I turned on my printer and once I got this image on the LCD screen.
When I turned the printer of and on again, it worked normal again.
I still have the impression that the controller is too slow.
Sometimes during printing, the printhead stalls for a second and then continues, of course this creates a small blob of filament.
I would ask you to provide me with the Serial number of your printer so I can check the date the printer was made and shipped from our factory because we have had a problem with the olimex boards that is used for the display of the HS. The issue with the olimex is due to a modification made by the company that provides Leapfrog with the boards without Leapfrog approval.And I would like to check the serial number to see if this may be the cause of why yuo are having problems with the display you can send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I have the same problems on my printer, it pauses midst print, which results in blobs.
Also, when printing from memory stick, the software is unbelievably slow.
Same problem here. Lots of PC connection problems and the firmware crash mid-print showing the Gnome desktop. Funny thing is you can plug a mouse on the front-side USB and poke around the internal OS. It passes time while you wait for the support center to answer.
I would ask you to please check out this link and see how to do a software update for the display of your HS printer and after check if the issue still reappears.
So I installed the new firmware, and the explicit connection button seem to facilitate the PC connection, but it's still locking up randomly mid print.
And it doesn't alleviate the startup problems I'm experiencing (I have to switch off and on multiple time for the printer to boot up properly).
As I reported in my support ticket, the culprit of those problems seems to be the Repetier/Slic3r software suite I was using. When printing from Simplify 3D, everything seems fine, so I guess Slic3r is generating a GCODE sequence that the host firmware does not like.
When time permits, I'll look if tweaking Slic3r's configuration can help and report what I find.
Thanks for the support.
PS: I'm still having startup problems, but it would be weird if it was related.
Sebastian.eitel, Could you please open a ticket on our support page, then i can explain some ways on how the issue might be solved.
Please request a firmware download via the Ticket System
