No power after new build

Posted · No power after new build

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.

    Contact Ultimaker support (by email or phone) it's quite possible your electronics board was damaged during transport. They can set you up for a replacement.

      • 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
