Laser Gear Grinding at Power Up
Laser Gear Grinding at Power Up –
I just replaced the laser on a unit.. Ver 4. Anyway Works fine, reads, etc etc fine. The problem I have is, when i first turn on the unit, and the laser resets to the front (?). When it reaches the front to the spindle it like grinds (clicks) for a little bit or like it just doesn't move with the worm since there is no more space to move.
So like the worm motor keeps going but the laser has no more space to move.
So this happens for a short second until the laser moves back away just a bit, as in a ready position.
check out the white tab that rides the sprial and see if it is full of grease or just worn out. it sounds like it is not riding the motor right.
