Wolf1130: Sorry you had trouble with your SD card. It is not uncommon... However, we are testing a firmware update that addresses this problem.

What number kit do you have? Below 220? See: [forums.reprap.org]
Otherwise, power the board from the PSU, by putting a jumper on JP9 (5V_EN). This should help your 5V problem.

It sounds like you have a nozzle blockage. See advice I gave here (this thread is about SD cards): [forums.reprap.org]

I having an issue with my Duet reading the SD card I am getting an "Can't open 0:/sys/config.g to read from. Error code: 12
Configuration file not found" error.

I have a red Ormerod I will have to dig out the paper work to see if its below 220

Things I have tried.

1: Updating the firmware to "FIRMWARE_NAME:RepRapFirmware FIRMWARE_VERSION:0.57a ELECTRONICSgrinning smileyuet DATE:2014-01-16"
2: Trying two other SD cards (4gb Kingston, 4gb scandisk) formatted using the SDformatter as recommended
3. I was getting 4.3V on the 5v feed with USB only so I connected the JP9 jumper and using the ATX PSU now getting 4.95V
4. Check the solder joints on the SD card (looks to be ok)
5. Tried putting a peace of card in with the SD card for a better connection.
6. Pressing the reset button shortly after turning the Duet on.

Is there anything else I should try before sending the Duet board back as faulty?

Thanks in advance for any help

Tombishop85, check the speed of your SD card. The capacity does not matter, its the speed that does. Anything slower than HIGH speed sd card will not work with the duet.

Also, a helpfull link on how to determine the speed of your SD card - SD CARD SPEED CLASS

The class 4 works fine for me, my problem is a couple of the pins are a fraction low, so I have to wedge something in with the card. (but as you have tried that, it's not your problem)

You have probably read it already, but there is a SD card troubleshooting guide here.

Hi all,

My ormerod was working with an SD card that I supplied, but it seems that the SD card holder/reader was not soldered down correctly and is now broken. Now even with new firmware and the same card I cannot get config.g to read. The card holder has now been damaged. Where can I get a replacement micro USB reader for my duet board? (I am in South Africa so an RS link or something will be best for me)

Hi tracyb

I thought you had contacted us already, and we sent you a new Duet? But I may be mistaken... If not, send me an email, with your name, address, RS order number and description of the problem, to support@reprappro.com and we'll sort out a replacement.
