[EMS Discuss] 3D printer troubleshooting

Yes were mainly talking about the printerBot here but The Makerbot is
down also, I think it just needs a new Molex connector. The PrinterBot
is skipping perhaps not in the same way that I fixed a while back. Also
the filament feed pinch roller does not alwasy hold it securely. It
seems to slide sideways and pop out.
