Problems with ultimaker2 hardware/software ?

Recommended Posts

I am having new problems with my Ultimaker2. I am trying to feed new filament in.

I go to the menu, go to "maintenance"—"Advance"—"insert material" and then it crashes and immediately restarts.

I have tried other fiction that relates to material, and overtime it crashes and immediately restarts.

However moving the plate around is no problem, it works fine...?

Also the on/off button in the back doesn't seem to work as well, if I turn it off, all it does is dim the led lights. It has to be unplugged...

So far I re-installed CURA and re-installed to firmware. The install went fine, but the same problem persist after that.

Any ideas?

One more detail: This particular printer hasn't been used for a few month, but it was properly stored, in it's original box in a storage room, and worked fine before that.

Please let me know what the next step is.

cheers.

I found the problem.

There seem to be a short with the servo that drives the filament. I unplugged it and replugged it after taking the board out, and it seems be working again. The board probably has a fail safe, that forces everything to shut down and reboot when it feels there is a short… Which why it only shut down with commands that controlled that particular servo.

cheers.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
