Clicking Won't Start Up

Recommended Posts

Hello all. So to make this a quick story... Bought a ultimaker 3 extended, unbox and set up. power on and i immediately notice a clicking coming from the bottom of the printer, it clicks every 7 seconds or so. It tries to go through the start up but stops with an er18. print core connection issue.

 

"There is a communication error with the print head

When this error appears it means that the print head and electronics cannot communicate (properly) with each other. This is most likely due to a connection problem of the print head cable to either the print head or electronics. Please get in touch with one of our local service providers for help."

i was hoping that someone has had this issue or maybe has a fix. I have removed both print cores and re-seated them with no luck. Thank you in advance for your time.

    • "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.
