I have been having problems with my Any Cubic printer with thermal runaway shutdown

What is the problem?

I have been having problems with my Any Cubic printer with thermal runaway shutdown.

What did you already try to solve it?

Contacted AnyCubic support but they think windows is the only OS. The step I am at with them is to upgrade the firm ware of the printer. I have the hex file and have been attempting to use OctoPi to update the firmware. these are the settings in the flasher general

Githup suggests To compile firmware with the binary file protocol enabled, uncomment this line in Configuration_adv.h:

I have no Idea where that file is. Just asked ChatGPT and have some idea how to change the Merlin file.

Have you tried running in safe mode?

Not sure what is meant by this.

Did running in safe mode solve the problem?


Systeminfo Bundle

You can download this in OctoPrint's System Information dialog ... no bundle, no support!)

It is difficult to say, because the thermal runaway issue does not appear in the logs.

Does a heater do not heat at all?
Does a heater do not recht the target temperature?
Does a heater overshoot the target too much?

A thermal runaway usually is a hardware issue, not a firmware one and can't be removed by a new firmware.
