Hate being negative ;)

I got one for you...,all of a sudden all 4 of my Photon Mono X's are printing  backwards right to left.  Everything is in reverse !!!   :(  I can mirror the stuff I send to it, but I've never seen anything like this.   Anyone else having this issue.?  Generated an STL file with an arrow and lettering on a different computer and go tthe same result.

Any of the USBs used for file management have a firmware image on them? Maybe something corrupted. I would try flashing fresh firmware on one and re-installing the slicer software.

Be careful before flashing .. can cause more problems than it fixes ..   Read this first   https://www.chitubox.com/en/article/support/howto/chitubox-free/slicing/44

1) Reboot the printer
2) get a new USB formatted
3) Check the slicer software settings
4) Print the cube file or the RERF test file
5) Print an older file ..

My printer shows the thumbnail on the screen sideways. Might have something to do with Chitubox (slicer).

If you are using Chitubox for the slicer, I think there is an option to mirror under the Machine tab.  Maybe that got changed accidentally.

Is there a canned 'test print' file that came with the printers?

Sure sounds as if this is the reason.  It's extremely odd that all four printers started mirror-printing simultaneously.
