Repetier # command waiting on DaVinci 1.0A
#1
Hi all,

I have installed the firmware and software to replace my crappy XYZWare with Repetier. All went well but when I connect my printer to Repetier and send any command all I get is " 1 Command Waiting" the number of commands keep growing but nothing happens on the printer side. If I click the OK button a bunch of times, the printer will do what I told it to do until all commands are cleared. I have tried changing to different settings under Printer Setting with no luck. I also tried different cables.

Please help! Thanks.

means you have no communication, so repetier host is not setup properly : https://forum.voltivo.com/showthread.php?tid=8333

Thanks for your reply.

I have already tried all the settings from the link you mentioned unsuccessfully. In fact, those are the instructions I used for my installation.

Thank you for helping me with this Luc. Attached are the screenshots. As I mentioned before, the printer connects but I have to click the OK button in the Manual screen many times to acknoledge the commands and the printer reacts to it.

Thanks.

I am not sure to understand which OK button ?
I see no connection - repetier cannot see the temperatures

Under Manual Control tab towards the bottom, there is the OK button. When I click that button the printer will react to the commands.

well normaly when connecting it read temperatures so no action is needed

Printer is working properly I guess - like doing a homing in printer menu work ?

I would suggest to :
1 - unplug printer from USB
2 - reboot computer / reboot printer
3 - Start repetier / do not connect
4 - plug printer - be sure it is not USB 3.0 port ! they seems bringing some problem
5 - wait the chime then push connect
It should display a bunch of commands from host and answers from printer

another test:
Use the arduino serial monitor, it is in tools menu of arduino IDE , set correct Board/Port and baud (230400) and check if printer send some wait messages

If I use the Serial Monitor, what command do I need to send in order for the printer to respond?
Reply

none but you should see the printer send many wait message

I have the correct port and board selected but when I open Serial Monitor, baud (230400) is not one of the options.

So after playing with this issue for a while and getting help from Luc, I was still having communication issues with the printer. I decided to try a different laptop with same Repetier configuration except this one has Windows 8.1 (the other had Windows 7). Now everything is working like a charm. Not sure what is keeping the other laptop from communicating properly.

Thanks Luc

Does your not working has 3.0 USB port ? it may be the root cause

It is a USB 2.0 port.

The other one is a Surface Pro 3 with a USB 3.0 and that is the one that works fine.

Thanks

I appear to be running into the same issue.

I'll reexplore late tonight or tomorrow, I've about had enough of poking at this thing today...

A nap helped.

Also setting "Reset on Connect" from the default DTR low-high-low to Due native USB port probably helped too. Wink

It's printing with Hatchbox PLA now.

And Cura sliced in 18 seconds what XYZware still hadn't finished in 3hrs +

Jodie, is there no end to your successes?! Superb!

Thank you! But hold your applause until we see if this looks good at the end of this - my first model with a lot of supports (generated by MeshMixer) and by FAR the most complex yet. I will say though that it really looks like fantastically good quality sitting 20% done on the bed, assuming I can successfully remove the supports when it's done. Smile

I do have a lot of good tools for getting in and cleaning up those details though.

Thank you for the kind words!

I would suggest you to review the menu flow available in readme (https://github.com/luc-github/Repetier-F.../README.md) to be aware of all settings/features
and also to review the repetier.ino (https://github.com/luc-github/Repetier-F...petier.ino) to understand the available GCODE commands

Doing this will cover 99% of your coming questions Wink
