Good morning all,

 

I have printed yersterday and everything was ok so far. I had in the passt some issues with first layer but the last prints went good.

Some minutes a go I like to print my new created object from yesterday and now the printer do not turn on any more.

 

That means:

 

- No display (do not turn on)

- No light at back switch (do not turn on)

- Not reachable via octoprint (seems to be complete dead) 

- I check if power is comming from the wall, and yes there is no problem at all

 

What I can do next ? I buy the full assambled printer cause I don't like to do some hardware stuff. I just like to USE it.

BR,

Thomas

Connect it via usb to PC and see if it is discovered. If not maybe check fuses in the box, it opens with one screw.

Check step 37 if nothing disconnected or came loose. Check LCD ribbon cables etc

My problem was the power cord was not fully inserted into the PSU. That is a tight fit...

Check also if the cables going into PSU are also connected.

I did that, nothing is loose everything is fitting good, same for the power cable. I have the fear that PSU dided 🙁

As I said, not light showing if turn on the swtich. I think this should always work right? Hm 😐

If it were me - I would disconnect the + and - leads that go to the heated bed. See if the Einsy powers up. Looking for a short that may have crowbarred the supply.

I think you are the point of contacting Support. Click EShop above, log in, and you should have a Chat button.

They can step you through it better than we can.
