Posted · Ultimaker² not working

Just unpacked the new Ultimaker² and watched the videos, plugged everything in as suggested, but the rotary button at the front does not move beyond the first screen for the initial set up. I assume the button does not work. it lights up so I have power, any suggestions. does the machine have a reset code I can enter?

    Can you take a video showing the push action and rotate action? The knob should push and you should hear a click sound from the computer (a short beep).

    The screw holding the knob may be loose. It all comes apart starting with the cover at the bottom - don't try to remove any of the large panels - no need for that. There's assembly instructions in a large PDF somewhere that shows exactly how to put together a UM2.

      • 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
