CR 10 S4 y-axis locks up, bed does not move smoothly

by johnszar
  • Stock CR-10 S4, a little over a year old, well used
  • When I got the machine, the bed moved smoothly by hand with a little resistance
  • A month ago, it suddenly it became harder to move the bed
  • Takes 2 hands to move, not smooth anymore, almost jerky once it starts moving, but it still printed fine
  • Now the y-axis will lock up during a print, X and Z continue to work. You don't want to see the picures
  • Restarting the machine restores the y-axis and the machine homes correctly
  • With the machine shutdown, still hard to move the bed
  • Removed the y-axis cable, still hard to move
  • Removed the y-axis belt, bed moves sooth as silk, does not appear to be any flat or over tightened rollers
  • Removed the y-axis stepper,
    • It is not difficult to rotate, it spins like a stepper should, with a stepped rotation
    • But randomly you feel a snap/click, once or twice during a full rotation, never in the same spot
  • Am I correct in assuming this is a failed y-axis stepper?

CR-10S PRO Replacement Motherboard

by cchrisawn

After replacing just about everything on my CR-10S PRO except the motherboard, I went ahead and bit the bullet and purchased a new board. Due to COVID and stocking issues, I was just now able to install it.....and nothing. The fans come on, but the LCD screen is blank and Cura doesn't recognize that there is a printer attached. I'm pretty sure it was supposed to come with Creality stock firmware, is it possible that I have a bad replacement?

ERR: Mintemp on CR10s, E3D V6

by ren9216

Hello again!!

So, a week ago I started having problems when printing with TPU. After and hour of so of printing, "temp runout" error showed up on the screen. After that I checked for the all hotend (e3d V6) connections, like thermistor, tightening heatsink to the nozzle and all that. Nothing was loose. The problem was still there.
After some more research I tried replacing the thermistor (original that came with CR10s). Now the error that came up was MINTEMP. It didn't even read the room temp. Heatbed works fine.
I checked the board, nothing looks loose or damaged.

Do you have any ideas what this might be? Thanks in advance for your input!!

cr10s help mintemp please temp_runout
