Problem reading bed temperature

by tomastnt_cz

Hello everyone,
I have problem reading temperature of my bed thermistor. It displays 133deg celsius and doesnt change.
I run Marlin firmware (1.1) on MKS base v1.4 board. Everything worked fine, until the bed connector broke (fell off). So I soldered the connector properly and connected back board. But the temperature readings stays in 135deg of cel.
I tryed to switch thermistors (bed->hot end) A13-A14 and found out, that there is problem with A14 port. Bed thermistor connected in A13 port reads tem perfectly. Hot end thermistor connected in port A14 does the same thing ... it reads 135deg of cels. So I thing that A14 port isnt working properly. I reloaded firmware, but nothing changed.
Solution? I would like to edit firmware to set port A15 for reading the bed temperature, but I cannot find it anywhere. I use Merlin firmware from JimBrown (EasyConfig 1.1.x)
Any advise?

PTFE pulled into extruder gears

by alonmln

have a tevo tarantula, the problem is that PTFE is getting pulled back to the extruder gears and stopping filiment extrusion, do you know how to solve this?

One hypothesis I have is that there is a cooling problem in the hot end while a retraction is made, causing the extruder motor to pull the PTFE in it.

Suggestions appricieted!

Marlin Easy config Auto Bed Leveling not working correctly. Help

by RamJam

Hi guys,

I cannot get the auto bed level on my Tevo Tarantula to work correctly and after a few days of trying to sort it I just cant work it out.
I've set the outsets for my 3d Touch probe, it homes all axis (x,y,z) correctly when sending a G28 to the printer from Cura. However when I send a G29 after for the autobed leveling to start, the probe extending and the z axis starts to move down but stops and retract the probe before it ever touches the bed like it does successfully with a auto home.

Am I missing something in configuration h?

Any thoughts?

Cheers
