printer restarts right as print begins

I have a small delta 180mm. I have had it up and running for almost 3 years. it prints not bad at all. lately I have noticed that things were starting to loosen up and get slightly sloppy, so I figured it was time to add a heatbed, update the firmware, and recalibrate. I am running repetier 9.29, up from 9.25. as I said t worked great for years. the problem now is after I hook all up now I notice that when I am only usb the lcd doesn't come on.  when I have it all started up plugged in usb and psu, repetier host connects I can home, heat both extruders (e3d chimera), and the heatbed. everything moves around and it is now after a very long two days of free time calibrated to my liking.  so I set up to print a few backup parts. I slice (cura) and heat up one extruder and the bed for pla (I don't need it but its new why not)  as soon as temps are right I hit start and the nozzle drops to the bed, I'm all excited and it stops and everything restarts. &)#(&%)#)   so I move it around a little re arrange the parts reslice   reheat and same happens   I save to sd card and try to print from there  still with usb plugged in  same happens I'm stumped.  and I really was looking forward to getting a few things printed,  any suggestions.  ps I copied most settings straight from old firmware only changed z height and had to adjust printer radius for flatness during calibration otherwise its all the same. only happens the second a print begins right as it starts extruding.

  • to edit above the lcd only comes on when the usb cable is plugged into the pc.  running straight from a meanwell 12v 30a power supply it doesn't light up. so this printer I guess is not stand alone which is fine because its able to be plugged into a pc whenever it is used but just to change the info for more accuracy I thought I would correct myself. also I just unplugged the two heatbed cables and tried to print again without a heatbed and it runs fine. so please what is the issue. what do I need to do to make this work correctly.
  • I put a fan on my ramps to see if that helped heatbed still unplugged (only thermistor is hooked up so I don't get error)  this is sample of what happens when I try to print this it gets about 5 seconds in then locks up and in host the lines get drawn super fast and this shows up on the bottom I have sliced this and printed it before the firmware upgrade and I know it prints I have 5 of them made.
    these cords are in the 1000's what the hell    how do I post my firmware to here so someone can check it out

    Not sure I could sort out the description.

    Display requires 5V whcih can come from usb or main power over 5V regulator on Arduino. Later does not seem to work.

    The error messages come from moves to illegal positions. Divide x/y by steps per mm to get real coordinates. Maybe you just defined print radius too small.

    Part of your description sound like your board resets when starting print, is that correct? See log for the message "start" and restart reason. Might be related to the bed so maybe try a print without bed enables like before the changes.
  • Yes it seems my arduino regulator is not functioning. But that's ok I can live with that. I actually had to raise the print radius by 2 to get the nozzle to touch the middle of the bed. Last night I reverted back to the old firmware version (92.5) . I put the numbers from my calibration (92.9) in and it was for whatever reason with exact same numbers 2.4 mm above the bed all over so I recalibrate with that firmware and when I was satisfied enough I tried to print. All was going well the extruder and heather heat up to temp and I push start. With the old firmware I did have to lower print radius by 3 point something to get it flat. Anyways when it started printing it didn't stop but it didn't follow cura path it did correct shape but very random lines and then was extruding random and also retracting random. Nothing like what was on the screen in host (except strangely the outline of what I was printing). I think my printer is possessed this week at times I turn it on and one motor goes opposite direction I have to unplug everything and wait a few seconds for the power supply to completely drain then restart to make it to the right way again. But I can say that it's weird that two version same firmware with identical as far as I can tell settings act very much different
    One prints one doesn't neither will complete a print as of right now and it was all working great last week. I think I should have never touched anything. Sorry for the books. How do I check the log. And how can I post my firmware

    Delta math hasn't changed so different results are unexpected. Print radius is not used for computation at all, it just defines allowed cylinder of coordinates.Somewhere we introduced bed coating so set it 0 to make it a no effect.

    In host you enable log in Preferences->General and after a restart it writes it to file.

    You can use pastebin for posting files, but do not expect me to check firmware files. I would not see the problem from it and I can not run it on my delta. I can only give some hints.

    here is my log this is back to the newest version of firmware public release 92.9  host goes crazy fast drawing lines when the printer restarts. and it actually only prints 2 real lines.  again I have printed this file five times already   ps it doesn't matter if heatbed is connected or not and it I make print radius bigger the printer doesn't even move when I push start  I changed it from the radius to the diameter when I tried.   this file is from heatbed on and print radius at 110 because I have a hex shaped mirror I print on and that is the radius of the circle it would create the object I am printing is not really that large its 2 halves of a part and If separated I could mover them around to get 3 total parts or 6 halves at once.


    I am getting ready to give up on this thing and that's a shame because I really really enjoy using it

    Log shows you are moving outside possible coordinates. So check eeprom and see what diagonal/horizontal radius and print radius are set to and if angles are 90/210/330. Either you are really printing on invalid coordinates or the configuration of delta geometry is way off.

    Hi, As I understand from the above explanations and using reprap 1.4 with ardunio, the card restarts itself because the endstops are faulty or shorted and the digital pins get into the output instead. Is not checked my cards right endstop changes? Check that the amps of the stepper drivers are correct. I think the problem is hardware.
