Hello Folks — I’ve been running/learning the X-Carve 1000 for about a year using Easel Pro and controlling it with a laptop running Linux Mint 21.2 with no issues.
Recently some carves began stopping midway at random places for no apparent reason — no changes in setup, configuration, hardware or anything. From searching the internet I tried various things even using a g-code sender, Openbuilds Control, with the same result of the carves stopping (couldn’t get UGS to connect).
Using Openbuilds I tried tweaking some settings and now I’m in a position of not being able to control the machine in Openbuilds or Easel — no jogging, no running jobs, no homing, nothing.
So, I went back to Easel, uploaded firmware, removed all machines and tried setting up a new machine and couldn’t get past the first screen where you verify movement (jogging). I’ve tried different laptops, different USB cables, different USB ports, different AC circuits, etc. I even tried a Windows laptop all to no avail.
What can I try next?
Edit: Forgot to mention — both Easel and Openbuilds appears connected. Easel carve button turns green & Openbuilds shows “connected” but no movement on either AND the stepper motors are not locking like before.
