Alas, another 2 issues with this Taz 5 Dual v2 I’ve been working with. It seems determined to put me in an early grave.
There has been this issue with the Taz randomly disconnecting itself. I have reinstalled the firmware and checked its accuracy more times than I can count, to no avail. It randomly does this all the time, at least once a week.
Is it more likely an issue with the board, the drivers, or the computer/usb?
See the image where it says “firmware unresponsive” in the communication log, then where I issued an emergency stop…
So it appears that T0 can’t hold its temperature. It will be set to 235 and print for about 30 minutes or so, then it drops to roughly 225, 226 and struggles to get back to 235. This happens a few times over the course of a print.
Obviously its something wrong with the hot end… but which part? Should I just replace the entire hot end? Or is it something else?
Keep in mind I’m using S3D here but the problem happens no matter what slicer is being used.
Could this connectivity failure have anything to do with the temperature drops as well?
