Re: LCD reset when heating hot end

Got the board to work. Turned out to be a bad solder from the factory. I just separated the two posts and voila. Now I need to figure out why temps are reading DEF. Everything is brand new, so it has to be a connection of sorts. Thermistors were just replaced.....

Re: LCD reset when heating hot end

The fan for the rambo does turn on. I am pretty familiar with this board at this point and have many of the little fuses on hand (bought a roll of them) just in case :-) I'll check some more around the board with the ohm meter. Thanks.

Re: LCD reset when heating hot end

Thanks Cale. I tested the power input and it checks out fine. I replace all the fuses just to see if maybe it would show some sign of life, but still nothing. I'm baffled at this point and considering selling it if I can't fix it.

Re: LCD reset when heating hot end

Got a new rambo and installed it, flashed the newest firmware and fired her right up. Immediately the bed temp goes Def to -50, no was at 20. Then the lcd just goes black. I snapped a pic of the board wiring before I replaced it and reinstalled it according to my picture and the other online at seem...

Re: injection mold machine

What molding machine are you using and what are you injecting? How many parts do you want to get from one mold? I've retired my SLA printer for another year. The software is still not up to snuff and I don't have a compelling need for the technology to deal with it. I'm buying a small benchtop mold...

Re: LCD reset when heating hot end

Well, it looks like I won't be getting the mini I'll just go with the stock version of the RAMBo that came with it to save time and so I can resume my work making prototypes. I love 3d printing and all, but I got into it to make prototypes and just need to have the machine working. I am learning to ...

Re: LCD reset when heating hot end

NOT rude at all!!! I'll reach out to Ultimachine and see what they can do/recommend. I'm considering that mini rambo for the $85. Will my current wiring arrangement fit the mini the way it does the stock Rambo board on the V3? Hope I worded that right You answered so many questions and took a lot of...

Re: LCD reset when heating hot end

You Xeno! Can you recommend a cheap replacement board? Found the RAMBO on Amazon for $180 and the mini for $140. Is the mini about the same thing?

Juicy, I had that issue and it was a loose connection in the whip connector. Have you looked there?

Re: LCD reset when heating hot end

On the face of it, I'd suspect power sag - does it happen when only heating the hot end and not the bed, or only when heating the hot end and the bed? g. Geneb, we've already gone over the bed+ hotend or just hotend thing. It is a hotend issue, as apparently the bed doesn't matter. I might try watc...

Re: Should I try a different hot end???

Thanks. I just received my new he280 from seeme and installed. Same issue! Has to be the Rambo at this point, I think :-) Led 4 lights up red, then the lcd shuts down and restarts when turning on either the heat or fans.

Sorry, I should've been more clear. I cannot get the stock HE280. What other hot end will work? Any other accelerometers work?

Since the only "cash" I have is in the form of amazon store credit and seemecnc doesn't accept amazon payments any longer, is there another hot end that works well with the V3? I currently have the HE280 and love it, but Amazon doesn't have it, so I am considering a different hot end. E3D?...
