I seem to be having the same “stuck on centering” problem that everyone else has.
In my case, I did one acrylic cut and it worked fine. I removed the acrylic and I got the dreaded “Scanning”. I’ve found that we when that happens, I just need to open the lid mid-way about 5 seconds. Then I close the list and it scans.
This time? Nothing.
I power-cycled the GF, and that’s when it focuses, but then hangs on centering. The head doesn’t move at all. It clicks during focusing, but doesn’t move during centering.
Things I’ve tried:
- I powered off the network (modem, router, and GF), waited a minute, then powered it on.
- Reset the network connection twice. (Hold down until the light turns green, select wifi, etc.)
- I checked the network signal. Nice and strong. The wifi router reports that the GF has 4 (out of 5) bars.
If I open the lid, the web-based UI immediately says “lid open”.
If I close the lid, then it goes back to “centering”.
Can GF check the logs and see what is going on?
Since the router is working and the lid generates network traffic (e.g. lid open) immediately, I don’t think it’s a hardware/cable problem.
I’ve been seeing an increasing number of people reporting issues with stuck on centering and stuck on scanning. Does GF have a networking issue on the server side? If not, how do I fix this on my side?
