Hello,
I have several Kingroon printers, including 2 KP5L’s. One of these gives me a black screen. However, when switching it on, the message shows ‘booting’ for about 1 second, then the screen goes black.

I have inserted a new motherboard and changed the screen & screen wire from the other printer, but that has not corrected the problem. However, both screens and screen cables work with the other printer.

I have checked and re-checked wires, I have fitted external Mosfets.

When switching on, the light on the motherboard comes on, then goes off. The fan stays on, the light and the fan on the power unit both work, and the lights on the external Mosfets stay on.

Would an internal cable fault cause this problem, as both ribbon cables for the screens work on my other printer? Also, I have uploaded firmware many many times, with and without BL touch firmware.
I am at a loss to know what else I can do. Could you help please? Many thanks in advance.

This is my 5th attempt at reaching someone here, and at this point, I can only ascertain that Kingroon is only interested in making sales. It appears that Kingroon has NO INTEREST in customer support, communication, etc. Your lack of response has taught me a valuable lesson. I will NEVER again purchase ANY product from Kingroon. I strongly suggest anyone considering making a purchase from Kingroon choose a different company.

My 4th attempt on reaching someone here. I’ll add here that it was the half-assembled version of firmware I’ve been using. Also, the 3d touch did manage to complete the auto-leveling through the upgraded menu system via the firmware upgrade. That part has never been the issue. The issue still remains of the screen blanking white and being unresponsive and unusable after beginning a print, or while homing the printer, and even while trying to preheat. The printer also will at times, power cycle itself and reboot while trying to select preheating temperatures. PLEASE HELP.

Does anyone ever monitor this website? This is my 3rd attempt at contacting someone here…. Please respond.

I tried previously 1 week ago,(through the “Contact Us” link) to ask for help regarding this issue I’m encountering since upgrading the firmware on my KP5L. I’ll try here in hopes someone might read and respond. I purchased a new Kingroon KP5L and had been operating it for about a month without a single issue. I then purchased the 3D Touch upgrade kit from this official website, following the tutorial from this website, and then downloaded, and flashed the firmware from this website. It works, intermittingly, sometimes, but will ALWAYS result in an absolute white out, unresponsive screen within the first 3 layers of any print I attempt. Though it might continue printing even after the screen becomes unusable, it will ALWAYS then cause a layer shift (at or around) the 12-13mm z height, while still attempting to print. I have re-flashed the firmware many times(6 or 7), and I’ve downloaded the firmware on 2 different instances, both times running a successful checksum on the zip files. Long story short, I believe this firmware to be buggy and am in need of your assistance so that I might be able to once again use this otherwise good machine. As it sits right now, it’s nothing more than an electric paperweight until we can resolve this.
Thanks in advance for your cooperation in this matter.

There is something strange about using
I think the compression is low.
Please confirm.

I started to Look for the stock firmware, but what I found on your website still needed to be compiled; ie I was not able to find a .bin file to return to the stock firmware. Can you direct me to a .bin file for the stock firmware?

In addition, could you provide documentation on how to better configure the 2.0 firmware? I was hoping to configure the printer so it would do two probes for my 3D Touch, not just one.
