Hey all, I’m in the process of pulling together my first MPCNC build–which has certainly been a lot of fun, and learning experience so far, though I’ve definitely got a ways to go
So far, the actual process has been relatively uneventful in that nothing has gone awry; I’ve printed the parts, built a workbench, assembled the pieces, run the wires, connected the stepper motors and got Repetier Host installed and recognizing the board. Unfortunately, while working through the process, I noticed that the Graphic Smart Controller doesn’t work (or at least doesn’t appear to) all I get is a flickering white screen and a clicking noise when the ramps board is powered on.
The issue appears somewhat similar to one that was posted on the forums near the end of January, https://www.v1engineering.com/forum/topic/lcd-flickering-white-screen/, though the issue does not resolve/clear up when USB is plugged in. Also, here’s a link to a short recording I have of the issue I’m experiencing–hopefully it’s enough to help illustrate my issue. I’d appreciate any/all assistance anyone may have!
Also, and as a bit of reference, I purchased my parts via the bundle with the upgraded 30A power supply from the site so there shouldn’t be any “weirdness” introduced by dicey components. Hopefully this is a minor hiccup.
