I haven’t used this printer for something like 3 years. It has been kept in the attic in fairly good condition. I got it out and cleaned it and was hoping to print off some stuff since after 3 whole years I now actually have some stuff that i’d like to actually print. I was worried about the condition of the filament, but I now realize that is definitely the LEAST of my concerns.
It does the following:
Upon power on, it will move the 3 arms upward until hitting the limit switches, and they stop. Stays with both button breathing white and green LED breathing. This is definitely expected since after 3 years I’m in a new house, I don’t have the same wifi SSID anymore.
So I have done the step where I hold the button while plugging in power and continuing to hold until the button starts alternating white and orange. I released it then. Subsequently I’ve been hoping to spot the flux broadcasting its own WiFi SSID, but I haven’t seen it. It behaves the same way as before… green breathing, white breathing on the button.
I’d be totally happy to have to load USB drives with a file to get it to print from the file. But… I think I have to find a way to get the flux software past the “pairing” state in order to be able to “Export FLUX task”, right?
I’m pretty ready to order a new printer. Hope someone can convince me one way or the other what I should do.
