Re: RAMBo Problems?

I could luckily witness that this happens when the nozzle temperature suffers from huge shifts. And when I say huge I mean that the temperature indication can jump from 260 to 180 degrees Celsius in a second and back to 275 etc. for several minutes, before it stabilizes back to more normal shifts o...

Re: Temp is displayed when thermistor is disconnected

The thermistor values are data in the program and are calculated from the data field, so when the thermister is missing it will display the lowest value from data (or the open circuit value).

Re: RostockV2 hot end won't heat past 145C

I purchased some 12V 40 watt heaters and they sent me 24volt 40 watt heaters, 24V 40 watt heaters = 15 Ohms in parallel 7.5 ohms 12V 40 watt heaters = 3.8 Ohms in parallel 1.9 ohms + or - 10%tolerances If they sent you 24v heaters this would account for the resistance you are seeing. It would also a...

Re: PSU shot?

Power Supply Supply.jpg When you take the Supply apart you will see the Fuse 6.3amp, and below the Fuse is the thermal resistor. On my 12V 360Watt power supply both RT1 and the pigtail fuse both burned out. CAUTION READ WARNING ON POWER SUPPLY BEFORE OPENING CAUTION ELECTRICITY CAN BE HAZARDOUS TO Y...

Re: PSU shot?

Trouble shooting a power supply is a simple process. You can start by measuring the output voltage on the supply leads. If you have no voltage there then you can measure the ac voltage supping the power supply on the input leads. Do not forget to measure the power switch as they too can burn out. If...

Re: Advice to have a good Print

I don't see maintaining 4 Slicers any trouble as once they are set - basically they are set. All Slicers appear to be similar in operations. Once changes are made simply save the Profiles and you are good. I for one am here to learn this 3D Printing Innovation. If I make a mistake, then someone will...

Re: I think I fried my Rostock V2

I would start by checking the Power Supply voltage, no power supply voltage check wall outlet. Then see it the voltage make it to the controller. Never trust looking to see if a fuses looks good, always measure fuse with a continuity tester, and Power with a multi-meter. Worse case scenario would be...
