1. Run the gantry all the way to the back and check that it is not out of square. It should trip the limit switch just before the right side hits the hard stop. If the right side hits first...you will error.

2. Power the control box and computer down, disconnect and reconnect both ends of the parallel cable linking control box to computer and wait about 1 minute, then restart everything.

Generally one of these will solve it.
