Posted · Second Board...dead...or is it?...What's happening? Please help.

I have a scratch built ultimaker. It's been working great. I love it. But now for the second time, the first time I wrote off as a bad part, the front screen stops working and the whole machine seems to die. I've attached a video. When I disconnect EXP 1, the printer seems to come back to life, but I'm not sure what the actual problem is. I've been running tinker's firmware, but it's been working great since I completed the build at the beginning of the summer, around May.

Has anyone seen this?

After printing non-stop all day, I took a break to talk to the missus. I turned the machine off. When I turned it back on, thirty minutes later, the machine turns on to silence and a repeating click, as if one of the steppers is trying to move. The screen doesn't come on, nor do the lights.

 

Disconnecting exp1 seems to fix the problem, I suppose, but the machine of course cannot be controlled then.

I tried connecting via mattercontrol, hoping to control the printer without the screen. This seems to work, but I am not really comfortable with it. Is the front board dead?

      • 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
