EEPROM Configuration Window wont show - need to update my E-Steps

edited May 2020 in Windows
Hi all!
Sorry for any shortcomings as i am new to the 3d printing community.

Anyways, the issue i am having is i need to get into the firmware editor and it is NOT grayed out, yet when i click on it, i get nothing.

I am running a Monoprice MP10 Mini printer and here is the firmware dump from the M115 command:

12:35:44.116 : VERSION: 71 PROTOCOL_VERSION:1.0 MACHINE_TYPE:Malyan 3D Printer EXTRUDER_COUNT:1 UUID:d1cc1864-70e0-423f-8573-8ed698f82c27
12:35:44.116 : Boot reason: [BOR PIN POR ]

12:35:44.116 : Cap:CASE_LIGHT_BRIGHTNESS:0
12:35:44.116 : Cap:EMERGENCY_PARSER:1

I am able to manually communicate with the printer, i can call manual g-codes (M115, M501, M504, etc.) and i know i could use this to manually set the new E-steps for the extruder via g-code but i was just curious why my configurator window isnt displaying.  Did i miss something?

Thank you in advanced!!


  • Host detects firmware type with ID from M115 and this does not contain Marlin. So guess that is why it is not detected as marlin firmware and now host does not know. Repetier-Server would know it since you tell it the firmware name explicitly.

    You can of course still use the commands manually to change eeprom as well. With next host release there is for this reason a working firmware selector.
  • Ok so sorry answer is my firmware isn't supported by the host eeprom configuration tool yet.

    Thank you for the fast reply!
  • Our host does not detect that it would be supported, so it does not do it. You can disable easy mode and send
    then you see in log the commands to change the eeprom settings with current values. Send them with adjusted parameter and then store to eeprom with M501 or use repetier-server instead which does not have that problem.
