Hi All,

My new Ultimaker 3 (less than 10 days) died. The first problems started this morning, presenting problems with the menu ( I was not able to select the "material" option from the menu). Now the fan works for 1 second and nothing else.

One post fron November 2016 suggests that a faulty Wifi Card can be the cause (https://ultimaker.com/en/community/30370-ultimaker-3-wont-boot) , but, I do not want to intervene the UM3 considering it has been with us less than 2 weeks.

Have you experienced a similar problem? Thanks , and enjoy the weekend,

    This is an unusual problem and I think worthy of getting major parts replaced. It could be I suppose as simple as a loose ribbon cable to the display board. There should be 2 cables. You could check that one of them isn't falling out.

    But I would start by contacting your reseller and asking if this seems like a good idea to try.

    Hi @gr5. Thanks for your time and answer. I already sent an email to the reseller and UM3 is already in the original box , waiting for the answer.

    I was not able to unload the filament, so, I decided to cut it with a plier.

    Many thanks

    :)

      • 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
