Your printer’s firmware supports host action commands, but then are disabled. The firmware will not inform OctoPrint about job pauses & cancellations, filament runouts, and similar firmware-side events. Fi fou want this functionality, you need to change you firmware’s configuration.
I updated the firmware to SV06-v192A-1028-1.3.bin:
Mine was on 1.9.0_A
Now the error in Octoprint doesnt seem to appear anymore:
Its pretty easy to install (even there are no instructions I could find).
Download the bin to a micro SD card.
Turn the printer off
Insert the card
Turn the printer on
Let it boot, it takes about 20 seconds and then it starts.
Be sure to test things like runout and pause etc. On the SV01 Pro you can compile a new firmware with host action commands on but it does just remove the error in octoprint. This because Soval is running a heavy modified marlin version, where they have written many of the subroutines themself, and those do not support remote control.
Well this is turning into a mess. I have tried to load the firmware into my SV06, placed the SV06-v192A-1028-1.3.bin file on a new SD card and inserted the SD into the printer with the power off. Then powered the printer up by the main power supply but there was no noticeable difference on boot. The
screen came up and then displayed “SD INIT FAIL”. This is the same message I get when ever the the SD card is in the slot at power up.
I read somewhere, probably another printer brand, to rename the .bin file to “firmware.bin”. Tried that but same thing.
Anyone have a fix?
Ok the power has been restored after 25 hrs so I can get on line…
Big problem is the ft/sd cards I am using are to BIG. So ordered some 8g cards. Now wait.
The card that came with the printer is a story. I printed Benchy and all went well but after loading a couple of other files and printing them it suddenly stopped working. Anytime I tried it showed “SD INIT FAIL” and when checked in linux with fdisk -l it reported no partition table. I hadn’t checked that before but I do remember seeing 3 files listed, manual, benchy, and the bin file. So it got chucked…
an old trick. You buy a 1024 GB SD card for only $0.99
The first MB still work, but at some point you only have data garbage.
Brand name - 8, 16 and 32GB cards from a domestic source are still reliable.
