Heating up the bed causes Ultimaker 2 to restart

Posted · Heating up the bed causes Ultimaker 2 to restart

My UM2 is about 4 years old but I use it only moderately. Since yesterday it restarts each time I try to heat up the bed, half a second before that the lights flicker or get dimmed for a moment.

 

I found some threats about this, but is there really not way to test if its the bed itself, the power supply, the pvc? Does anybody have an idea how to track this or already found a solution? I tried to re solder the beds connections and leave a little gap between plastic connector and bead but no success so far..

    I think a defective power supply, or one that is deteriorating, might also cause this? If it would cause a drop in voltage?

    Thank you Geert,

     

    do you know by chance if the UM2 and UM2+ have the same power brick?

     

    I have no idea, so I will leave that question to the Ultimaker people and distributors.

    I suspect that all devices of the Ultimaker 2 family were supplied with a power supply of the same power:

    100-240V 4A, 50-60Hz, output 24V DC, 9.2A 221W max.

    Also the plug to the MainBoard should be the same for all devices.

    The only exception is the small UM2 GO, because it works without a heating bed.

    I only have the Ultimaker 2. The information I took from the official specifications of the Ultimaker 2 / Ultimaker 2+.

    Exceeding the power brick a tiny bit can cause the power brick to drop out and start again, making the machine restart. It’s a safety mechanism that better power supplies have. As long as there’s no shorts or faults in the machine, then the brick might be the problem.

     

    2 and 2+ seem to use the same power brick.

      • 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
