Duex5 not working...?



  • I've got a duex5 connected. It was working at one point. I was setting up a filament runout sensor. I got it working on the Duet E0 E1 stops. All was good until I went to home the printer. If I do an M115, it returns this: FIRMWARE_NAME: RepRapFirmware for Duet WiFi FIRMWARE_VERSION: 1.20 ELECTRONICS: Duet WiFi 1.0 FIRMWARE_DATE: 2017-12-23
    so I know it's not seeing it. if I touch the Vin/Gnd to my volt meter, I can get a good strong reading at 24v. I'm not sure why all of a sudden my z steppers are no longer working. The only one that is, is the one connected to Za
    below is my config minus my network section, also commented out the filament sensors. Please someone out there help me out.. I'm starting to get so burnt out over this printer.. It's like it's one thing after another....

    Check that nothing is shorting against the 10-pin expansion header on the DueX5. Then power cycle the printer, and check the M115 response again. If it never detects the DueX5 then the possibilities are:

    • Faulty DueX5
    • Faulty ribbon cable
    • Faulty Duet (unlikely)

    In these cases I recommend asking for the DueX5 and ribbon cable to be replaced under warranty.
