Xcarve 1000mm with JTech 7.4W not responding

My laser worked on Lightburn, but I must have changed a setting because it won’t work now. I searched the previous posts and cannot find an answer. My Grbl settings are as follows:
I jogged the machine and Z-Axis worked, then when I tried X and Y axes , I got this:

Waiting for connection…
Waiting for connection…

Port opened, waiting for response.

I had to restart the program after the X and Y axis failures, and I got the following for $$:

Are you sure it is hooking up to the com port.

I believe so, but I will check in the morning. Thank you.

Yes. It is connecting to the com port (COM3)

Forgot to mention that I have limit switches

This means the controller triggered a hard limit and aborted. What is your ‘Start From’ setting? You’re likely using ‘Current Position’ or ‘User Origin’ without understanding how those work: https://lightburnsoftware.github.io/NewDocs/CoordinatesOrigin.html
