Power Cord Disconnects during print

Recommended Posts

It should lock on so that for example you can pick the printer up and swing it around by the power chord. Not recommended but it should be that strong of a connection.

Probably it's rubbing against the wall of the printer.

Remove the connector and notice that the end of the connector slides backwards. It needs to slide back forwards to be locked in. Try jiggling things around pushing left/right/up/down and twisting slightly as you shove it in there until it clicks and locks in.

In some cases the controller board can slide back a bit which makes it harder to get the connector to click into place like gr5 is describing. If that's the case you need to remove the cover on the bottom, the left cover on the inside of the machine that hides the stepper motors, loosen the four screws that hold the controller board in place, shove it back into place and then re-tighten.

    • Architect Design Contest | People
      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
