A few. First, check if the step motor driver is properly configured:

Also, you can check if the endstops are properly working, maybe they are shorted out causing the machine to think the printerhead is at the end all the time and thus refuses to move.

You can also try to swap out the X and Y motor connectors to see if the problem is with the motor or the electronics. If it's in the electronics, try swapping the step motor driver from X and Y (small boards).
