Good point - if you check the fuses in-circuit, you can get a false "good" indication.

Yep. Learned something new today. Testing the fuse in the board made it look fine. Could a short in the layer fan have blown the fuse?

Re: No Power to Rambo

You did remove the fuses from the board when you checked them? Nope. This was the problem. the top tiny fuse mounted directly left of the power input to the board was blown but read fine when tested in the board. Thanks for the tip. Now I have to figure out why it blew. Could a short in one of the ...

I would carefully check the power input terminal block and make sure it's tight and not discolored. Were you printing via SD card or USB?

Re: HE280 reading DEF after install on v2

A thermistor is a resistor that changes resistance with temperature. Testing it's condition by measuring voltage going through it is like measuring the diameter of a car tire by checking the internal pressure. ;) Don't test the thermistor with the RAMBo powered up, or with the thermistor connected ...

Re: HE280 reading DEF after install on v2

There's a wiring issue or the thermistor is bad. You can check the thermistor by measuring its connection point on the PCB with a multimeter. It should read around 100k-ish at room temperature. g. So I measured everything. Across the thermistor wires going to the accelerometer pcb, it read about 14...

There's a wiring issue with the thermistor.

Re: Bad Prints

The heat sink/break should not be in the filament path when calibrating the extruder drive (unless you remove the nozzle, which would be more trouble and have a less accurate result than removing one end of the Bowden tube). Extrusion is controlled at the drive, and a longer extrudate will always c...

Re: Bad Prints

Looks like underextrusion to me try to lower all your speeds to 40mm/s and increment you temperature for 5°C. Once you get the correct amount extrusion speed thing a little up. Also if you are using H280 check the bowden tube inside the extruder! If the hose isn't well put until the bottom of the e...

Re: Bad Prints

Do you hear "clicking" or "popping" coming from the extruder when you print? Also, try telling MatterControl to extrude 100mm of filament. Measure the strand that is produced. If it is less than 100mm, then you might have a clog, in the heat sink/break. Or, something might be sc...

Re: Bad Prints

Check your extrusion multiplier, and your filament diameter. You put 1.75 mm that's correct ? Have you measured ? If it's less and if you let the extrusion multiplier to 1 you can have underextrusion filament diameter is correct within + or - .01 mm. I obtained the number from averaging measurement...

Is your part fan on? It needs to be off (or at a minimal speed) for ABS. Also check that your hotend fan isn't blowing air downwards. I had that issue on my printer, and ended up making a shroud for the hotend fan so that the intake end wasn't flinging air downwards and spoiling one end of the ABS ...

Scratch what I wrote earlier

You are right the Thermal Safety Fuse on the hot end is busted. I assume it happened when the hot end randomly heated up when I first powered on the machine. I guess the question now is why that happened.
