I bricked my Da Vinci 1.0 3D Printer upgrading firmware to 1.1.i. There are now 2 black bars across the LCD screen.
Is there a way to place the .bin file on the SD card? Or Some other method to place the printer in a boot loader mode?
I made a mistake and bricked my Printer when I accidentally downloaded the firmware. I have followed all the steps listed here but I haven't had any success. My computer won't recognize my printer at all.
I am a bit of a noob.
Is there another way to reset the printer or go about remedying the situation?
Thanks for everything
Did you install the latest atmel studio and bossa drivers?
Does the printer show up in device manager? (Watch device manager as you plug in the printer and see if it shows up.)
If device manager shows bossa then you have the drivers and you need to follow this:
c:\bossac.exe -p COM15 -U true -i -e -w -v -b c:\firmware.bin –R
EXCEPT = c:\ will be the location of bossa.exe
COM15 will be the com post the printer connects as (found under device manager)
c:\firmware.bin will be the name\location of the firmware you want to install
Let us know exactly where you are getting stuck.
I installed atmel studio 6.2, arduino 1.5.6-r2 and sam-ba 2.12. I copied C:\Program Files (x86)\Arduino\hardware\tools\bossac.exe to c:\ along with a copy of the firmware i renamed to firmware.bin.
When I connect my printer, nothing changes in the device manager. Any thoughts?
Power the printer off. Connect jumper j in center of board. Power on for 5 seconds, then back off. Remove jumper. Turn printer on then plug in usb. Device manager should automatically find bossa device.
Be advised this erases the printers hours and serial number. As such, it may effect warranty. Search the threads for the commands to restore the serial number.
Thank you! I appreciate all your advice and guidance. My printer is no longer a brick.
My board looks newer. Doesn't have the 3 buttons or the jumpers. Any help on getting my printer back online? :whistle:
Mine has no jumpers or the 3 buttons. How do I go from here?
For sake of gaining information please take as high a res photo of the board as possible.
Looks like it is still there, just not populated. It's marked jp1 right in the center of the board. You will likely need to use tweezers or something to join the pins during power up.
Curious, had their tech super told anyone how to reset the board or re flash from a failed upgrade? I suspect not, that instead they are swapping boards or exchanging printers.
Ooops, I just saw your other post with pics.
[strike]It may be that XYZ have upgraded/changed their boards.
When exactly did you get it?
Could you take some pics of your board?
Try and get a couple of closeups of some of the bigger chips also, so we can try and identify it, and see what exactly has changed.[/strike]
I tried the jump method and had no effect. When I ran Bossa "autoscan" it show it couldnt find a device. It recognizes something in a serial port, but wont allow me to connect to it or cant find it on autoscan.
Sounds like you are using the gui version of bossa. It also sounds like you might not have the correct drivers installed. You need to use the command line version included with the latest atmel ide.
Atmel installed alot of drivers automatically. Not sre exactly which one I need. Also, I tried this cmd line " C:\bossac.exe --port=COM8 -U false -e -w -v -b firmware.bin -R" in cmd and got "SAM-BA operation Failed"
This is as close as I've gotten to cmd giving me anything. Am I missing anything on the cmd? starting to go into deep waters with command lines...
