print problems
August 03, 2017 04:10AM
I have just recovered from a power surg, which played havoc with the electronics.
Now I have it back printing, but in the wrong place on the plate.
It is printing to one side and the back, how can I get it back to printing in the centre. Thanks.

As you have not stated what firmware will assume Marlin.
If you have Marlin firmware this should work.

Do a 'lets say factory reset'

Cura "PronterFace"
In your printer software send a M502 ' This will send the command to read firmware defaults.
Then
In your printer software send a M500 ' This will send the command to Save settings to EEProm.

Hi
How do you do that in Cura.
Thanks

Start Cura 15.04.6 ("any thing else may look different than this")
Plug USB cable into Computer and 3D Printer
Click on Machine "Select The Printer You Are Using Radio button"
Then Click on Machine Settings
A new Window will appear Select Serial Port "do not select auto"
Select Baudrate "Set your Baudrate"

Set up your print bed size if not already done.

Load a STL anything will do as we will not be printing it.

After it is loaded Click on "Print to USB"

as seen in image below




If you do not see this then you need to re-configure Cura.

Hi and thanks for that but my version of Cura is 2.5.0 and looks nothing like that.

Ive started fresh both Marlin and Arduino and I keep getting this sort of error do I just // them out or do I have to put something in.
Thanks for the help

Looks like you set the serial port in firmware to something bad... (just had another case of this recently)

it should be 0, its the serial port on the controller, not the serial port on the pc.

ie: in configuration.h
#define SERIAL_PORT 0

OK I've uploaded the firmware but now the X axis stepper is ticking. and my LCD REPRAP DISCOUNT SMART CONTROLLER does not work.
I have noticed that the ribbon cable socket is the other way around on this new board. The old board is the top one.

Thanks but it did not work it is still the same, printing at the back right corner, in fact it is trying to print slightly of board in both back and right edges.

Are you printing from SD or a host,
If host, check the bed sizes are still set correctly.
