A5S stopping mid print

I have an A5s and recently it has been stopping mid print with no faults and when I check the temps everything is fine. The machine acts like it has been paused but I can hit the pause and resume button on the touch screen and it will move like its supposed to. When I hit the resume button it goes back to the last position it was printing at when it stopped and just sits. I gutted it a few days ago for this same problem and it worked fine after that for a few prints and then back to the same problem. It has also has some issues reading the sd card. Any advice would be amazing!!!!!!!!!

    Display or Card Reader cable plug might be loose.   They get pushed loose - careful opening and closing the case. I like to print right through Cura and the USB cable.  Did you try doing a print that way?
    EDIT
    Oh, yea - I've heard they don't read the newer large cards, and the card reader can be fussy about some cards, and also there is a couple posts I remember about rf interference potential on the display/sd ribbon cables, but I know little about that. I am using one of those foil backed bed insulators if they ever ship it to me. I know that would theoretically dampen interference from the bed heater, but I bought it to insulate.

    I'll bet Samuel would recommend running pronterface and running the log or whatever while you print. If you can't see an issue in the log, still one of the other people here could explain what was executing the moment it stopped if you post it.  But if you can get pronterface going for the diagnosis, it would probably show you most errors and that might help you fix it

    I'll see what I can come up with doing that. I've had trouble getting the printer to connect to the software when it's hooked up via usb so i'd just been running everything off the sd card it came with. Thanks for the advice!!!!!
