Default Errors at Initialization

Been off the grid for almost 4 years and got started back up about a month ago in my hobbie shop. Going great until today when I Initialized. Got an "Aborted - Soft Limit Low X and Z." The indexer was also trying to turn which I don't think has ever happen.

I can manually move the gantry in either direction on the Y axis. Only to the right on the X axis. Z will not respond at all.

Also have the red arrow on Z in WINCNC.

Very surprised the CNC has performed as well as it has since it basically sat 4 four years. I think this is an easy fix if you know what your are doing.

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks RD

The red arrow in the WInCNC screen is saying you haver hit a limit switch.
I would check out the limit switches and make sure they are good as a starting point

Easy fixes are the best! Glad you’re up and running again.
