MPK v1 Controller

Post by Roberts_Clif » April 8th, 2019, 8:52 pm

Today I booted the HIctop MPK v1 Controller for the First time, an thought I had received a bad controller.
Most of the LEDS were blinking in a strange sequence the Display looked fine, though I was not able to change any of the limits.
Fans were on full the extruders on full, was thinking about returning the controller. It was ordered with standard 3DP12 firmware installed.
Making a few measurements, this firmware must be a test program. This was nerve wreaking it took a month to arrive from china when ordered.

knowing I can revert to the original firmware before returning controller, decided to flash Marlin 2.0.x an every thing is working correctly.
Still need to purchase another Controller to have a spare for both 3D Printers. Plus a MKS Base V1.6 Controller Board for my Pipe CNC.

I finally found a good board replacement....

I ordered a BIQU SKR v1.3 32 bit board with TMC2130 drivers. I would strongly suggest considering this board, if your going to be buying one. It was $48 all together.
