Z axis total failure
Halfway thru a print, the z axis stopped moving. I shutdown, and tried manually to move the axis. I can move in X and Y, but not at all in Z. The PINDA probe appears to be working. It has its light on, and senses when metal is held up. I tried a "calibrating Z" first layer calibration. It homes x and y, but never moves in the z direction. help!!
i3 MK 3 s, running 3.9.0-3421 firmware
Has the printer ever worked?
Yes. It has been working well. I’ve printed a lot of items. It just stopped moving in the z direction.
Is the motor spinning or making any noise?
doesn't appear to. No motion observed. no binding noticed. able to manually turn screws to raise and lower head.
Z value has a "?". After a time, it goes to calibrating Z, but still no motion. then locks out.
