I’ve read a few forum posts similar to this where the problem was being stuck in “scanning” forever (usually due to needing to replace the Black Lid Cable (which was confirmed by GF today that I should replace.)) But yesterday even after turning off the machine, opening and closing the lid and turning back on after each print, my GF stays offline for exactly 30 minutes… super frustrating! Has this happened to anyone else?
I asked support in the follow up email (after they said I should replace the Black Lid Cable) if there were other actions I could take, but haven’t heard back yet - and I’m getting annoyed with having to wait 30+ minutes to print another project.
To answer all the usual questions:
yes I reset/restarted everything; computer/router/GF
yes I cleaned all connections and re-set the carriage
yes the GF is near the wireless router and there is no interference (I’m in a 10K Sq Ft building where I’m the only tenant and have the only wireless network)
It is peculiar to me that it takes 30 minutes for ANYTHING to happen - the first time this happened was this morning when I attempted to reset the wireless connection by turning on the GF, waiting 30 seconds for the start-up sounds to finish and then holding down the button for 10 seconds - the button did not turn teal as expected - but I left the machine on and moved on to another task. 30 minutes later I heard the “startup sounds,” looked over and the button was teal… I went through the wireless setup and was online and competed a print. Then had to shut down, open and close the lid, restart… only to be offline FOR EXACTLY 30 MINUTES until it was magically online again and making the startup sounds. REPEAT 5X TODAY… Help!
