Arduino IDE basic coding help PLEASE!

by JTShots

I recently just picked up a Nintendo Switch lite. I wanted to make an Animal Crossing channel but sadly there isn't a video out. I searched up ideas online to help me find ways to take video and I kept on getting the same thing. String 30 second clips together. So the switch lite can take 30 second clips, but you had to string them together to get something longer. Unfortunately I can't keep track of taking 30 second clips every 30 seconds while playing a game. So I had an idea. What if I use an arduino and a servo to every 30 seconds hit the button for 3 seconds. My idea was every 30 seconds it goes down 90 degrees, stays 3 seconds, retracts and repeats. I would greatly appreciate it if any of you could whip up this simple code, PLEASE!! If you have any questions I will get to them pretty soon.
Thanks
-Joseph

Marlin 1.1.x bugfix on BQ Hepestos2

by Mastieb

hi Guys
, I am a relatively new 3D printing colleague and I have a problem with my BQ Hephestos 2.
Maybe someone can help me! You're welcome !
the printer itself works quite well, only the loud working noise and any lever problems make things a bit tedious!
so I gave the original BQ ZUM mega 3D board a new FW (Marlin 1.1.x bugfix 9.
everything works, only the LCD (BQ LCD Smart controller causes problems.
From time to time you can see parts of the correct symbols on the LCD, but this usually changes immediately after booting.
then you only see any characters or lines.
the LCD works with the original BQ FW 2.5.3.

PS. I am not a programmer and have traded high with tudorials etc. towards FW flashing with Arduino.

Ask for your support.

German would also be possible

Thanks for help

I still share my configuration .h and the LCD configuration.

just a few pictures from the LCD.
