Panel due suspended mode?



  • Hi,

    there is some form of config Panel Due that after a while, the screen goes off? I can not find that configuration, if it exits … If it does not exist through the menus ... can the screen be turned off after a while by console, with a gcode...?

    In long prints, 12 hours or more, I do not know that the screen is always on, only the times I check the print status ..., most of the time, I'm not in front of the printer ....

    Thank you



  • Use the newest paneldue version (1.20). It will dim the display after 60 seconds of not being touched. It can be configured on the setup page to always dim like that, never dim, or only dim when the printer is "idle."



  • Thanks

  • Dimming is nice, but would it also be possible to integrate a "total off"- mode after for example 30 Minutes? Thinking about a print that lasts for a couple of hours, the display doesn't has to stay on all time?



  • A simple switch to cut the 5 volt power to the board can be used to turn it on and off.

    If your normal "brightness" is low enough, the dimmed value will actually have the backlight as close of "off" as is possible while still powering it. I don't think it would be feasible to completely turn off the LCD without also powering down the entire PanelDue. (..and if only the LCD power was cut, I think it would also cut power to the electronics providing touch sensitivity, so you'd have no way to turn the LCD back on without rebooting the paneldue.)
