Topic: solidoodle 3 m999 error after adjusting printer settings midpoint
i have had the printer for about 3 weeks and have gone through about a spool and a half trying to get the printer calibrated and my slicer files dialed in.
i had achieved a satisfactory print yesteday on a 7x7x7 semi-solid cube, when near the end of the print i changed the printer setting to "turn off extruder head after job/kill" because the print was set to finish when i would be sleeping. after hitting apply and clicing ok i watch briefly before going to bed only to wake up in the morning with errors:
< 7:07:50 PM: Printer stopped due to errors. Fix the error and use M999 to restart. (Temperature is reset. Set it after restarting)
the job continues through repeating each error line by line.
i have uninstalled and reinstalled repetier, used the reset button on the printer. sometimes everything is fine and then the errors cascade suddenly. now the extruder head is not responding or holding temperature.
i had an issue with a power outage causing the printer to fail, which i reinstalled drivers and everything was fine.
not really sure what to do because there is not a lot online. most people say to check the thermistor but it's not a min/maxtemp issue, so i suspect the firmware. i'd like to reinstall factory settings on the motherboard but solidoodle website says not to mess with it.
thanks for your help!
