X Motor not moving properly (nothing to do with belts)

RE: X Motor not moving properly (nothing to do with belts)
Hi,

The Y Axis (the motor controlling the pen) will allow it to move up and down when sending the code to "write" on the glass.

The X axis (motor controlling the left and right movement) will not move more than 1/2 a step (i.e it only turns one 1/2 a step) when trying to write, so it only tries to write up and down.

I've tried swapping Motor 1 and 2, tried swapping connectors, tried swapping the stepper driver (red board), I've tried other NEMA 17 motors as well (I have a lot of spares for my 3d printers)

It's all the same, when any NEMA 17 motor is connected to the X Axis port (the left and right movement) it will not turn when trying to write.

Please see attached pictures.
