    I found this attached video from another thread that was Resolved so I couldn't respond to it...and I didn't see a resolution...but I found my robo this exact same thing

    <iframe width="500" height="300" src="" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

    I convinced myself I had a bad motor by plugging it into another driver....It ran better but was very easily stalled.

    New motor arrives and it doesn't work. I have swapped ramps, changed ramps, tuned ramps and E0 will not properly driver a motor. SO maybe my motor is not bad and I now I have spares but after try 4 or 5 different ramps I'm lost,

    Any ideas my friends?

    There are only so many parts involved.
    Ramps, Stepper driver and stepper motor.

    (technically the Arduino too, but that is a rare case for it to be the problem)

    Ah geez,,,,sorry about this....cable is the cuplrit and it was even mentioned in the other thread I borrowed the video from! I tried the existing cable and the cable that came with the stepper....but I failed to realize the new cable wiring is different color order. I changed the new cable to match the existing color order and everything works now! Ok will tune it and off I go again :)

    Final point .... the black wire broke at the plug connection pin at the stepper motor and the insulation was holding it in place
