hi, I've been spending this afternoon freshening up my UM2, replacing Bowden tube, coupler,heater cartridge and temp. sensor (and cursing the sadistic designer!) Got everything done ok but I appear to have dislodged a connector from the board, a orange and brown wired one. There appears to be an identical unattached connector about halfway up the sleeve to the head. I haven't pulled at it for fear of disconnecting something else. Can anybody advise where they should go?

    Yes, there is a spare cable there that fills no purpose. I noticed that when I got hold of an old UM2 head for my UMO+.

    Yeah, I seem to recall something like that too... will have to dig out my pre-upgrade UM2 head when I get home, see what the spare looks like.

    Yep, it's the spare.

    Thanks guys, yes I traced it back and indeed it was the other end of the cable. Put it back together and it's working perfectly now. Thanks for the assist!

      • 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
