    Hi
    I Have Anet A8 (skynet 1.1 firmware)
    Everything works well for a while, I even printed a few things.
    But now the printer gets stuck or just goes crazy after auto leveling is finish.
    I took a video of the problem.
    Video link:


    many thanks
    Roei

    Well that LCD is scrambled. That usually is the LCD connected wrong, but if it started out working then it is either the LCD or the control board (RAMPS on the Robo -- not sure what electronics the Anet A8 uses, but probably not a RAMPS board). You may need to replace the control board. I imagine you could swap over to generic electronics:
    Google suggests:

    Hi
    Thanks for your reply.
    But I don't think it's a screen problem.
    When I turn on the printer everything is fine including the led screen
    But when I do the auto leveling, at the end of the auto leveling, the printer is freeze .
    Sometimes there is a display on screen and sometimes the Z motor or the X motor keep
    moving without stopping but in all cases the printer no longer responds.
    Thanks again
    Roei
