CTC MK2 clone no LCD after firmware update - SOLVED

CTC Prusa i3 Pro MK2S I am new to 3D printing and ran into a few problems (2 other threads). The LCD did not have any menu item where I could get information about the firmware. So following a video on youtube I tried to update the firmware of the GT2560. As I just found out in the assembly pdf of t...

Re: Auto home does not take hotbed back

The LCD does not show any information which firmware/version it uses and the included manual advises not to upgrade the firmware. The board is a 2560 Rev A. Can that be used with different kinds of firmware or is there a dedicated firmware? Sorry but you can see I am completely new to 3d printing. T...

What are the names of these plugs?

plug03.jpg plug02.jpg plug01.jpg I ordered an additional fan for my Prusa Mk2 clone and it came with a wrong plug. Ordered a second one, another wrong plug for my board. I would like to order a few plugs for my system but can't really find any on AliExpress or ebay as I don't know the names. Does a...

Re: Auto home does not take hotbed back

Hi Stefan, thank you for the welcome and your fast replay. Config do you mean the slicer's config? If so, there are so many parameters. Which ones would you need? As mentioned I am a beginner so there is no g-code that I would send directly to the printer. I usually grab an stl-file, have the slicer...

Auto home does not take hotbed back

Hi,
I am a newbie to 3d-printing. I built a Prusa Mk2 clone (made by CTC) and am slowly trying to get the hang of it.
A few days ago a small problem started. Whenever I do an "Auto home" only the extruder assembly returns to the origin. The hotbed stays where it is and I have to manually push it back.
