JG Aurora A5 Print head crashed into bed and now nothing works
Been using this printer about a year now and have had good luck with it until tonight. I have always used the USB connection to print from and have had no issues with it. Tonight `i thought `i would try printing direct from the PC using Cura. Plugged the printer in and in a few minutes the drivers loaded fine and when I sent my part to Cura it gave me the option to print direct to the printer using USB. Everything looked fine, the printer preheated properly and then the extruder started to move and hit the bed clip and stuck there for like 5 seconds then just quit. I tried to manually move the head up and then try to home but nothing works. I unplugged the usb cable and shut the printer off for 30 seconds, restarted and still nothing works.
Maybe some way to reset the printer?
EDIT: Further tinkering shows that the X axis seems to work fine but both the Y and Z axes are dead. Also, it will not load or unload filament either. I am really starting to believe this to be a power issue of some sort and again really wondering if there are any fuses or fusable links in this printer.
Aaaaand my next problem is that since Y and Z axes do not work, the gantry is as low as it can go and cannot be moved. So you can't open the printer up or remove the upper gantry since the head is too close to the base...
