No power after new build

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone. I've recently built my first Ultimaker. After the build I try to power it up and the power supply will short out. I checked for shorts and could not find anything.

I then removed all of the connections except for the cooling fan for the electronics and tried again. The power supply still shorts out. Does anyone have any ideas as to why this may be happening?

Thanks!

How do you know the power is shorted? What was the clue? Did you measure the current?

It's likely you have a bad board :( but maybe you have a bad power brick?

The only reason I can tell that it shorts out is that the power light on the power brick goes off when I turn the unit on. I measured and after the unit is turned on I get no power coming from the brick.

    • "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.
