    Do you have Soft Limits enabled? Grbl won't allow you to move beyond where the soft limits are. So
    A) forgot to home, thus machine is unsure where the physical bounds are. Thats why jogging away from the soft limits, allows you to jog back toward them
    B) max travel values is incorrect for your machine - grbl uses those values, to know how far away from HOME it can move
    C) homing directions or axis directions incorrect

    @Peter Van Der Walt
    I had the soft limit enabled. After running the homing sequence the X, Y jog problem is fixed. I guess I will have to do homing at the beginning of each session?
    I still have to fix the USB connection problem (hopefully with emery cloth/ stick) to update the latest grbl setting into Interface.

    If you have Homing enabled, yes, you should always home after startup, an abort, a crash, etc so Grbl can reestablish where the physical bounds are

    Usb: see latest memo here: INTERFACE CNC Touch Controller - cleaning port didnt end up helping, i think we saw some observation bias in the recommendations from customers who suggested it helped them.

    Another possibility: My interface jogs only a short distance when it resting on the MDF table surface, my frame is earthed and screwed down to the MDF surface, when I pick it up in my hands its fine, obviously the capacitive touch ratio or something make it do like that.

    Tricky in some environments, something (nearby emf field) may be affecting self-calibration.
