New CR-6 SE Causes Room Lights to Flicker

  • Greetings all.

    I recently bought my first 3D printer, a CR-6 SE.


    • The printing experience itself has been good so far, however I've run into an incidental problem. When I start a new print, any lamps or room lights on the same electrical circuit as the printer, will begin flashing.
    • At first we suspected that the electrical circuit itself was not operating within in safe limits and was experiencing voltage drops, so we moved the printer to a different circuit. Unfortunately the same problem still presented itself.
    • I then bought a Cyberpower UPS (uninterruptable power supply), model CP1500PFCLCD. Plugged the printer into it, as well as a lamp, each on separate outlets. Then I begin a test print. No voltage dropping was observed through the UPS's meter readings, however the lamp's light still flickered.

    Unfortunately having the room lights flicker isn't something that we can have occur as it's quite hard on the eyes. Could you help me figure out what's happening and find a solution to the problem?

    Thanks in advance.
