    I have a Wanhao Duplicator i3 which I just put a titan + v6 on. The hotend works great but the motor I received with the Titan (42BYGHM208P4.5-15-X2) clicks as soon as it receives its first command, grinds as well, but never turns. I changed the E steps in the firmware to 837 steps already as well. I can push back the lever and manually extrude so the hotend is certainly not the issue. Any guesses? A post on reddit seemed to suggest someone thought the Melzi board needed upgrading to RAMPS? (https://www.reddit.com/r/3Dprinting..._extruder_and_e3d_v6_on_an_wanhao_duplicator/)

    HELP!

    Check your stepper driver voltage.

    The original stepper my Wanhao i3 had was a Bohong 42HB34F103AB. From what I can find, the i3 is 12v, but the current to the motor is apparently 5V.
    "The board is powered from 12VDC which is then regulated down to 5V by a 7805 linear regulator (DPAK surface mount with heatsink). " --http://3dprinterwiki.info/wiki/wanhao-duplicator-i3/part-specifications/

    Don't know what I need to do to get 12V to it. Override the linear regulator?

    Thanks
