Ender 3 skr mini e3 V3 not connecting

What is the problem?

Octoprint can't connect to Ender 3 with SKR mini E3 V3. Interesting that I'm able to see my files on SD card despite printer offline state.

What did you already try to solve it?

Tried 5 different cables, Unchecked "Request exclusive access to the serial port" in the OctoPrint settings menu.

Have you tried running in safe mode?


Did running in safe mode solve the problem?

Hello @Andrejs_Pidjass !

It's the weirdness of Creality firmware.

Try this:

Also try without SD card in the printer's SD card slot.

Never thought that a little piece of tape could solve that problem. :slight_smile: Thank you so much! Now it connects flawlessly. Should I consider to update a firmware or it's better not to touch anything if it works for now?

As long you know to workaround that flaw and it works well, it is ok.

3rd party firmware can be a solution to, sure.
