X controller not turning on

About to use the x carve and the x controller not turning on. I tried different outlets, checked everything and still no power. Not sure whats up. I just used it a couple of days ago with no problems.

As I took controller apart, I noticed a greasy substance around the capacitors. When I try to power on none of the green led lights come on.

You can see the substance around the capacitors.

The “grease” may very well be solder flux residue and dont normally cause trouble.

For the time being, can you bypass the E-stop button and try again?

bypassing the e-stop worked.


If it’s new, call Inventables and they’ll probably send a new one out to you.
