So, I was printing via USB from Cura to an Ender 3 3D printer. It shut down 3 times, has to be less than 5 min. single digit loads. I’m on my 4th shutdown watching some youtube. the printer is unplugged, hasn’t shut down yet.
Can the USB or Cura do this?
I’m going out in a bit, I’ll leave it running with a looped video so I can be sure its still running.
UPDATE: This is crazy, I’ve run a video playing for 5 hours. no shutdown. Somehow printing via USB 2 to and Ender 3, It prints for a few minutes and the computer shuts off. I’ll see how this goes overnight.
Take the motherboard out of the case lay it on its box.
And do the same usb printing test.
If it still shuts down, then you might wanne chech the printers usb cable.
Or the said usb port you use.
If it does not shut down anymore, then its likely a contact issue with the case / backplate.
Sounds like Software problem. Either the board needs fixed/better bios from manufacturer (you might be running the latest bios, but might still need a fix.) or windows 10 is doing something totally silly.
I remember having that happening with fx series cpu’s while watching youtube. issue just disapeared one day and never occured anymore.
I’m pretty damn sure it’s something with software. because the hw didn’t change at all.
