Ultimaker Original controller crashing


Recommended Posts

Posted · Ultimaker Original controller crashing

Hi,

My Ultimaker Original with Controller upgrade has been working well for several years.  Recently however the controller crashes almost immediately on boot or in the middle of a print job (from SDCARD).

 

I've established that its the controller that's at fault as I removed it (unplugged from mobo)  and am printing without issue via USB with Cura.

 

Note that the Controller has been working successfully for a few years but it's only begun to crash recently.  I've tried re-seating the cable connections.  I haven't yet dismantled it to see if there's anything obvious in the way of poor connections.    The crash causes a kind of 'blue screen of death' in that the screen remains backlit but all the characters disappear and any print job immediately halts.

 

Any feedback much appreciated.
