Printer gets stuck...Configuration problem? Overheating?

Posted · Printer gets stuck...Configuration problem? Overheating?

 

I broke my card reader so i'm using my usb cable to connect to the printer. I didn't have this problem when i was still using the SD card:

 

Somehow the printer head just stops moving in the middle of printing.

 

According to the report my device is not configured?

 

OSError: '[Errno 6] Device not configured' @ machineCom.pyo:_readline:483

 

I have updated cura and firmware but when i run checks on first run wizard the communication works but it doesn't read the temperature.

 

I wasn't getting any max temperature reports but could i have overheated the motors? I did use my printer a lot these past days.

 

 

What can i do?

    Try:

    1) printing with a different computer

    2) Buy a very inexpensive USB hub (to amplify the signal)

    3) Turning off all screen saver features and all power saver features in your operating system.

    4) Using a laptop (which has a more stable power supply)

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
