Question about disabling EEPROM & Configuration.h


#1

Hi guys…

This is my first build ever and ive cobbled together a wilson2 but am really having some troubles with firmware / axis behavior…

Main difference is that i used a mini-rambo board which should be ‘better’ theoretically and longterm but most of the instructions/configs i see are for Ramps 1.4.
Ive tried many versions of marlin but all seem to have 1 or 2 issues that dont seem to work properly. ( mainly LCD function & z axis auto-bedlevel using servo )

Ive tried changing pins to get PWN from Zmin ( pin10) and move the switch from Zmin to Zmax then changing the servo to pin 10 ( pwm in Zmax — #define SERVO0_PIN 10 // previously 11

But when i save and try the endstops just doesnt respont and my extruder slams into the heat bed.

My questions are…

  1. i read on another forum that its good to disable eeprom so that the firmware does not try to read old configs instead of the changes you make… is this a recommended step to tak?

if i start with a fresh most recent copy of marlin say Merged 1.1.0-RC6 and try to copy/merge Wilson2 specific settings over to 1.1.0-RC6 will i have to only focus on configuration.h settings or are there other files i need to take into consideration? ( besides pin remapping )

Thanks for any and all help.

ps my config.h file is below for reference… ( i had to delete some fluff to reduce characters and post here )

I wouldn’t disable eeprom - instead just do a “restore failsafe” from the LCD controller (I think it’s in the control menu) and it will copy the compiled-in values for everything that is stored in eeprom. If you then “save config” it will write those values into eeprom so that subsequent reboots will load your compiled-in settings but still give to you the flexibility to change them if needed.

thx @mjrice

uncommenting the eeprom features to save (configuration.h) was a new trick for me.
Seems like a much better way for updating firmware.

I did notice that when you press “restore failsafe” or “save config” that marlin just beeps but doesnt really show/do anything else… ie updating message or anything like that…

assuming that is normal behavior…

Thanks again for your help!
