Help Needed – NEMA 17 stopped turning, also has weird torque holding under no power


I have made a video of this issue explaining how my NEMA 17 stopped moving while running some code and doing some careless touching of the driver terminals!

I am using an Easydriver 4.4, an Arduino UNO and a NEMA 17.

I was carelessly poking the motor terminals on the easydriver while the motor was moving, and after 5 or so pokes, the motor stopped moving and simply refuses to move any more now.

Should I start ordering a new motor – is this an issue with the easydriver? Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
