UMO with HBK: Heated bed causes resets.

Recommended Posts

Posted · UMO with HBK: Heated bed causes resets.

I recently upgraded my old Ultimaker Original with a heated bed kit.

Everything works, but heating / controlling the bed causes random resets. When the bed temperature is set to 0, everything prints fine.

Just setting the bed at 60° and not printing will not cause resets, but when the bed is controlled during a print, it resets frequently, but randomly. Could be 5 minutes, could be 30 minutes.

I suspect switching the bed on/off causes some power fluctuations . Currently don't have a scope to verify this this.

Checked all the wiring to make sure it's not a short or loose wire somewhere.

Anybody seen this before? Any ideas how it could be resolved? Like putting a big capacitor across the heated bed connector, for example.

- Printing from SD

- Electronics 1.5.3 with upgraded arduino mega256 board

- Ful graphic smart controller

- Marlin 16.04.1

Sort-of fixed it by now. I connected the original power supply next to the power supply from the HBK. So I guess for some reason, the HBK PSU does not deliver enough power.

I'd check the label on each power supply brick and see what each is rated for.

On my heated bed upgrade to my UMO, I really had to screw down hard on the terminals to make a good connection. When I was reading your post, I was thinking you might have had the same issue I had. But if you have a weak power supply, that'll cause problems!
