By the way your file for the Geeetech I3 Pro C file had problems you should fix before adding it to the web for down loading . .
In the Configuration.h file . . You have the "Y" Axis set TRUE in one spot and FALSE in the other made the Y Axis lock up . . You need to fix that before turning it loose on the population
I set both to TRUE and it loads and works now ! ! :D

Hi, i have been battling about two days with my new prusa i3x to get the firmware installed and so far i have made very little progress so any help is appreciated.

First i tried with newest arduino and i3x marlin fw (http://www.geeetech.com/forum/download/file.php?id=1589) but that was not uploading no matter what i tried (fixed all the fpos_t errors but after that there was rx_buffer and some other errors) so i changed to arduino 1.0.1 and that seemed to work better with same fw but after 15 min of waiting it to upload all i got was numerous errors of avrdude:stk500v2_ResendMessage():timeout and avrdude:stk500v2_getsync():timeout communicating with programmer.

There are no blinking lights in the mainboard while uploading but there have been some progress eventhough it has never uploaded the firmware yet, in repetier host i could never even press the buttons in manual control tab (they all were grey), but now i can click them but theres no reaction in the printer, fans are 100% and extruder stays still.

I can control the printer from its own knob, x and y axis are moving and extruder and heatbed are heating so i think its all about to get the right fw in?

One thing i havent tried is resetting the printer, but now i think that why not, maybe it would help? Also there are 2 com ports available com1 and com7 and com7 is the usb serial, but theres really no difference which one i use, have tried with both ones with similar results. Using Win 7 64bit

btw, these kind of messages repetier-server gives when i try to control the printer through it with about 30 seconds delay:

Hey everyone,

I wanted to upload the firmware for my i3 pro a 3 in 1 control box.
This error appeared, do someone know how I can fix this?

Thank you for your usb reply, i think it could very well be usb problem although i never had any problems with any other usb device connected straight to h81m-p33 motherboard (usb sticks, cameras, phones etc..) but i guess this printer asks for more eventhough i had the power switched on in printer too.

Anyway i think one of the problems was that i had not changed the firmware type in repetier server. In printer settings on the general tab there was repetier-firmware by default (i think) and when i changed it to marlin, i managed to upload the marlin firmware to the printer. It could have been some other issue too, cant even remember what changes i made before it uploaded but it did nevertheless. But all is not good, after the firmware was uploaded i could see the extruder and heatbed temperatures in repetier host and in the log box there was all the information about the firmware as it should, i could move the heatbed and extruder with manual control tab, but could not change the fan speed, which is 100% all the time (with that i can live with), but the main issue now is the z-axis. When i tried to move it was pretty much grinding still. The smooth rods were pretty hard to push through the bearing by hand when i was assembling the printer so i think i just have to grind them a bit smoother now (with p150 sand paper).

However when i tried to home z-axis it just made loud grinding noise like it was going against the wall and as it didnt stop even by pressing the emergency stop button and i didnt think to push the end stop by hand i turned the power off and after that i had not been able to connect it. When i turn on printer, connect usb and click connect in repetier host it just says repetier-server succesfully connected and nothing works. Tried to plug the usb off and plug it back in while its on and disconnecting and connecting from repetier host but nothing works, so it very well could be the usb problem but im not sure.

Btw, is there a correct order in starting up the printer? I have options on repetier-host and repetier-server, printer power and printer usb, for example: i turn the printer power on -> plug in usb -> click activate in repetier-server and click connect in repetier-host, have tried almost every way but nothing seem to work after that emergency shut down.

edit. got the host saying this when unplugging and plugging in the usb while uploading fw:

17:28:25.894 : start
17:28:25.894 : echo: External Reset
17:28:25.894 : Marlin1.0.2
17:28:25.894 : echo: Last Updated: Jun 10 2016 14:27:06 | Author: (geeetech, I3 config)

17:28:25.895 : echo: Free Memory: 3748 PlannerBufferBytes: 1232

but it doesnt work still, but some progress i think

Hi everybody !

I'm new in this forum.
I just bought my 3D and I have a problem with motor direction ...
I tried to change the lines codes in the configuration.h in Arduino (i'm a beginner) and transfer it on my Prusa i3 but I have this message :
"Taille binaire du croquis : 115 738 octets (d'un max de 258 048 octets)
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_ReceiveMessage(): timeout
avrdude: stk500v2_getsync(): timeout communicating with programmer
"
I work with a MackBookPro 10.11.6
In Arduino I select /dev/cu.usbserial but I have an other one /dev/tty.usbserial and I don't know the difference ...

Someone have already get this problem ?

Thanks a lot


NB : I'm a french guy, so excuse me for my mistakes in english :roll:

Your GT2560 does not have a bootloader flashed. In order to do this, you will need the info from here

http://www.geeetech.com/forum/viewtopic ... 20&p=27978

as to what pins to connect to.

You will also need an Arduino. I suggest you buy an Arduino Nano clone from eBay. Once you have that, look up how to use the "Arduino as ISP" sketch.

Wire everything up and use the Arduino nano to flash the bootloader onto the GT2560.

After that is done, you can then program the GT2560 like you have been trying.
