New UM2+ arrived but LED lights are about half as bright as UM2 ?

Hi,

I've been running a UM2 extended for 18 months now and am very happy with it

I needed more capacity so my UM2+ extended arrived today

Can anyone explain why the LEDs on the new model are much dimmer than the older version?

I've been into Tune / LED Brightness and both are at 100% but the new printer is really much dimmer.

Apart from looking different, this is not as good for photographing models and I was hoping to make consistent timelapses.

Is there any way I can change this?

Thanks!

If at 100% it goes lower than at 50%. I would bet on a transistor

Make sure to check if the lights are getting the power they need, I am not sure what the specs they have/.
