HELP! Printhead won't move!


Recommended Posts

Posted · HELP! Printhead won't move!

HELP! My ultimaker original + is not working :( The printhead is not moving. When I push the "print" button on Cura it stays in the start position. And the orange plastic runs out. I don't now what to do anymore...

When I run the bed leveling wizard it also stays in the start position. The head will not move, but the motors do move.

Does anyone please know what to do?? I need to print tomorrow in my classroom with the children and there parents... :(

    Motors moving? Motors can move but if your printer has loose set screws on timing pulleys the print head can't move. Do you see when you look at short belts any reactions. Because short bells moves next to motors. Z-axis moves without any belt because of threaded rod.

    Can you make any video?

    good luck

      • 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
