Hi,
you can refer to it:
http://geeetech.com/firmware/
Hi,

I have a Pro B with a GT2560 rev A+. As the initial board stopped working at a certain point I have ordered a new one.
What I did:
- used Arduino 1.0.1 as recommended
- upload the firmware
The display shows the printer ready but going into Prepare-->Auto Home nothing happens.
I have tried also to get the .hex file (https://www.geeetech.com/download.html?download_id=34) and upload it using XLoader. No error but still nothing happens.

Strange thing, the old motherboard did not required an USB connection to power up. The new one (even is the same - GT2560 rev a+), does not power up unless the USB connection is present.

Can anyone advise what I should do to get this printer back to life? I read so many pages on the forums but not clear at all what should I do or what I am doing wrong.

Could u attach the wires of it?
I think the wires are incorrect.

I've updated the firmware of my A10 (GT2560 v3) with Marlin 1.1.8 to be able to use the 3D touch using the firmware I found in this thread. I think I have uploaded it correctly, the printer is able to find autohome and proceed to the bed leveling without a problem. However, when I try to print, the carriage stands still at the 0,0,0 position, the extruder motor gets on and it even makes a weird sound as it pushes the filament out like crazy. Is it there something I'm missing? I cannot find anything anywhere.

I replaced the Configuration.h file to go back to the non 3D touch version and it is the X axis the one that gets crazy.

Using Arduino IDE or Cura, when I send G1 to move any axis, the result is always the same, the printer moves X axis and without an X MAX endstop, it doesn't stop. There is no problem if I move the axis from the display of the printer. Maybe the problem is in the Marlin 1.1.8 and how it interprets G codes? I've open the motherboard case to ensure I have the V3 and it is the correct one

Hi,alxo
I strongly suggest checking the "Note" again.
Try to upload it via Arduino IDE 1.8.5

Thanks for the reply. I have the 1.8.8. I'll try again with the 1.8.5

Hi all,

Firmware for the A10M. In the notes, it states a fix for the steps from 340 to 450.

My A10M is showing Marlin 1.1.8 but with 340 steps.

Should I update the firmware to the 1.1.8 from this post with the new E step figure.

Are there any other differences?

Using Arduino 1.8.5 was the answer. I managed to use the printer with the BL Touch. Now I'm fighting to get the proper settings of the printer.

Hi, would you like to attach a picture on how the wires are connected? I checked at least 10 times and everything looks right in terms of wiring.
Please tell me what info I should share with you and I would gladly do it.
