Post Jittery Motor

I have a belt system. And I have used it with the chronocontroller to make a perfectly good timelapse, but now the motor is not working correctly. It is jittering around when I use the position, or cont. modes. It doesn't consistently go in one direction, but will start out in one, then sort of just switch back and forth, before settling on one noisy direction.

Do you know what might be causing this? I am not sure because it was working fine before, but not anymore. I can upload a video if you want.

Thanks

You chek the high, low speed and microsteping adjustments?
in the 23 Jan Version you can adjust this.
or the driver goes to heaven :-(

It sounds like a bad connection for the motor to me. The driver chip may have gone bad, but i have had pretty good luck with them. Normally when they go bad they just stop working altogether.
