    if the short belt is not moving, it may have two possible causes:

    1. the stepper motor is not working (defective motor or defective cable/plug)
    2. if the stepper motor works: the pulley on the motor shaft is lose (retighten the pulley)

    If the belt is moving, but doesn't operate the print head: check the pulleys on the upper axles for slip and retighten the set screws if needed, possibly print head alignment is required.
