X axis stuck

I started a carve of 50 stars for a flag and after the first star the x-carve didn’t move right on the x axis but instead jogged left and got stuck there. Now I can’t even manually jog the machine through easel in either direction. Both the Y and Z axis still respond

Did the belt break?

No it didn’t. When I try to jog it tries to move but fails

Could the sprocket have came lose form the stepper motor?
Can you turn it off and manually move it along the X axis?

Yes I can push it by hand and it moves

When power is on, will X axis move by hand?
If yes, its possible your X-driver is toast.

You mentioned it went in the wrong direction which may indicate one of the four motor wires are broken. Stepper will move as commanded but directional control is lost with 1 wire broken.

did u get a resolve on this mine is doing the same thing

Hey Everyone, here is the page for the solution: https://inventables.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/4408508598163-X-Axis-Is-Stuck

That link is for the troubleshooting of the X-Carve PRO,
This thread (based on the date and the thread topic) is for an issue with the X-Carve (not pro)

The OP indicated they they can move it by hand, so its not the same jammed up issue from the XCP troubleshooting guide…

Not to mention, the thread is almost 3 years old, I sure hope they got the issue resolved already.
