  1. @nallath None of those files can be downloaded, it's just a bunch of lines of what I'm guessing is firmware code. I don't get why none of those hex files cannot be downloaded.
  2. I've built the Marlin firmware as mentioned originally, to no avail. Which firmware update is most original in the provided list?
  3. When taken out of storage, the printer's power switch was in the "ON" position and it did power on and display the typical home screen once connected back to power. What you said about electronics being stored for a long time has me wondering if that's why Texas Instruments' graphing calculators used to have watch batteries on their control boards, in addition to the normal power source batteries. Still, that can't be mitigated this day in age?! I would really just love to get the firmware that came with the printer to try, or some sort of script that can rewrite the board if it's not actually damaged: Probably a gamble here.
  4. Hello All, I thought I was going to get to 3D printing tonight, and just like any printer that hasn't been used in a few years and was updated, it's now non-functional. When I set up the printer from storage, the power switch was already on, so it just powered on right away, but that should affect what I'm about to explain. I think it probably just jumped too far up on this update and now is corrupted. So, I downloaded the latest Cura as any sane person would do, went through the normal motions of installing, and then checked for firmware and then proceeded to update. The firmware said it installed, and then the screen started showing letters in every other place holder on the screen. I specifically remember Q changing to q, starting from the top and then proceeding like reading in the Western world. Cura has destroyed all functionality of the printer now, and it seems like no one has had this issue, or that UMO support articles are just getting scrubbed. I get that the printer is old, but the Makerbot Replicator 1 world has literally 1000X the articles for things like this, so am I just unlucky? I even tried that Marlin firmware builder, flashed it through Cura, etc. and that did not change anything with respect to the screen displaying correctly. The screen just displays as shown in the attached image. I don't think we've used this printer in 3 years, but it printed last time and now all I hear is my Dad's lesson of, "This is why you don't do updates." Why can I not solve my own problem by just being able to download the literal original version of the firmware? Ultimaker, c'mon...
