Suddenly my Snapmaker (Original) stopped working.
When I turn Snapmaker on,
The following happens:
(1) Fan in the controller unit
(2) Fan in 3D printing head
Does NOT work:
(1) Touch pad is blank,
(2) USB cable from controller to computer does not get any response from the computer.
(Tried changing to different cable, no luck)
Usually the above is the case, now.
But once the following happened could not reproduce it yet.
After keeping Snapmaker on for some time,
suddenly the computer recognized the Snapmaker,
with the familiar “new device recognized” bell.
I fired up Snapmaker Luben and started printing.
The Touchpad also lighted up.
Snapmaker started making a loud rubbing noise, while moving the
print head and the hot bed.
After 3-4 seconds the sound went away.
The printing was incorrect, the print head was too high from the hot bed.
So I stopped the print from Luben and started calibrating using the Touchpad,
before I could touch the first point for calibration, the Trouchpad died, and
I heard a bell noise from the computer for the USB connection being dropped from the
Looks like a controller problem to me.
Any help Is appreciated.
I am out of warranty, I bought it on Jan 2019, and just started to use it now.
The controller costs $90 (from other stores NOT from snapmaker!!) .
Only used Snapmaker at most 15 to 20 hours.
Any help is a appreciated for debugging this.
