I need help with my MK3. After updating my nozzle, heat cartridge and thermistor, My printer is dead.   I was doing calibration prints then all of a sudden my printer just stopped. The LCD screen turned off, basically a complete shut down.  It no longer powers up.   I have checked the fuses and they look good.  I checked the wiring and everything looks connected.  

Not sure what the problems is.  This is an MK3 that is barely two years old.  It has been a work horse. Did I somehow short out the main board?  Did my power supply die on me?   Do I just start ordering replacement powersupply and/or main board and start swapping parts out?

Suggestions?  

Thanks, all!

Stay safe, stay home!

The power supply is most likely defective. If you have a multimeter, you could check the voltage. The value should be approx. 24V. in this case i would consider buying a 350watt meanwell power supply.
