Topic: IM stuck and not sure how to fix.

i been working on restoring this solidoodle 3 for a while now, its software i think thats stopping me from printing now.
i have MKS base V1.4 and e3d v5 . i have it to where the steppers on the X/Y/Z are all good. reading temp on extruder fine. but wont heat up extruder at all. reading zero temp on the bed with no heat up. the home location works but in small steps like you have to hit it a bunch of times to eventually get there. i have the smart controller i selvages off a printer
can anyone point me in a more productive direction. been at this for days.

Re: IM stuck and not sure how to fix.

Sounds like you have a short on the bed and possibly a broken/shorting connection for your hotend heater. Depending on the board and how it was flashed, like a poorly flashed Pritnrboard (common), it could behave like a mechanical issue over time without correcting.

The v5 was very much prone to shorts if the kapton was not properly wrapped, so trace your wires before running down the dusty firmware road. If you eventually find the firmware may be the culprit, check your controller settings. Do you get the same problem when connecting to a computer?

Re: IM stuck and not sure how to fix.

Troublshoot one problem at a time.


Hook up the computer and use your manual controls to troubleshoot.

reading zero temp on the bed with no heat up

sounds like a thermisistor connection issue.

reading temp on extruder fine. but wont heat up extruder at all.

Could be power issue on heater could be logic. if the bed is supposed to heat first and the program is waiting for it to heat before the extrder heats could be coned to no 1

location works but in small steps like you have to hit it a bunch of times to eventually get there. i have the

check end stop wiring and logic.

Re: IM stuck and not sure how to fix.

thanks for the advice.
the board came from my delta after smoothie upgrade and touchscreen display, the hot end Assembly is all new left over parts from my second delta. so the board is good, hotend is good, not to worried about the heated bed just yet. but i do have a second solidoodle3 that is 98%stock, just trying to get one or both working because the parts im printing are wider than my working delta.. its cnc mayhem in my living room

Re: IM stuck and not sure how to fix.

If your reading zero on your bed I'd guess your getting a reported error.  The firmware will prevent proper function until the problem is corrected.  The bed heater thermistor or wiring is causing the error.  Focus your efforts there first.

Re: IM stuck and not sure how to fix.

Can the heated bed be commented out to switch it off in the program to test? Still learning marlin sorry for the dumb question

Re: IM stuck and not sure how to fix.

Do you have a multi meter are you using it to troubleshoot ?
look at the connectors  the inserts sometimes slip in and do not connect with the pins.
You sad the board came from a delta did you reload with marlin configured with the Cartesian settings?

multi meter is doing double time on this project. connections have all been gone over at least 10 times and as for movement it is configured as cartesian as i have all axis working,

can some one have a look over the files.
marlin is new to me so im not to sure whats needed to cover all the bases.

Re: IM stuck and not sure how to fix.

You could just use the Marlin version listed in the WIKI it's already configured for an SD.  Just select the correct board number and thermistor table 5 for the E3d.  Set max temp to 29O and your good to go.  But a bed temp reading of zero tells me something is wrong with that thermistor connection.

Re: IM stuck and not sure how to fix.

Follow the traces on the board from the E0 terminal screw block. Check each component (namely the MOSFET) in the path from the processor's pin to the terminal. If everything is good there, there's a chance the actual processor pin is bad (check every other possible problem first though!)

I had an mpx.3 (modified clone of MKS BASE) that lost E1 functionality when the pin for it stopped working. I swapped the MOSFETS, reflashed the firmware, changed cartridges, etc. Now the board waits to be used in my next single extruder build.

Re: IM stuck and not sure how to fix.

thank you i will try that as the thing still dosnt f-cking work.
frustrating part is it came out of a fully working printer, run like a champ. just upgraded to smoothie.

Re: IM stuck and not sure how to fix.

Check the controller settings to find options to fix this problem.
