Strange noise in XY motion

Hi all!

After a strange noise during printing the Forbidden Watchtower by Kjai I paused, resume and paused again and quit this print. Looks like it also cause a layer shift:

What's going on here? By the way I'm using UM2(+) printer, Simplify3D v4 and thinkerMarlin 17.10.1 as firmware

 

1: Bearing problem?

2: Lack of lubrication on XY the axles? It's tought to move with printer shutted down.

3: Slicer problem? In preview looks fine. Firmware problem? 

4: Belt? Everything seems in place.

5: None of the above ?

    Make sure to power-cycle the printer. There was an inexplicable case where the print head made a sideways move during a print. Maybe this is related.

     

    You mentioned that it is tough to move the head by hand. Maybe the belts are too tight. You should definitely not move the entire printer around if you move the print head.

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
