How to solve the problem that the filament of LK series 3D printer cannot be extruded?

1. The filament has not entered the Teflon tube. Please manually load the filament into the Teflon tube. 

2. There is a certain distance between the filament from the cold end of the extruder to the hot end. The filament has just been loaded, please wait.

3. If it still cannot be extruded, check the distance between the hot end nozzle and the heated bed (when the nozzle is too close to the heated bed, the filament cannot be extruded from the nozzle). 

4. If it still cannot be extruded, the nozzle may be clogged. Check the situation without loading the filament. If the extruder is working normally, the hot end is clogged and the hot end needs to be replaced.

How to solve the problem that LK series 3D printer cannot recognize Micro SD card files?

1. Use the formatting tool to format the Micro SD card. The SD card format is FAT32, 4096 bytes. It is recommended that the SD card capacity is less than 32GB. and reload the file.

2. Dip the SD card in alcohol, unplug and insert the SD card into the slot several times, wait for the alcohol to completely evaporate, and then restart the computer to check whether it can be read.
3. If it still cannot be read, there is a problem with the motherboard slot and the motherboard needs to be replaced.

Why isn’t my 3D printer’s extruder working?

1. Check the installation of the extruder cable plug (E refers to the extruder).
2. The extruder will work after reaching the hot end set temperature (minimum 195 degrees) by default. If it still cannot work, check the installation of the extruder motor cable.
3. If it still doesn't work, swap the X and E motor wire plugs to control the motion reference video respectively.

How to solve "Error 8: E mintemp triggered"and"Error 10: E maxtemp triggered" of LK4Pro?

How to solve "Error 9: B MINTEMP"?

1. Check whether the thermistor is disconnected
2. If you need to test whether the thermistor has fallen off or the motherboard is damaged, please re-plug and unplug the heating bed terminals; if it fails, use a multimeter to test whether there is a resistance of about 80-100kΩ on the middle 2 pins of the aluminum substrate. If there is no resistance, the aluminum substrate is damaged. If there is a resistance value, the motherboard is damaged; if there is no multimeter, you can exchange the thermal terminals of the hot end on the motherboard and the heat bed. If the hot end reports the minimum temperature after the exchange, the aluminum substrate is damaged; if the heat bed still reports the minimum temperature after the exchange temperature, the motherboard is damaged.

How to solve "Error 12: E thermal runaway"?Is there a free trial available?

1. Check the installation of the hot end thermistor and the hot end heating rod plug.
2. If everything is installed normally, there may be a break inside the cable or poor contact. Replace the hot end.

How to solve the problem that "Resume printing" is displayed normally on the power input during the printing process?

1. Update the marlin version 2.0 firmware, the following is the firmware download link;

How to solve the problem of flame sensor sensitivity?

1. Cover the flame sensor probe with an opaque sticker. This method is not recommended;
2. The flame sensor is damaged and you need to apply for after-sales replacement of the flame sensor. You can temporarily turn off the flame sensor function before replacing the sensor. The specific operations are as follows:
2.1 Connect lightburn/lasergrbl, select the correct port and baud rate (115200)
2.2 Send the command "$38=0" to turn off the flame sensor function (if you want to turn it on again, please send the command "$38=1"), the settings will be automatically saved.
3. It is necessary to adjust the flame sensor trigger threshold to reduce the probability of false triggering of the sensor. The specific operations are as follows:
3.1 Connect lightburn/lasergrbl, select the appropriate port and baud rate (115200)
3.2 Send the command "$42=1300" on the console. 1300 is the trigger threshold. The smaller the value, the less likely it is to trigger. The factory default value is 1700. The setting will be automatically saved. After that, you can send "$42" to read the setting value to ensure the setting success.
3.3 Test whether it still triggers falsely. If it still does, repeat step 3.2 and change the threshold to a smaller value until it no longer triggers falsely. 

How to solve the alarm 2 error message in Lightburn?

You need to click Home to reset the engraving machine to zero.

Why is my Filament non-stick platform?

Check whether the slicing software parameters are the default parameters of the Cura Longer machine, and try to re-level it (the appropriate distance between the nozzle and the printing bed is the thickness of an A4 paper). For leveling, refer to the video in the link below. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJ0MOFPuOTQ 

When the room temperature is low in winter, the adhesion ability of the model will be poor. You can increase the temperature of the hot bed appropriately (5-10°C), or apply solid glue on the hot bed.

Why does the touch screen of my Longer 3D printer not light up after powering on?

Confirm whether the input voltage range of the switching power supply matches the power voltage in the area and whether the screen cable is connected. If the problem still persists, check the power indicator light and motherboard indicator light (Method: Remove the bottom motherboard protective cover, refer to the video in the link below.)

How to solve the problem that the filament of LK series 3D printer cannot be extruded?

1. The filament has not entered the Teflon tube. Please manually load the filament into the Teflon tube. 

2. There is a certain distance between the filament from the cold end of the extruder to the hot end. The filament has just been loaded, please wait.

3. If it still cannot be extruded, check the distance between the hot end nozzle and the heated bed (when the nozzle is too close to the heated bed, the filament cannot be extruded from the nozzle). 

4. If it still cannot be extruded, the nozzle may be clogged. Check the situation without loading the filament. If the extruder is working normally, the hot end is clogged and the hot end needs to be replaced.

How to solve the problem that LK series 3D printer cannot recognize Micro SD card files?

How to solve "Error 8: E mintemp triggered"and"Error 10: E maxtemp triggered" of LK4Pro?

How to solve "Error 9: B MINTEMP"?

1. Check whether the thermistor is disconnected
2. If you need to test whether the thermistor has fallen off or the motherboard is damaged, please re-plug and unplug the heating bed terminals; if it fails, use a multimeter to test whether there is a resistance of about 80-100kΩ on the middle 2 pins of the aluminum substrate. If there is no resistance, the aluminum substrate is damaged. If there is a resistance value, the motherboard is damaged; if there is no multimeter, you can exchange the thermal terminals of the hot end on the motherboard and the heat bed. If the hot end reports the minimum temperature after the exchange, the aluminum substrate is damaged; if the heat bed still reports the minimum temperature after the exchange temperature, the motherboard is damaged.

How to solve "Error 12: E thermal runaway"?Is there a free trial available?

1. Check the installation of the hot end thermistor and the hot end heating rod plug.
2. If everything is installed normally, there may be a break inside the cable or poor contact. Replace the hot end.
