Printers known to ship with broken or unsafe firmware, or broken electronics

A list of printers with known-to-be-problematic stock firmware or electrical issues, based on years of user reports and fielding support requests.

Please note: This list is not exhaustive. Just because your printer isn't listed here doesn't mean it has safe, well implemented firmware and electronics, it just means nobody has yet tried and added their experiences here. So please test and update accordingly with your results to help others in the future, thanks :slight_smile:

:raised_hand: Warning

Considering the sheer amoung of issues observed in this community with Creality stock firmware and electronics, at this point we can only strongly recommend to flash your own Marlin and either apply the 5v pin mod or better yet swap out your printer's controller.
