Sbase and the reprap full graphics smart controller
« on: March 27, 2018, 05:26:38 PM »
                   

         I came across a rather annoying issue with the Sbase 1.3 and the reprap full graghic smart controller,  which to be honest hasn't been documented well at all on the WWW.  by default smoothieware  comes with the panel section for the controller leaving the user to uncomment to activate it.
           The problem after configuring smoothieware and installing the controller ribbon cables to the sbase, am left with the dreaded blank screen and the occasional bleep!.  After reading some drastic solution on the web ie under powered, user error in configuring  with some  other rather drastic measures of needing to add extra resistor to the contrast pot on the controller etc..

           The solution this time was rather simple and it comes down to having to rotate the ribbon  headers 180 have to cut out some notches in the headers to allow the ribbon conns to fit     
               

once that done and plugged in all should be good.

               

 just go back to firmware and fine tune those panel  setting and spare yourself and disable the buzzer! happy printing .

you have to swap the headers aswell?  like ext 1 goes to 2 and 1 to 2 on , common fault with the ramps adapter,  what I first thought  with the sbase  just I didn't have to swap cables round! took a morning too work that out  :'(.
