Electronic problems

Post by jean507 »

Hi,

I have been using the printer for a while now and it seems that the extruder and heated bed take way longer to reach their target positions. Now the heated bed cannot go above 55 degrees, whereas in the past it could go around 65 degrees with ease.

Sometimes, and for no reason the prints start shifting in both x and y axis (a layer is printed way off). I played with the pots and tried lowering them, but to no avail. Is it possible that the ramps is getting old and not working as well anymore? Should I replace it?
