Printer reset every 2 minutes

Hello,

today I encountered a very strange problem.

I turned on the printer this evening and it keeps resetting every two minutes, no matter what its current action is.
It is resetting reliably every 120 seconds.

With reset I mean the behaviour, as if I was pressing the reset button on the control panel.

I have octoprint installed on a RaspiZero (prusaprint) as described in the prusa docs but have not changed it recently nor installed plugins.

Also octoprint recongnises that there was a printer reset (Alert Pop-up Message) but does not seem to cause it.

I tried all kind of obvious things already. Resetting (the button is not stuck or anything), Power off (incl. Power cable unplug), leave it a while and power on then ...)

The printer has now been working flawlessly since months. Scratching my head ....

Any ideas appreciated.

Thanks
Michael

Problem SOLVED

Short update.

I ended up disconnecting it again from power. This time I left it the power unpluged for longer - a minute or so.

After plugging it in again everything was back to normal.

Phew 😉

Sorry, problem REMAINS

Hello,

I intermediately had the same problem reoccuring every time I did not use the printer for a week or so and then turn it on.

Sometimes it was reliably 2 mins restart time. But sometimes not.

I had twice the case where I left the printer to print something overnight and it was obviously reset shortly after I left. So maybe after 15 or 20 mins.

Since no one responded so far I am getting a little desparate that I am left with an exotic problem that definetely chokes fun with the device.

All hints appreciated.

Thanks

Michael
