Morning everyone!

So, I seem to have run into a slight problem with my UM O+.

It appears that my display is not showing anything. I've managed to accidently start a print, so I know the software is working.

I've followed the instructions as well as I could, but I'm hoping I did a mistake instead of having to get a replacement.

    Your symptoms are what I would expect if one of the ribbon cables was backwards. Unfortunately I don't know where the red stripe is supposed to go. And how do you know which cable is which?

    I have a UMO and a UM2 but the UMO+ has a mixture of equipment from those 2 machines so I'm not sure how the ribbon cable is supposed to go.

    also it looks like those 2 cables each have a backwards crimped ribbon - which shouldn't matter as long as you are consistent with the red stripe - but still - strange.

    Where in the manual (I have it open) does it say which ribbon connector goes where?

    A bit off topic. It's so great to see 2.1.4 boards with the new UMO+ :O

    Great news for better future um2 hotend use =)

    Also yea, reupload the firmware, that what's looks like when a board has um2 firmware on the umo+ display.

    Also since you are installing your machine. You can get a um2 led strip from any ultimaker distributor, it sticks and fits perfect and works like a charm when you use the Amedee firmware builder https://bultimaker.bulles.eu

    And how it looks the leds on umo+ when installing it:

    Did you read the post right above yours?  Please supply more information about your problem.  I can't tell you how many times people say "I have the same issue" but they have a completely different issue.

    Sorry about that. I'll try to be more thorough in the future. I just updated the firmware and it worked like a charm.
