Troubleshooting for the startup

Hello, I’m trying to do my first project and for some reason it won’t start. I get through all the normal procedure of homing the bit, lifting it, the turning on the spindle… and when I hit carve the machine just shuts itself off. I tried troubleshooting, moving the program to another computer and I’ve restarted my machine… I’m unsure what else to do.

MY Z Probe is broken thats why it isn’t listed… and the company said I could still do projects without it.

I see that the X and Y limit switches are indicating that they are pressed are these actually pressed, has the cnc crashed into these or are they maybe wired incorrectly ?
