My x axis motor sometimes works and most times doesnt work but there is always a continual base as to where it does not work. I dont know how to fix it... if you can help, I would really appreciate it!
P.S. the deadzone is in the front left side about 3.5 inches into the middle all the way to the left.
I've had similar problems from both a failed main board and faulty wiring. Your issue sounds like it may be a damaged X-axis stepper motor cable. It shorts out when in a specific position and causes the intermittent fault. Try to replace this first. You can make your own cable up. Use good quality cables, not the OEM ones.
BTW, I've recently had this same problem with my machine again. The dead spot was front right. A second new cable sorted it all out again.
