DuetWifi not booting anymore



  • I searched the forums for similar issues but could not find anything.

    It started to loose wifi connection every 10 seconds, then nothing....

    I have checked all wires, made sure no dust was on the board and on the Duex5.
    Only a solid red and solid blue leds are on when plugged in, no flashing. The Duex5 shows no led at all.

    I have tried un powering the Duet and connecting usb cable. YAT sees nothing either.
    All fuses seem to be good.

    Is there anything else I can try? Board has been on this machine for 2 years.

    Thank you for your help.

    Does anything show in the device manager when it's connected via USB?

    You could perhaps post some photos of the board to see if there is any damaged component.



  • Device manager does not see it... I'll take them out tomorrow for close inspection of the boards.

    you most likely have to test different usb cables. some users had to try up to 18 different ones until they found one that was working



  • @Veti I am using the one provided with the Duet in the first place. are you saying it might not work?



  • just to rule it out.
    usb cables can break too.



  • Ok small update: (A positive one)

    I have unplugged all components from the board including Duex5 except power source. The board powered and the esp connected to wifi! wooohooo! I then reconnected all components one after another (Duet powered off during each plugging of course) and I was able to reconnect all components until full functionality again.

    I am suspecting some cabling malfunction at this point, that would be the only logical reason I see. The printer works again.

    Will keep you posted of further development.

    Thank you for your help
