Probe doesn't locate X or Y axis - Just stabs into project after locating Z


I have a problem with my Onefinity Journeyman Pro and I hope someone here can stop my frustration.

I received it a few weeks ago and have completed 6 small projects on it successfully. Today I tried to set the XYZ using the Probe and this is what happened. Ignore the rattle sound at the end of the video, my overhead heater fan kicked in.

I homed all three axis and taped down a piece of 3/4" MDF.

Then used the probe on the lower left corner of the work piece, just as I have used it many times before, and this is what happened.

The Z locates fine and when the bit moves right to locate the X and Y, it goes about an inch past the probe block and stabs into the project about 1/4" and stops.

I have attached a couple of pics of the probe settings. That is a lie, as I couldn’t figure out how to attach the pics or the video.

I’m having the exact same problem. I just got the Journeyman set up a week ago and every time I use the xyz probe it tests for z fine shifts over to do x and rams the bit into the material.

It seems like it is adding 9 mm to the probe height but I don’t know how to fix it.
