I am using cura to do my first initial print on the Lulzbot Taz 5 and the extruder won’t heat up but the bed will. I will keep this as concise as possible.
How far have I gotten so far:
I have gone through all the steps in the quick start guide up to putting in the filament and doing the test print. I have leveled the bed homed the axis etc.
Where am I stuck?
I am now attempting to put in the PLA filament and then do the test print. I am using the Control Option on Cura to set the temperature so that I can insert the filament with the extruder pre-heated.
- When I set the temperature of the Extruder to 210 Celcius in cura, nothing happens. The information gets sent to the printer and updates on the LCD Screen saying the temperature is set to 210 but it won’t heat up.
- When I set the temperature of the Bed to 70 Celcius, the BED immediately heats up and nothing happens to the extruder
- After 20 minutes the Extruder heated up from 24 Celcius to 29 Celcius
Does anyone have any ideas for trouble shooting? Did I connect the wires incorrectly? Do I have a software problem? Do I need a new firmware update on the printer? Do I need to get a new printer head?
Thank you so much I appreciate any and all suggestions or ideas.
