I’m a brand new x carve owner and just finished building it. During the machine set up step all seems to be working except for the X axis does not move. The spindle on the motor tightens up similar to when you connect the green and black wires, but does not move when I try to move it with Easel in the machine set up phase.
Here is what I have checked so far to troubleshoot…
-Checked to make sure sure wiring is correct and it was
-Checked continuity from the motor to the g-shield on all 4 wires and it was good
-I moved the stepper from the X axis to one of the Y axis and the motor works on the Y axis
-I took the motor that I removed from the Y axis and put it on the X axis and it again did not work
-I adjusted the pot for the X axis. Still doesn’t move
I see 3 green LED lights on the g-shield when I power it on for each axis. For the Y and Z axis the LED stays lit until I move it then goes out and only comes back on when I move the axis. On the X axis the green LED just stays lit and does nothing when I try to move it.
From what I have done so far I believe the problem lies in the g-shield but if anyone has any other troubleshooting suggestions I would appreciate it.
