sudden fail - extruder yes, all else no.

Postby mr_smigs » 2017-Feb-Sat-19-Feb

can't figure out what's going on,
literally this morning i printed without fail (Printrbot simple 2014)
then this afternoon, no changes, plugged the printer back in for another print,

and now all i can do is turn the extruder on and off.

none of the motors respond to manual control, and it doesn't respond to print starts.

update,
tried CURA instead of Repieter... when I hit print, it pre-heats, then the z-axis moves epicly slow...

Maybe somehow your EEPROM settings got scrambled. Sending an M502 command will restore "factory defaults". You might need to do some tweaking after that, but it should get you to at least a form of a runnable configuration if that's what happened.

ok,
in cura, pronterface console,
loaded up,
first Z adjustment (raise) it responded as normal...

then back to slow response.

put in M502

now all responses are slow.

z responds slowly, and like it's going in small steps to get there...
X and Y have no response.
