Printer restarts when starting print

Starting suddenly, no changes, got a good print yesterday, my MK3S just restarts when you select a file to print.  This happens when I am printing from Octoprint or from the SD.  Any ideas?

Usually that's a short in the bed heater.

... or ...

When a user presses RESET [X] instead of OK [knob press].

Well a factory reset fixed it

 

Edit: Or not, I was able to start the printer and do the probing, then it failed

@tim-m30

Seems to have been a firmware.  Couldn't have been the reset button since starting from Octoprint did the same thing

A broken wire in the harness can be intermittent; if the issue continues do an inspection at the bed or you can thoroughly damage things.

Might be a short in the hotend thermistor/heater. As soon as I try to head the hotend it resets the printer
