Faulty LED light strip

Recommended Posts

Hi all, hopefully an easy one.

An LED on my UM2 has failed (I believe) which has caused the remaining 5 in that segment to go dim - please see picture. Red arrow is failed LED.

Can I safely chop that segment of 6 LEDs out without any detrimental effect to the printer? It'll just draw slightly less power right?

Forgive me if that's a stupid question - mechanical background! :-)

Cheers,

Matt.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
