Hi, I have a problem with the I3 Mega, the problem is quite peculiar because the X-axis is not working completely. The failure occurs in such a way that the stepper motor does not want to go to the left side (towards the limit switch). After any attempt to start the engines, a buzzer begins to beep regularly.
As I give the HOME mode, the carriage X moves a few mm to the right, and then Y and finally Z are turned on. If I move the carriage to the right with a command from the printer, I can go back to the left, but only by the amount I moved.
At first I thought it was the limit switch's fault, but unfortunately it works properly. I checked the voltage on it and it is only 2.3V, when the Y axis end switch is about 5V. I checked the voltage at the board, also 2.3V, the question is whether this switch should have the 5V, if so, what causes such a voltage drop?
I connected the printer to the Repeater, turned on the M119 option to check if the limit switches were working properly and yes, they were all working properly.
I already lost ideas what could be the cause?
I would like to add that the printer was unused almost six months ago, I had a problem with the Hotend fan but it was my fault because I had shorted wires in the new fan and I burned one transistor that I replaced and everything works.
I am adding a video with this anomaly, it will surely clarify what I mean.
Anycubic told me to buy a new mainboard, they won't help me to fix it.
Currently I am using the latest version of Cura for my slicer but is that the best one to use? I have heard good things about Prusa but never used it. Can anyone give their input and insight into the different slicer and if it is worthwhile to change? Thanks.
My mega sees that an sd card is inserted, but doesnt see any files on the card.
having only 1 file on
changing to a different card
Re seating sd card cable
and I get nothing. It was working earlier today, but it just quit seeing files. Any ideas or thing to check?
