Installed the new firmware and now my printer axis crashes and keeps trying to recalibrate.

I bought the prebuilt printer a couple of months ago, and it's been printing flawlessly until now. I've rebooted, reapplied the start wizard calibration tool. Went thru all the test. Sometimes I get a Z calibration error, sometimes I get the X axis error. I ran the leveling job. I had it go thru the whole process and I can get it to return to ALL Ok. As soon as run a print job it crashes at the home calibration and goes thru the 9 calibration points. Keeps looping thru the same process until it asks if I want to continue?

How do I proceed?

Thanks!

Reverted back to 3.8.1 and everything is working again. Something is wrong with 3.9.0

this is an off topic thought...   

have you tried 7x7 mesh bed levelling?  I find it better than 3x3 MBL,       7x7 MBL tests 49 points on the build plate quickly, and does a better job, in my opinion...   you turn it on using the LCD menu...

Same here. I just updated FW and started a new print. It's crashing every few layers, then it re-homes and resumes printing. I can't see anything that would cause it to crash and I'm not sure which axis is crashing, however, it's re-homed a dozen times on the current print.

 

EDIT:  Recv: echo:enqueing "CRASH_DETECTEDY".   Y-axis crashing every layer or 2.

Although mine is a modified 0.9 deg stepper motor Mk3, I too had issues with calibration and had to slightly tighten my X belt, even though it has been printing flawlessly before this, so maybe see if you can carry out some belt tests and see what values you get and post back here, it may be that the belts have stretched a little since you bought the printer and the firmware TMC drivers have been tweaked which is now showing up slight looseness.

Normal people believe that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain’t broke, it doesn’t have enough features yet....
