Ramps Reboots!?!
January 11, 2015 09:17AM
I have a Ramps 1.4 (from Makerfarm) and it's worked for well over a year without issue. I've having strange problems lately where it will just reboot in the middle of a print. It happens at random times during the print and may be getting worse.

I used to have the whole printer in a cabinet and figured it was due to heat, now I've cut a hole in the cabinet and have cool air being blown by a fan directly on the ramps board. Didn't seem to make any difference.

I also tried a different power supply.

Before I just start throwing parts at it, any idea if it's the ramps board or the mega that could be causing the issue?

check wires on moving parts. you can have just a broken wire inside the insulation, as i did once. i had the same problem and it was in the conection betwen the psuply and the ramps
i hope it helps.
