x-axis suddenly stops working and dies?

Recommended Posts

Hello,

While I was printing a simple 3D object the x-Axis suddenly stopped working and the printer started only moving the y and z axis. I switched the x with the y in the motherboard which made clear that the x motor still works but apparently the chip input of the x axis does not work anymore. Putting the y motor in the port didn't result in nothing, clearly there is something wrong with the input of the x axis ( I guess ). I reinstalled the firmware, reinstalled replicatorG but no success.. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance

I tried swapping the driver boards and it shows that the problem is in the board because still the port of the x-Axis gives no signal. I tried adjusting the step driver but also no signal of a fix. Got a little question about that one, i can't seem to feel the "stop limit" or something they are talking about on the wiki. It says that there is a max of turning it but I can just turn rounds and rounds. And it also raised a new question.. where can I get a new step driver?
