    So, I've had something new and a bit concerning happen lately. Maybe it's nothing.

    The last few times I've turned on my printer, the music has been distorted. Sometimes there's a...hitch in the notes. That's new to me. The most recent time I've turned it on, instead of "beep da beep da beep beep beep" I got "beep da beep da beep beep beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep".

    Anyone heard this one before? Anything I should be concerned about?

    Can you name that tune in 4 notes or less?

    I'm not a music person, so I'm going to go with "Smoke on the Water".

    Ha, with a choice like that I think you are definitely a music person.

    I don't think it is anything to worry about. I have honestly never realized it made a noise.

    Figured out what was wrong - it wasn't a computer problem at all, but a mechanical problem. The belt was slipping in the plastic sled (it looked like the sled warped with the heat) so the head wasn't being moved consistently. I jury-rigged a fix by adding masking tape underneath the plastic piece that screws onto the sled and bites into the belt, and so far it's been printing correctly. Hopefully QIDI Tech CS will send me a replacement sled just in case.

    Welp, looks like my bed heater has gone out. Just sits at 18c no matter what I do. Contact my friends from QIDI, did a couple things, and now am apparently going to be waiting on parts.

    While I wait the (presumed) weeks to get the replacements, does anyone have any other suggestions on what to check? How about printing with a cool bed?

    They were pretty quick for me on one.
    I think you could do PLA ok. May take some work. Google PLA and no heated bed.
