Duet 3 6HC micro SD socket damaged, need to send for repair



  • Hello, I would like to send my Duet 3 6HC in for a new micro SD card slot, I tried to install a remote card reader before I read the part about not doing that because some card readers can damage the slot and did just that... now the card reader will not see the card, the card does not lock into place and I would like to send it in for repair. Please help



  • If you can't find a local mobile repair shop that can help you or you happen to be near one of the people listed here then wait to see what the Duet people say.

    The recommended part is on the spare part list

    Which country are you in?



  • so I finally got my new Duet 3 6HC installed and I have my fresh firmware SD card in the slot. before I had all these problems with the micor SD card reader i made the mistake of pushing the reset button on my Pannel Due 7 and now all it does is come up with a back lite where as before the normal operations screen would come up... how do i get a new firm ware installed on the panel due?





  • Thanks .. that solved the problem..



  • I amble to move my axis, with the panel Due, how can I tell if the limit switches are working on the duet 3 and how do I get the IP address to show on the panel Due?


  • Moderator

    You can test the endstop switches by sending M119 to see their status. Send it again when the switch is depressed to verify it's registered.

    To see the assigned IP address send M552.



  • what string of code needs to be in the config file or how do I make the UI screen display the current IP address?

    @supertb1 see my reply above



  • yes I seen it thanks...lol... I appreciate your advise ... I also like the idea of making a Macro. I have a couple of other questions... on my Duet 3 board the reset button light flashes steadily and the panel Due 7 has connecting displayed on the top right hand corner... is this normal? also is there a advised source to learn how to program the UI so that I can can get things like the IP address and the limit switch inputs to display on the UI?

    Which UI do you mean? On the PanelDue or the web interface?

    You can create macros in the web interface and they would be accessible from the PanelDue or the web interface as well.

    Most gcode commands can be sent without any parameters and it will echo back the current values.

    Your PanelDue being stuck on connecting probably means that you're missing a command in config.g to enable it. You must have M575 P1 B57600 S1 for the PanelDue to work.

    Here are some example macros: https://github.com/Duet3D/RRF-machine-config-files/tree/master/DBotCoreXY/x0r-wifi-RRF3/macros



  • When I say user interface I guess I am trying to convey the PanelDue... I would like to have all of the sensors display current statuses , again thank you very much for the advice.



  • Could I have some one look at these G-codes in my config.g please
    I am trying to set up for 2 Z motors, using Nema 23 motors and 3 pin limit switches. I am a bit of a noob so any advice would be helpfull.

    This isn't quite right. You'd need

    Instead of having 2 Z entries, you'd have M584 Z0.0:0.1 The driver numbers separated by a colon.

    M208 X609 Y609 Z762 Z762 S0 ; set axis maxima

    And for all of these commands you'd only need a single entry for Z since it's per axis, and not per driver. So remove the duplicate Z values. It's only for multiple extruders that you need to specify the values for each extruder.

    The PanelDue is fairly limited in what it can display and how. You'd need to modify the firmware itself to do anything custom. https://github.com/Duet3D/PanelDueFirmware

    What firmware version are you using on the Duet and on the PanelDue?



  • @supertb1 said in Duet 3 6HC micro SD socket damaged, need to send for repair:
    Duet 3 (firmware version 3)
    PanelDue-5.0i-7.0i.bin that I just installed from "https://github.com/Duet3D/PanelDueFirmware/releases/tag/1.24"
    ok, thank you for helping me get that straight, next question, my homeall.g

    What changes need to be made to my home all and home Z files so that both Z motors move to the limit switches and stop, then zero, and then back up 5mm?

    That's basically exactly what it's already doing.

    G1 H1 Z-767 F360 ; move Z down stopping at the endstop
    G90 ; absolute positioning
    G92 Z0 ; set Z position to axis minimum (you may want to adjust this)
    ; Uncomment the following lines to lift Z after probing
    ;G91 ; relative positioning
    ;G1 Z5 F100 ; lift Z relative to current position
    ;G90 ; absolute positioning

    Remove the semicolon ; from those three G code lines to back up 5mm after the endstop is hit.



  • Got it thanks so much.... can't wait to give this a try in the morning



  • ok, so I put the SD card in the slot on the Duet 3 today, the reset light on the board is still flashing and the PanelDue still sais Connecting, and now it will not let me move any of the axis through the PanelDue and when I type in the M552 command on the PanelDue it doesn't respond or return any information, I followed the 4 wire pin out instructions and put the PanelDue on I/O-0. I double checked the wiring, and the comment "M575 P1 B57600 S1" is present. Is there anything else I need to do to make this work?



  • I did some wiggle testing and found that the wiring from the duet 3 to the paneldue is flakey..... going to make a new cable and pay closer attention to the terminations... I always solder the wire ends before I crimp the terminal on the end... do you guys solder the terminal on to the wire as well?


  • Moderator

    A good crimp should be on bare wire. If you solder first the crimp won't work properly.



  • What gauge wire do you normally use with the crimps on the fans, sensors and steppers..?. I'm using nema 23 and 17 motors... I had been using 22 gauge wire


  • Moderator

    22 is likely just fine for those things.



  • it is likely that I do not have a good crimper for this task... what is the recommended crimper for this task?... my current problem is that when I crimp down on the terminal it cuts the wire end off and when I tine the wire ends before I crimp it solves this problem.
