Homing failed, heating failed. Delta HC-250



  • We bought duet 3d board online from build3dprinter.eu. We received board on 2nd April, 2018 for our printer DELTA HC-250. we updated firmware to 1.21. now, We are facing the following problems. We read all the documentation & many forums regarding to this problem but nothing work.

    1. The Printer homing command fails to execute. We are getting homing fail error.The motor dont move at all.
    2. While heating the heated bed after 30 temp. rise we get error message heating failed the temp. rise is lower than 1.20/sec.
    3. also suggest us how to configure the probe.

    Your images are showing "3rd party hosting has been temporarily disabled" so I am not able to see them however:

    1. Please test the motors individually as described at https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/ConfiguringRepRapFirmwareDeltaPrinter#Section_Testing_the_motors_individually. If the motors don't move:

    • Send M906 to check that the motor currents are as you set them (XYZ all 1000mA). if they are all zero then config.g was not read from the SD card at startup.
    • Check that the blue LED on the Duet is illuminated, indicating that you have VIN power to the Duet.

    2. Heater temperature rise not as expected: tune the bed heater using M303. See https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Spurious_heater_faults_and_how_to_avoid_them.

    3. See https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Connecting_a_Z_probe and https://duet3d.dozuki.com/Wiki/Calibrating_a_delta_printer. What type of Z probe do you have?



  • I hope you can see the images



  • The images were clicked by our phone and computer I don't know why it shows this message


  • administrators

    No, I still can't see the images. This is a common problem with photobucket, I think you need to have a paid-for account for other people to see them.

    PS - if you want to use Dropbox to host your images, replace ?dl=0 at the end of the Dropbox URL by ?raw=1.



  • Is it possible to send you the image through email


  • administrators

    Please host them on imgur or dropbox. See https://www.csoonline.com/article/3205765/internet/photobucket-replaced-millions-of-images-with-ransom-demand.html for more about the photobucket issue.



  • Thanks for the advice will do it.


  • administrators

    Also please post your homedelta.g file here as text, as you did with your config.g file.




  • administrators

    Thanks, I can see those images.

    1. Homing failed: I still need to see the contents of your homedelta.g file.

    2. Heating fault (temperature rising too slowly): see my reply yesterday, https://www.duet3d.com/forum/thread.php?pid=44742#p44742.



  • homing problem is solved the homing file had everything commented
    Thanks



  • The z probe always shows at min stop. The threshold value is shows 1000 and when triggered it shows 165 how to reverse this one ?


  • administrators

    @JGR:

    The z probe always shows at min stop. The threshold value is shows 1000 and when triggered it shows 165 how to reverse this one ?

    Add parameter I1 in your M558 command. That's letter-i followed by digit-1. Better still, use the NC conrtacts of your switch instead of the NO contacts, which is safer if the switch becomes disconnected.



  • yes it solved the problem. Is it ok if we use 31865 board for PT 100 sensor with a reference resistance of 430ohms. I have read the instructions where it says use 400ohms Ref resister. we also have a Resister 391 ohms but have to replace that one on the board. we have also order the daughter board but it will take 2-3 week to reach our office. Is it possible to use 31865 board as we currently have in stock.


  • administrators

    To use a PT100 board with a 430 ohm reference resistor, use parameter R430 in the M305 command that configures the heater to use that PT100 channel.

  • All the heaters are fluctuating more or less 5C even after auto tuning. The Chamber behaves a little wired sometime it gives the temperature rise error and some time it doesn't. please guide us through right procedure.

    Also during bed levelling, While clicking at the UI Autobedlevel button it will take all the points correctly , but if we give the g32 command the head will move outside the bed size to take the points.
