I was using a rancher to shear some sheep.  It was working fine when I first put it down, however it is not working anymore.  I tried changing the position of it and everything.  It just isn't work.  When I first put it down it sheared a few and then just completely stopped.  Does anyone have any information or advice that I could have?  Thank you.

posting a screenshot would be helpful.

did you put a chest near the rancher? do you supply the rancher with enough energy? and unless my memory fails me; have you checked inside the rancher for sludge?

Couple of basic questions:

Do you have anywhere for the wool to go?  The machine won't continue to harvest wool until there is room.

Is it powered?

Are the sheep within the defined parameters of the rancher?

​I have the rancher connected to a pulverizer and the pulverizer has two chests connected to it where the dye (from colored wool) goes to and the string goes to.  The string is then fed into and item duct which takes it to a steam dynamo to provide power.  So, there is definitely enough power because the rancher also says that it is fully powered.  Also, my sheep are in a 5x5 pen with grass blocks.

UPDATE.  I was watching a video on YouTube, and I noticed that all of the players machines had the idle bar moving up and down.  Mine is not moving.  Does that mean that there is not a sufficient amount of power?

SOLUTION!  Finally figured out what happened.  Sometimes I get a little too clicky with my crescent hammer.  I must have moved the pulverizer around in the wrong direction and it wasn't collecting the wool.  I noticed that something was acting weird with my chests too.  Well, long story short, I moved the pulverizer around and then everything started working again.  Thank you everyone for you help.  I really appreciate it.

      When I try and get on to my friends server recently, it says 
      "Internal exception: java.io.IOException: Bad packet id 72"
      I'm not sure what to do. I've tried deleting the mod-pack and reinstalling, signing out of my account on the Technic launcher, and him resetting the server,  but it  just does the same thing. I have tried searching the web but came to no conclusion why it does this. So here I am with an account, asking for help. 😢😬 The version/release is 1.6.4. But yeah any help would be great! The computer I am using is a mac if that helps.

      I downloaded a server to play with my friends, but after I opened the game I can't open the server, or if I open the server first the game won't open when I try to open, there are no reports it just crashes. So either the server is open or the game is open. My friend also tried but he can't do it either, the game is pixelmon reforged btw.

      Hey folks, I made a modpack, "Title Made To Not Plagiarize" and loaded it with a few different mods. When I install the pack from the Technic Launcher, it seems to download the zip I uploaded to Dropbox, but doesn't seem to actually install the mods. Some of the mods are older versions, but it shouldn't be a problem with most of them. (Here's the link for the file: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/s/iynms0xi9ifl1e2/TMTNPv2.0.1.zip). Any help would be appreciated, and my forge version is forge-1.12.2-14.23.5.2847-universal.jar. This is my first modpack so please be forgiving.

      Heya, I'm having an issue where none of the modpacks work. When I launch them they crash without an error message and it takes me back to technic launcher. I've tried allocating more RAM, updating graphic drivers and updating JAVA. Any ideas? Also going to attach the log from today.
       
      To clarify, vanilla Minecraft works fine from the official Minecraft.net launcher but not from technic.
