Over the course of the last week or so, my GF would occasionally get stuck in “Scanning.” This could be cleared by opening the lid (which showed up in the GFUI) and then closing it again. More recently “occasionally” has become closer to “frequently.” Yesterday, after power-on it got stuck in “Centering.” I checked the WiFi connection, (no change in signal strength or interference from the neighbors’ access points), but restarted things just for drill. I then tried again. this time it got past centering, and I was able to complete a few cuts – but not without “Scanning” difficulties.
Today, it started up just fine – did the “Centering” and initial “Scanning” of the bed as quickly as ever. But it wouldnn’t do any more; it just got hung up in “Scanning.” Restarting it didn’t help. Now it can’t complete the “Centering” operation.
After a quick search of the forum, I had a close look at the five places the black ribbon cable plugs into things. They all look okay to me:
Suggestions for further troubleshooting would be most welcome.
