Wizard 9000 Head Return Home Error

    So I've been having this issue for about a month now where the cutting head has a funny stutter when returning to home after cutting the outside dimension with my 90 degree tool. Upon returning to home after the stutter, the blade on the head does not get back to it's intended vertical position and stays cocked at an approximate 45. The issue is only happening with the 90 degree tool so far that I've noticed. It's super rare that I use anything but either the 45 degree bevel or the 90 degree blades.

    Here's the video

    Any help or advice would be awesome. I've not tinkered or touched any of the calibration settings since I bought it. I did buy it used and this is the first issue I've had with it in over three years.

    Thanks guys!

    This might sound funny, but have you tried unplugging and reattaching the large black cable from the box to the machine at both ends? This re-seats all the pins in the connectors to assure the digital info is transferring properly. Any odd behavior issues I have ever had with my 8000 have been solved by doing this. It couldn't hurt, anyway.
    :cool: Rick

    Thanks Rick! I've not really tried anything yet. I just stopped cutting the outside dimension and using my 90 degree blade so far. I'll do this today. Thanks again for the tip! I'll leave an update as to what happens.

    Came on to actually say that I got it sorted and the fix was what @Rick Granick suggested. Thank you for that Rick!

    @GUMBY GCF , it was a mat for a frame with a name in it. Letters were mounted to foam core and floated behind that mat. =) I'll ask my wife if she got a picture of the finished piece and post it up.

    Thanks for the help guys! Really really appreciate it.

    Great! Glad that worked out. As I said, any odd behaviors of my Wizard have always been cured by doing that. Sometimes I just do it pre-emptively before starting it up.
    Stands to reason that repeated movements/stop-start could cause misalignment of connectors like that occasionally, and you know how computers are... any little error can cause them to go a bit crazy.
    :cool: Rick
