HELLO BEE PRUSA DIED

Post by HALFORD » 26 Mar 2020, 20:42

HI ALL, been printing some parts recently and noticed the occasional odd sounds from axis moves and also lots of missed steps in Y axis.
today started a print at reduced feed @70% less for ALL moves.
Made sure the first 2-3 layers looked good then left it to it.
came back to check every few mins then came back later to find the spaghetti in the Y axis.
the X axis has failed to move and stopped the printer and ALL movement ceased. also powered itself off for some reason.
Seems now the X axis will not move at all.
i think the driver is overloaded and died, no evidence of burning or overheating anywhere.
Replaced the driver with the Y axis one and still no response.
Can anyone help please? :(

Hey,

My printer also died last week. It was the power supply.
Maybe your motor? Can you test another one?
