the machine, dismantled it, cleaned the glass scale on one side with ISOPROP and a clean cloth, and then the reading head, but still nothing. All wires look ok on the circuit board. I wonder if the glass scale needs cleaning on both sides, more difficult to get into the lower channel, if the reading head needs to "go through" the glass ?
