Pirx - heated bed upgrade

edited December 2018 in Extruder & Bed
I have problem with heated bed.

My printer don't have heated bed but i need heated bed i bought bed and connecting to my printer board (printrboard revF).

I send code M303 E-1 S60 C10 and heated bed start heating. But when i click on heated bed button for start heating, heated bed not working....
Bed thermistor same problem. Bed thermistor don't show temperature but bed thermistor working when i change with extruder thermistor plug...


  • Your M303 syntax is Marlin style so which firmware are you using?

    In any case check M105 response and see if it contains B: with bed temperatures. If not you need to reconfigure firmware to use a heated bed. Also make sure pins set in Configuration.h match the physical pins.

    In host you may need to add heated bed as well to see it. Depends on the host you use.

    I don't know. But i don't have firmware origin to my printer. 

    Only i know if my printer working on firmware Marlin....
    This file i got with printer.

    When i installing new Marlin, then comes 3D printers?

    My bed is here.

  • FIRMWARE_NAME:Marlin V1; Sprinter/grbl mashup for gen6 FIRMWARE_URL:https://github.com/ErikZalm/Marlin/ PROTOCOL_VERSION:1.0 MACHINE_TYPE:Mendel EXTRUDER_COUNT:1 UUID:00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000

    This repetier command show me about my printer.

  • Yes you have marlin and the config is not for bed. E.g.
    #define TEMP_SENSOR_BED 0
    means you have no heated bed sensor. So you must modify config to include bed support and upload that.
  • I change parameters and i going to load firmware to my board (printrboard) .... I press reset button and conecting to PC. My board change name to AT90USB1286. Its ok but i going to arduino- tools- port.... And this section i have problem. I dont see port COM3 in who connected my board.
  • I think printrboard goes into DFU mode when you set the upload jumper and gets a different port or none. Not sure. It's been some years I uploaded to that board. Also make sure to use the right board in arduino ide. I think you needed to add the board first. But here I think google would help more then me.

    Board is right only port have problem and doesn't reading my board...

    Boot jumper i used.
  • Under windows make sure no other software like Repetier-Server/Host is connected to the port or it will be blocked.
