Heated bed connector failing.

by 247generator

I've already had the main power connector on the circuit board melt and fail, which is now soldered... but now the heated bed connector is beginning to fail and kill prints!

Seems like the connection pins are getting corrosion or arcing from movement... I liked the convenience of the clip on hot bed connector but I guess the proper way to connect it is with solder, like the Anycubic is... but what to do now?

Did I just get a lemon or are all the big bed dual head units going to fail? I'm thinking I should do some sort of cc ext warranty claim since it's failing so badly, and so quickly... I knew it had some design flaws like acrylic parts when I bought it, but I wasn't expecting such a terribly designed and regularly failing printer. I don't really want their replacement parts of the same low quality, I think I'm better off getting a refund and a totally different printer. The main reason I got it was for the stock dual extrusion but it's not even capable without serious modification, so I might as well get a better printer and add a second extruder or other multi material gadget since that would result in more reliable printing in general.

Z wobble!!

by shearder

Hi guys

So i have Z wobble as probably most have!! I have tried a number of things including the gimbal and oldham coupler and different Z brackets etc. I still have Z wobble. I have gone back to "normal" build. Though my Z wobble is slight it is still there.

Any other tried and proven suggestions?

Thanks.

Anyone Have a Slightly Defective MKS-Base Board to Get Rid Of?

by rebeltaz

I have been trying to diagnose a 3DTouch issue and I have been unable to figure out the issue. I'd rather not keep reprogramming a working printer trying to get this working. If I had a spare board, I could try different things outside the printer until I found the trouble. I know I can get an MKS-Base board for $30 or so on Amazon/eBay, but I don't really want to buy a board just for this one purpose. I've seen people on here talk about having burned out the X/Y/Z/E drivers on their boards. I thought I'd see if anyone had one with such burned out ports that they'd like to get rid of. As long as I can flash and run Marlin and as long as the z-end stop ports and the servo ports work, that is all I care about.
