On my anet A8 3 printer, running skynet. When I do not use the G29 command, Auto Bed Level, the printer won't print and just extrudes plastic in mid air. But when I do use the G29 command it will home and start to print but no plastic will come out. The extruder motor and the connector both work. Does anyone know what the problem might be, any answers would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, Joe. and by the way the start code i use is this...

G28 X0 Y0
G28 Z0
M190 S50 ;set bed temp (wait)
M109 S200 ;set head temp (wait)
; ------------------------------------
; Layer #0

G21 ; mm
G90 ; abs
G92 E0 ; reset extr
M106 S0

    $\begingroup$ Probably inside the code there is a wrong parameter or the secuence is not correct, you should post here some initial lines to start printing to verify. $\endgroup$ – Fernando Baltazar Nov 1 '17 at 6:29
