Prusaslicer with Ender-3 V2 Extruder stops feeding

On layer 3 my extruder stops feeding it will retracted but not go foreword after layer 3

If i use a different slicer it works all the way to a finished part.

It is not a hardware problem

I tried the new version of Prusaslicer and V2.3.2

I have Jyers build v1.3.4 and running OctoPrint V1.6.1

Verify extruder move type

Make sure your startup gcode sends M82/M83 commands for absolute or relative extruder movement that matches your PrusaSlicer settings.

RE: Prusaslicer with Ender-3 V2 Extruder stops feeding

I am having this same issue.  I just upgraded the board in my Ender 3 Pro to the 4.2.7 32 bit silent board and now it seems to just stop printing mid print.  It doesn't happen when I use Simplify3D.  I am running Octoprint 1 .7.2.  I have a 2nd Ender 3 Pro with the same board and Octoprint version and it has no issues.  I just tried updating the Marlin firmware (from the original to the same that I'm using on the 2nd printer) and that didn't help.  The Marlin firmware is 2.0.

I made sure that both printers have the same startup Gcode which does include M83.  I believe it is the default Gcode for Prusa Slicr.
