Z-axis won't move while printing

Hello,

I am new in the world of 3-D printing.
I installeed everything so far right and while not printing the z-axis is functioning very good and smooth. Only while printing the printerhead is not moving any layer upwards but still ejecting filament.

It is also strange that when I print a gcode file from SD with certain settings, after the printer heated the nozzle he jumps back to normal settings (e.g. from 220° to 200°) and the speed always shows something like 100%6 or 60%48. I don't really know what the number after it means.

I already tried Cura with different profiles (and after connecting printer via usb) but always the same result.
My version is V1.39.56

Please help me out, I really don't know what to do :(

Does anyone have the example g code files of the sd card? And something to add, I can't directly print via USB. The printer won't respond :/

Hello.
:mrgreen:

The video shows that printing starts when the print head is too high.

1, Temperature drops from 215/220 to 200, maybe you set the print temperature is different from the first layer temperature.
2, Nozzle looks too high that filament cannot be sticked to the bed.
