My palette 2 is not initializing
My palette 2 s pro is stuck on “initializing palette”
what is the problem…?
Is this a good question?
Hey @ehaddad, sorry for the trouble - often power cycling Palette will resolve this issue. Please let us know if this does not work for you and we can try further troubleshooting!
Hey @muckychris, sorry about this - if power cycling does not solve this issue, it is likely a problem with the homing switch (the switch right below the cutter wheel). Could you take the acrylic cover off and take a photo of the switch? Could you also test the health of the switch by going to Settings —> About —> Next —> Next and seeing if the homing switch says “Pressed” when there is filament going through it, and “Not Pressed” when there is no filament present? It might be best to email this information to us at email@example.com with your shipping address attached, as if we do find that the switch is faulty, we will send you a new one ASAP. Thanks for your patience.
Check to see if the magnet is still on the cutting wheel. I had an issue just now where i had a broken piece of filament in the cutter. So i removed the piece and when i went to start the palette2s it wouldn’t start, just the cutter moving. Tried almost everything and nothing worked and the when i searched for cutter keeps moving i noticed there was a magnet on the wheel and low and behold sitting on my screwdriver which i used to get the broken piece of filament out with was the magnet. So i put the magnet back in with some glue and hey presto its now working again.
Having the exact same issue. This thing is junk. From the factory it had faulty parts. Took for ever to get replacement parts, replaced them, and now it wont even get passed initializing. Their “new” parts made the problem worse and bricked my machine.
As Alina mentioned earlier, this is likely an issue with the homing switch. Please check that the tab on the homing switch is working properly. If a replacement is needed, please send us a message at firstname.lastname@example.org
