Getting Started - Temperature Error
« on: December 01, 2012, 04:15:17 AM »
Just getting started; How can I get past this error at start-up:
"Printer Stopped due to errors.  Fix the error and use M999 to restart!. (Temperature is reset.  Set it before restarting.)"
I told it to heat the extruder, but there is no voltage at the terminals.
Thanks!
Sean.

This error is usually preceded by a line that looks like this:
< 2:41:10 PM: : Extruder switched off. MINTEMP triggered !

Is that what you're seeing?

Mintemp is designed to shut the machine off if the thermistor becomes disconnected to keep it from heating out of control. Once mintemp is triggered, you will not be able to heat the nozzle because it is not safe to power the heater when the thermistor is not functioning properly.

To fix this error, you need to make sure that your thermistor is connected properly. On the X1, the extruder thermistor connection is labeled E-TRM. On the X3, the T0 thermistor connection is labeled E0 and the T1 thermistor connector is labeled E2, and both will need to be connected for a Duo to avoid this error.

Thanks very much.  That was the problem.  I had not completed connecting everything for the second extruder.  Once I did, it started without the error.  Sean.

Having the same error on a single-extruder w/ X3 board.

I checked/remade the thermistor connections at the extruder platform and the E0 connector, but still get the mintemp triggered error :/

Still trying to find a solution. Any suggestions?

I'm really going to have to start individually making those boards when I program them, several boards programmed for a Duo have gotten out in X3 Vanilla kits, and they panic when they don't see the thermistor for the second extruder. You'll have to re-flash the board with the X3 single-extruder firmware available here: http://bukobot.com/bukobot-marlin-configuration

To do this, you'll need the Arduino IDE, available here: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software

Thanks so much, Rich! Sounds very likely that might be the issue, indeed.

I'll re-install the firmware when I get home and post the successes.  :D
