@krohm-koala - Thank you for your reply. I was just trying to point out that you should value your own time, even a day developing your own and you are basically valuing your time at very little per hour after material costs. Thats why we made them available for others. Take care.
Well, I took the plunge and updated to firmware 3.1.1
A few things were a royal pain, things that I'd tuned that needed finding and re-entering. Like extruder steps that were entirely wrong. There didn't seem to be a spot in the configurator for using 2 motor drives for the Z axis, Pressure advance needed tuning, and it scared the crap outta me when it said that the heat bed was faulting. (PID tuning needed to happen again.) All that stuff I figured out 2 years ago and have since forgotten.
I just picked up a few of these fysetc panels (LCD800480 V1.1). The important thing to look at is that yes its more like a paneldue 7i in form factor, but the back of the pcb says it is based on the paneldue v3 not the 7i. So once I flashed the board with PanelDue-v3-7.0.bin files everything was as expected now.
Thanks for confirmation of the correct firmware version. Although I had tried that firmware first with no success. However I didn’t pay attention to the file size so I decided to redownload the firmware and made sure the file size was accurate. I then proceeded to reinstalled the firmware, and unfortunately the issue persist. I will reach out to E3D whom my wife purchased it from as my xmas gift.
I should also note that I filed a warranty claim just in case as I could not get it working. I tried powering the board off the duet as well as connected to 3 different computers, with and without the data lines in between the Duet and screen and still no luck. Rolland has said he will send me out a new one, which is amazing service.
@toddel Not really. Every machine is different. If it's a machine that was originally a marlin based printer you may be able to get the default values from the old firmware. Or if it's a common design you might find suggestions from other users of the same machine. Alternatively you could ask for suggestions in the forum by describing your machine and someone can suggest a good starting point and then you'll have to do some testing and tuning on your own. General rule of thumb is to start low and work your way up.
