I am assuming that the card that was changed was the motor driver card. Did they change the card with a known good board or just swap the X and Y cards. If they swapped cards it appears that the card that is now in the X motor slot is bad. Open the a

Is this Corrosion? We found our boards with this issue 45 days after they were delivered to us from supplier. The board finish is HAL Leaded. But I noticed that the corrosion like issues are coming form the tiny via holes with SILVER EPOXY FILLING.

Necoleta, PWB Blistering/De-lamination may not be due for Titanium finished threads / holders which is typically being used to draw high Shelf Life of Pallets and even flow across Auto Wave Soldering rails. There is also nothing to suspect on Liquid
