I've had my printer for about a year and I am very happy with it. However today the calibration seems to have gone wonky. The left Right axis does not extend to the far right. It is about 2" (5cm short). I have tried recalibrating but that has made a small improvement. Recalibration has stopped the crash into the left hand limit.
What do I do to fix the problem.
Also there is a small screw at 45º on the left right guide bars. It is in the orange plastic above the stepper motor This screw is loose. What does it do? How do I fix the problem and is the calibration problem related to this loose screw?
Thanks in anticipation
First, the loose screw: refer to the manual, is this the X-end-motor: tensioner screw? This is used to set the correct belt tension and if it's loose this will at least contribute to your problem.
Try to find out why it's loose; has it torn out of the mounting? Has it lost its captive nut?
Thanks I will give it a try and let you know
