Ulticontroller not functioning

I own an Ultimaker original and an Ulticontroller. The Ulticontroller doesn't seem to be working, as in its not displaying any text. The contrast settings are fine and I've tried swapping the data cables, it does nothing.

I don't think its receiving any data, or theres a firmware problem?

Any ideas?

    What kind of firmware do you have in the UMO? I have a marlin software and that I know for sure you need to have the ulticontroller in the build of the marlin.

     

    According to cura the board should be loaded with "MarlinUltimaker -25000".

    That should be ok since as far as I understand it it should support the ulticontroller.

     

    I loaded up some custom firmware to run some checks and about a quarter of the LCD blocks appear white and then slowly fade out, but the rotary encoder is still effecting things on the screen. E.g When you turn it blocks flicker and when pressed in the usual click noise is made from the speaker.
