Prusa i3 pro W connection to pc Problem.

Post by JonasK. » Tue Apr 03, 2018 1:23 am

I have a problem. when I start Easy Print 3D and try to choose a Com Port there are no com Ports. I had installed the driver manually, but In the device Manager , there isn't the serial port like the port in the picture of the manual. So how am I able to connect the Printer?

It seems the driver install failed.
Try to close the firewall then install it again

Thanks. I have now a connection in the com port (Com3), but the printer get no commands.
At the bottom of Easy Print 3D is written:"connected:I3ProW Extruder 1: 0,00°C/Off "...
but on the printer it sais "180/180°" hot and it feels Very hot.
Why arn't the information going thrue?It is connected (isn't it?).
By the way In "Control" is written "9 Command Waiting".

okay, turn off your firewall William said before.

Install CH34 Driver:

Are you using USB 2 or USB 3?
Better to use USB 2 with the CH34, many forums recommend it.

I have 6 USb ports in the back.(top left is destroyed of the first Power Adapter)
Are the black one USB2 and the blue USB3 or Is it USB and USB2?
I had noticed that the PC makes noise if I plug in keyboard or Mouse,
but it hadn't made any noise when i conected the printer.
