i've been printing things for the better part of 3 weeks, initializing before each print, with no ill effects. This morning i printed a project without incident, then shortly after that completed, queued up some plastic hinges for this afternoon, hit 'initialize printer' and instead of a short beep followed by the printer moving to the limit switches on each axis, it just emitted a long, loud beep that wouldn't stop until i powered off the printer.
i've powered down, waited (fearing something might have overheated) and tried initializing again, but got the same, neverending beep result. i've checked the travel along the axes (all movements are smooth), looked for loose connections, but there's nothing obviously wrong. i suppose i could dismantle it piece-by-piece, but i'm not sure what i should be looking for.
i can't initialize the printer and i can't print. Any ideas as to what i've broken and how i might fix it?
