Updating my ps3
After a while of looking it up online, I found out that the issue was with an old firmware, so after a little research, this is what I discovered and what I had to do to update it.
This guide is for linux, if you want a guide for windows, here’s one that is the equivalent of it:
If everything works fine and it is ready to accept the commands, you can download the updated firmware from the site.
Here’s the link: Just download, extract, and use this command to update the firmware: If everything went according to plan, you should be able to just unplug the USBASP from the arduno and plug it into the computer , all ready to go. Kit Build/25/1 Printrbot Jr Extruder Instructions (is not included with normal instructions): I had to take a knife and file down a little bit on the wood in where the hot end goes in so it would fit, and it slides up inside the bottom of the wood extruder parts, then there’s two long screws that go through the wood and into the beveled part of the hot head to keep everything locked into place.
After you get all of that set up, make sure the bed is perfectly level with the nozzle, you can do this by just moving the nozzle to the corners and turning the bed levelling screws until the nozzle looks like it’s just touching, but you can just barely slide a piece of paper between the bed and nozzle.
After that’s all done, you should be able to plug in the USB cable to the computer or raspberry pi, then plug in the power for the printer.
I've somehow managed to resolve it each time that it has happened in the past, but I'm never sure what I did that fixed it, and I can't remember the processes I went through. I need to know exactly how to fix this problem whenever it comes up, or possibly even prevent it from ever occuring again. I don't have the money for a new hard drive, and I don't even know if that's the problem, since I've fixed this when it happened before (how, I don't know)..
I've never sent my system in to Sony for repairs, so I know that that's not necessary. But I'd like to focus on an immediate solution for now.. You could try accessing your PS3's factory mode and then choose to rebuild its database, followed with restoring the system settings (if the former shouldn't work out).
Also, you’ll need to short the program pin, on mine, it was pin 2 but you may need to check yours to see what yours is.
I used a piece of wire on mine shortly to short them together, just by putting the wire through the holes and wrapping the wire around the whole USBASP programmer.
Then try to use this command in the command prompt, if everything goes correctly, it’ll say something like “AVR: ready to accept commands” or something like that: If it complains about “AVR: not found” or something like that, then check your wiring, or check your programmer’s chip to make sure it has the ATMEGA8, and if not, change the “m8” to whatever chip is used.
You should hear the sound that it makes when the usb is connected in windows, or in linux, by using the terminal, type lsusb into the terminal and you should see something with 4 capitilised letters, like YUSD or something like that, I forget what it shows atm, but it is something like that.
If it doesnt make the sound in windows or show up in lsusb in linux, just unplug the power cord from the printer, and plug it back in.
