A10M keeps dying mid print!

So this has happened a number of times now. During a print about mid way up the printer dies. The screen LCD goes blank, but the back light is still visible and slightly flickering and the fans sometimes but not always go off. Sometimes when turning off and on, if I don't leave it off long enough I ...

Re: A10M PVA Supports

Thanks for your reply. I am disappointed to hear this, but guess I should have done more research into dual extrusion with PVA before buying this printer. I guess that's why the M stands for mix, and they didn't use a D for dual, since it's like a mixer tap on a bath. I might try using a really larg...

A10M PVA Supports

Not sure if this is even possible anymore with a single nozzle, as I'm having such difficulty, but the real reason I bought this printer was to print with PVA support. The PVA needs 190 degrees, but my PLA seems to work best at around 210 for a strong bond. I tried both at 190 degrees (to stop it fr...

Re: Gifted a Geeetech A10 but impossible to find documentation or support online

Thanks, but if you read my comment I'm asking about the retract between extruders. When it switches from one to the other for dual printing.
I should make it clear that I'm talking about the A10M. Not sure why there isn't a separate forum for this printer as it makes it very confusing sometimes.

Re: Gifted a Geeetech A10 but impossible to find documentation or support online

I would like anyone just to tell me what the hell the retration settings are supposed to be between extruders. I have it at 18mm right now but really I'm flying blind because there is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING on line about what this is supposed to be, and I have been asking for months in various places an...

Re: A10M Retraction Settings

Same here. 10 times worse when doing dual extrusion. Never had so many issues with a printer. I'm trying PVA as a support material and it's blobbing and stringing like mad. The worst part is when I have retraction set at 18mm and 30mm/s and when it does this before going to the prime tower it leaves...

Re: Color mixing software - trojan??

Thank you for the reply.
I followed your link back to original source again, but not sure if this is the latest version, as it says "Created on 23 Oct" in description?

V Wheels binding

No one else here seems to have this issue, just similar cases. Maybe the issue is being mis-identified by either those who come accross it or perhaps I'm missing something. Anyway.... Wherever my bed stays on the Y plane, after a few hours (gets worse the longer I leave it) the platform seems to dig...
