I put in a new SD Card with the v1.18 firmware on it to try and update the printer, and it just stopped working. I can push the power button, but even letting it sit for 1 hour, there is no change. Just a black screen, no matter how many times I try and disconnect/reconnect power. The motors for raising the Z-axis and tilting the bed also never start. It is dead quiet. But the green lights on the galvo driver boards are green, so I don’t think there is a problem there.
This all started because, while I have been printing successfully for a while now, the other day I decided to try printing something with a thread.
I realized the threads printed left-handed when the model was right-handed. I’ll attach a pic. for reference.
Anyway, upon checking the A,B,C,D corners to see how things print, I noticed that the Y-axis is fine, but the X-axis is actually inverted.
So, instead of the corner A being to the front right of the door, it is actually to the front left!
It looks like there is a motor direction or pin connection wrong somewhere?
For the record, all the X-related cables are connected to the X Galvo Driver, and all the Y Galvo drivers are connected to the respective Y Galvo Driver board.
So, I decided to update to 1.18 to see if a firmware update would fix any errors. And what happened? The printer stopped working!
