Error Code 'Qx14 1': Laser Module Movement Failure to the X-axis Zero Position
Qx14 1 error code indicates that the laser module fails to move back to the X-axis zero position.
Normally, the laser module should automatically return to the machine's zero position in the Z/Y/X-axis sequence when the machine is turned on or when the processing is completed.
If you see a pop-up notification with this error code, please refer to the steps below to troubleshoot the issue.
#1 Check the Firmware Version
Connect the machine to the software.
The computer should be connected to the Internet.
Check if the firmware is up-to-date as shown in the picture below.
If the issue persists after updating, please move on to the next step.
#2 Check the Motor
Connect the machine.
Press Ctrl+F1 on the keyboard to enter the debugging interface below.
Command+F1 for Mac, add the Fn key if it does not work.
Click [X+] and [X-] to observe whether the laser module can move smoothly on the X-axis.
If not, please turn off the machine.
Unplug and replug the X motor cable again as shown in the picture below.
If the issue persists after rebooting, please replace the X motor cable, motor, and motherboard one by one.

#4 Check the Limit Switch
Turn on the machine and unplug the X motor cable.
Put an iron sheet into the sensor of the limit switch.
If the red indicator is on when the iron sheet is placed as shown in the left picture below and goes off when the iron sheet is removed as shown in the right picture below, please replace the X-limit connecting cable and the motherboard one by one.
If the indicator does not change at all when the iron sheet is inserted and removed, please replace the X limit switch.
If the issue persists, please move the laser module to the center of the X-axis with the power off.
Take a video of the X-axis reset after power on, and provide it to the after-sales technical support for further analysis.
