how to reset printer to factory settings

Post by Linda » April 29th, 2018, 7:33 am

Hi there,

I noticed something strange... When I use the option preheat PLA it doesn't make the steps as before... First it heated the bed and nozzle in steps, now it doesn't... How can I get that back?

I believe there is a Initialize EEProm In the Menus.
Best Way is to send a M502 followed by M500 See Below.

M502 reverts to the default "factory settings". You still need to store them in EEPROM afterwards if you want to.
M500 stores paramters in EEPROM

That is like Chinese to me... I just bought a 3d printer and I noticed at first the preheat pla function did 45 and 185 degrees celcius, after that to45 - 60 and eventually 185 to 200. Now it stays at 45 and 185 degrees celcius. Is that easy to fix???
The only thin in the menus I see that I do not know is : restore failsafe.

EEProm is that a kind of computerlanguage???

EEProm is an Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory

This memory can be programmed with your configuration then saved, so every time you start the system it is configured the way you want it.
Restore Failsafe: is the System Default configurations. This is in case you mess up the configuration, to restore failsafe (Default settings).

Just using the Restore Failsafe will not save the settings to EEProm, this requires the use of the store settings (menu item) or M500
You can also set the default PLA /ABS Nozzle and Bed temps and save them to EEProm using
PreHeat PLA config temp
PreHeat ABS config temp
Under Control / Tempature
