Hi Michelle.

I just found this through Google. I got a used creality printer, but cannot get it working Looks like a broken USB port on the main board. I am thinking of just buying a new one and starting from scratch.

No. After a lot of messing around, I found out I need to upload the firmware, I think we got that figured out, but to uplaod to the board, you need to power it through the Micro USB port, not through the main power input. But that port is broken off the board. We can buy new plugs, but have no way to do the fine soldering. A new board is like $65. then we are back to figuring out the firmware. A new printer is like $300, thinking of just going that route. The slowly transfer the upgraded stuff from this printer to the new one.
