Ender 6 printing problem with new printer

  • Ender 6 printer question.

    I am new to 3D printing, so assume I know next to nothing about this.

    I have a new Ender 6 unit. I am having trouble printing anything at all. If I use the touch screen, I can move the print head in X and Y directions, and the platen along the Z axis. I can also manually feed filament and have it extrude through the head. But if I try to print a gcode file using the SD card slot, the printer jingles and then dies completely on me. I tried to print one of the Benchy models from Thingiverse. The only way to resurrect the printer is to turn power off and then back on.

    I am pretty sure that the SD card reader is fine, because I updated the printer firmware using the card. My printer does not have BLTouch, so I used the End-Stop firmware.

    What could I be doing wrong that all the parts work fine individually, but not together?

    Thanks for any help you can provide.

  • I'm in the same situation. I had the same symptoms: printer would auto-home and adjust all three axes fine from the move menu. Extruder and end-stops work fine. When I tried printing, it would get up to temperature, start to auto-home, and then freeze. Did you ever find a fix for your issue?
