12864 display shows heater fault on startup
Matej101 last edited by Matej101
For a few weeks now, I have been having issues with my display setup. The hotend heater shows a fault on startup (my menu was configured to show heater faults), and once the fault clears, the display doesn't reset and the place where a fault symbol was displayed remains blank. I can't connect to the board fast enough to chatch the fault in DWC, so I am wandering if this is a software or hardware error. This has only been happening relatively recently (with no changes to my menu system), specifically after I did a firmware update and changed an extruder sock. Would shorting 12V to thermistor cause such an issue?
My menu system: https://github.com/Sidic101/Duet-Maestro-12864-Menu-Files
What firmware version?
Can you post your config.g?
On the off chance there is a warning coming from your config.g you can send M98 Pconfig.g to re-execute config,g and you'll be able to see any error messages that wouldn't otherwise be visable during startup.
the command just warns me about overpowered heaters, it does not reproduce the issue
latest RRF(3.01 RC7) and DWC(2.1.2)

It almost looks like the printer starts with the fault condition on boot and has to clear it later
and once the fault clears, the display doesn't reset
Are you saying that the fault clears itself, without you having to send M562 to reset it? If so then I think the heater fault indication is spurious, because heater faults don't clear themselves.
PS - is it a bed heater fault or a hot end heater fault that is reported?
I can see a possible problem with the code if the display code starts running before tool 0 has been created. I will fix that in the 3.01 release or the next 3.01 RC if there is one. Meanwhile, try moving the M918 command to be after the M563 command.
Thanks, that fixed it!
It was the hotend heater, the display showed a fault on boot but it cleared itself almost instantly. Also it only did this after a complete power on, not after doing a board reset.
Thanks for confirming this. I've put the fix in the RRF3 source code already.
This is now fixed in the 3.01 source code and in the firmware binaries at https://www.dropbox.com/sh/3azy1njy3ayjsbp/AACquxr2m00eV568RZg5QG5wa?dl=0.
