X-Axis stuck / stuttering

Sep 16, 2018 3:30 pm

Hello,

My x-axis seems stuck / is stuttering. I think my board may be broken but I'd like to see if anyone has any ideas on a solution before I order another board.

My x-axis stepper was behaving like this: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B8ndg_ ... 1wUUE/view (from https://shop.prusa3d.com/forum/others-a ... t2079.html ) . I separated the stepper from the frame and belt to make sure it wasn't just getting stuck, but it still has the problem: https://youtu.be/ze-zDSuz1x4

I moved the motor to the y axis port and the problem went away, leading me to believe it's the board, not the stepper. The other post mentioned it might be a bad connection, but everything looks physically fine on my board as far as I can tell.

I tried reflashing twice, and doing a factory reset on the board. No luck there either.

Thanks for any help or tips anyone can give. I'm hoping I don't need to buy a new board but I'm thinking that may be my only option.

P.S. Everything was working fine until the other day when I added a raspberry pi zero for octoprint. I've removed the pi for this testing, but it's possible I accidentally broke something when disassembling or reassembling (though I was very careful and didn't have to force anything. Maybe static fried something??)

I’m also having this problem. I put in the new extruded parts and now it’s doing this...

Edit: not sure if this is the same problem you are having, but it looks like I over tightened the extruder and x carriage and that caused the bearings to start binding up.

Unfortunately that doesn't seem to be my problem - the problem goes away if I plug that stepper into another port so I think it has to be something wrong with the board.

Thanks for the reply, glad you figured out what was causing your issue!
