Anycubic I3 Mega No longer reading code?


Recommended Posts

Posted · Anycubic I3 Mega No longer reading code?

Same printer printed the same exact print a couple months ago from the same card. Nothing has changed. I can manually heat the bed and nozzle through the touch-screen, I can make it feed the material, and it successfully goes to home. But once I tell it to start a print, it will show the specified bed heat and start heating, but the requested nozzle heat stays at 0 even though 245 is written into the file via Cura. I tried several times, reformatting the SD, re-slicing the files in Cura and putting them on the card and everything results in the same thing. One time I let it sit for 15 mins or so and then I heard the motors move briefly so I thought it was going to start but it just moved a tiny bit and then the screen said that the project was 242% completed which is odd. I also tried printing via USB with the same results of heating the bed but not even requesting a nozzle temp so it would not heat. Anyone have a stab at what this could be? I'm ready to throw this Anycubic in a dumpster. I have wasted stupid amounts of time trouble shooting this thing.
