UltiController SD Card slot broken

Hello EverybodyMy UltiController has a broken SD Card slot. If you slide in the card, it pops right out again (so it's not locking in place). I have that issue since quite some time now and my solution until now was, that I created my own ulticontroller case with a sd lock slider :). Have a look:5a33103b8d83e_2015-05-1907_01_34.thumb.jpg.cae0377ac92d3541901f956353614bea.jpgI allways thought that on my next order for a teflon piece I will order a new board (or maybe fix it with a new sd card "holder").My questions:

  • Anyone with the same problem?
  • Did you replace the SD Card slot or bought a new UltiController board?
  • Where to buy only the board (igo3d OR ultimaker store has only the kit).
  • other ideas?
  • out of context: how do I add a
    before and after thumbnails?

Thanks.Martin

    If you want to replace it you could also just buy a cheaper ramps full graphics controller like reprapdiscount. They go for 20-30€ and you can print the box (many designs on thingiverse or youmagine).

    Search Full Graphic Smart LCD Controller Ramps compatible.

    And with @amedee firmware builder it's very easy to activate that:

    Hi @Neotko

    thanks. I allready have one of those (I forgot to mention that, that's right) and I now how to change marlin to make it work (amedee's firmaware buider is fantastic btw, thanks for that!). I bought the full graphic smart lcd controller for another project... small cnc mill.

    But I actually like the "small" footprint of the original UltiController... so if it's doable, I would like to fix it / replace it (also would like to keep my case :)). I might just desolder the SD card slot and replace it...

    Best Regards

    Martin

    Youe case looks good indeed. You clearly know more about this than me. I would just buy a sd extension and make the fit fixed and place the new sd card loader on a cool spot. Also it's a fast way to buy a new connector if you are going to solder it.

    Resurrecting an old post...

    Martin,

    Did you ever solve the broken SD card slot problem? My SD card slot just broke on my 1.5 month old UMO+. I like your custom UltiController case, but I'd like to just get my printer working again.

    I guess I'm still in the warranty period, so if there isn't an easy fix on YouTube or something, I'll contact support.

    Sorry for the late reply. No, I never solved the issue, I worked around and it works for me...

    Thanks for the response. I ended up calling support and they sent me a replacement UltiController board. The UMO+ warranty period is one year, so it was no big deal.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
