How to update the firmware to a new version?
What if the filament is not discharged from the machine?
When the machine returns materials, it cannot be returned. What should I do if it gets stuck in the pneumatic connector?
Where can I download the user manual or firmware of the ANET ET4 3D printer?
When the machine is leveled, the nozzle moves to the left and can be leveled normally. When the nozzle moves to the right, it is found that the distance between the nozzle and the heating bed is very far or very close. If the spring is adjusted to the extreme position, it still cannot be leveled. How to solve?
After the machine is heated, the filament is discharged normally. However, when printing is executed for the first time, curling occurs on the platform. After printing a few layers, the filament will leave the platform. How to solve?
After booting, the screen is black. How to solve it?
How to solve the leveling failure of ET4, ET4pro and ET5, ET5pro?
How to solve the problem that the nozzle can not be heated after turning on heating?
How to solve the problem when the hot bed is turned on and cannot be heated?
How to adjust the origin of the new ET4 proximity sensor?
What should I do if the X-axis direction of the printed model is offset?
The consumables are almost used up, how to replace the consumables during printing?
Steps for leveling while printing
ET series printer: switch auto pop up when pressed (can't be pressed down)
The printed model is very rough with supports
The LCD screen shows that the nozzle temperature is 300°/0/error, and it cannot start working after opening the file and waiting
When the Z-axis motor moves, the screw seems to be out of concentricity, and the motor cannot be lowered to the lowest point
The motor continues to move beyond the range of the printing platform
When the motor returns to zero, it still moves forward after hitting the limit switch
No response when turning on the power switch

Firmware & Mainboard of Anet ET4, ET4+ and ET4 Pro
Could the motherboard of ET4 be upgraded to ET4 Pro’s? Does the TMC2208 version of motherboard you’d like to order compatible for your ET4? Recently it seems to be a big concern among some users.
Today we are going to give a clear answer but before that let’s figure out how much do you know about ET4 & ET4 Pro, at the most superficial level.
1. The Differences among ET4, ET4+ and ET4 Pro
Around the beginning of Feb 2020, we had an upgrade on Anet ET4 on its leveling sensor. But it’s not our task in this article to tell how the new and old ET4 differ in their functions. We just pose it to tell you what the differences in their appearance for avoiding the happening of wrong update when someone doesn’t see clearly what model their printer belongs to.
1> Their Nameplates and Colors.
“ET4+” is just a habitual call to identify the new ET4. In fact, ET4 and ET4+ have the same name “ET4” on the nameplate pasted on the left side of their pedestal and the same black + red color. ET4 Pro is named as, of course, “ET4 Pro” with full black color.
2> The Leveling Sensors
ET4’s leveling sensor is a film strip while ET4+ and ET4 Pro have the same sensor build-in automatic bed leveling sensor.
Film strip leveling sensor on ET4
Build-in leveling sensor on ET4+ and ET4 Pro
3> The Firmware Info
They all have their own name displayed on their firmware info.
Firmware V1.1.5 of ET4
Firmware V1.0.0 of ET4+
Firmware V1.0.2 of ET4 Pro
2. The Matters of the Commutative Motherboard Upgrade between Any Two Models of ET4 series
So when you read here, we must assume that you will never mistake any model of ET4 that’s already been released. Before you update the firmware of your ET series printers or plan to order a TMC2208 silence mainboard for your ET4 or ET4+, please note that:
· The firmware/mainboard of ET4 cannot be upgraded to ET4 Pro, and vice versa.
· The firmware/motherboard of ET4+ cannot be upgraded to any model of ET4, vice versa.
· Please confirm the TMC2208 step driver silent mainboard you want to order has the firmware consistent with your printer.
If you didn’t upgrade your printer according to these requests, your printer would exactly brick.
