so whenever i need to print something i always have to manual enter the print temp by going into tune the temperature and turning it to 210 which is what i print pla at. the printer remembers all other settings like plate temp etc. but it wont remember the hot end temp. i always have to start the print then go in and increase it to my desired temperature. please help?

    Are you sure?

    When you first start a print, the 'Tune' menu is going to show the nozzle temp as 0, while it heats up the bed. Only when the bed is mostly heated does it turn on the nozzle heater. This is to avoid leaving the head sitting hot for a long time and cooking the filament inside.
