[Solved] New Printer will not get beyond guided setup screen.  

New Member

Hi all. I just unboxed my new printer. I updated firmware and drivers as per the start guide. I removed all zip ties and foam as well. When I turn on the printer, select my language, and am directed to the Y/N question of being taken through a guided setup, I run into issues. If I select Yes, or No, the fans start to spin for a few seconds, but then cut off and the screen returns to the Y/N selection. Any assistance would be appreciated.

You aren’t pushing the X button are you to answer the question ?  That’s the printer reset button, the enter button is to push the encoder down.

I am extremely embarrassed that is exactly what I was doing. It wasn't readily apparent that the dial is actually also a button. Thank you for  the response.

You weren't the first, and you won't be the last... 😉

Ditto -- I fought that design flaw for quite a while myself.

It is always wise to get more than one opinion... as for trusting Prusa? No way man....
