Temporary yellow/purple MEGA2560 printer patch

Hey all,

Just letting you all know that I have had a look at the yellow/purple printer and found that I cannot connect to MEGA2560 board, even when disconnected from the printer.

Soooo I am going to attached my control board to the printer (temporarily) until we can get a replacement or until my printer is finished.

Just letting you all know.


Hi Geoff,
Is a new Mega board all that is needed to get the printer up and running again? - i notice the space doesnt have any funtioning printers atm?

Hi David,

As far as I could see, the yellow i2 needs to be rewired to its LCD board. I do not know how to do that, but I’ll give it a look next time I go to the space.


Hey Geoff,
Do you know what has happened to the Arduino and Ramps Shield for this printer?


I do not know what has happened to it. Is it missing?

ramps and mega have been located and I have re assembled the wiring and loaded some firmware… lcd works… but my config isnt quite right… does someone have a copy of the firmware from when it was last working?

Cheers David

I can configure the RAMPS if you would like.

Ok cool. It needs the changes as per the link below for the lcd panel to work.
