I was printing something over the night but when I woke up the print had just stopped. Ever since then the printer won't read the sd card, won't move in any axis or extrude, and the temperature just reads 0 for the bed and extruder. Any help would be appreciated.
I am trying to print a big job (https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2755765) in PLA and the print keeps messing up after several hours, but not in a consistent spot. Mostly it looks like the extruding just stops, but the printer keeps going through the motions so that when I come back and check on it, it is several layers higher than the last piece of plastic that was extruded. When I clear everything off and do a test print, it works just fine. I think the drive is still driving the plastic, because in one case the drive wheel had worn away the part of the plastic that was stuck, and in the most recent it had forced the bowden tube off and filament was all over the place in unmelted loops.
Any tips or ideas of what might be causing this after so much time? It sure seems like heat creep or the extruder getting plugged up, but I have had that happen before and it took work to get things working again.
I'm sure someone has covered this before, so if you happen to know where the topic is, I'd appreciate a link. Anyway, I keep repeatedly getting errors whenever I try to transfer gcodes over wifi to my Monoprice Select Mini Pro lately. I had originally heard that in those cases you have to powercycle the printer, and retry. I've tried this a bunch of times, and it's not working anymore.
Any suggestions? I'm also investigating getting another compatible micro-SD card, but the directions I got from tech support do not turn up any results when searching for them.
Howdy, I think my printer might just have given up the ghost but I'm not sure. Here's the deal, recently, long prints have just been stopping about halfway through but the bed/hotend were still on even though the printer was at the home screen, not the print screen.(Not a power outage) On top of that, the power switch just broke which isn't to much of an issue except that after crimping the two wires together, it won't turn on fully and instead just goes to a gray screen. After looking around I couldn't find anything similar so I suspect it's either a power supply problem or something to do with the software.
Any help would be appreciated or even a confirmation that it's actually dead.
