S5 LEDs no longer dim...?


Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 LEDs no longer dim...?

I've seen a few notes about some up-coming firmware fixes related to having the S5 LEDs actually turn completely off when not printing.  This isn't that issue.  All of a sudden, my S5 LED dimming function no longer works.  The slider does nothing, and the "On when printing" switch does not dim or change the brightness of the LEDs whatsoever.

 

Any ideas?  Right now the machine is stuck at full brightness, and I just powered it up...

 

Thanks!

    As with most computers I would begin by shutting it down; wait a minute or so and then bring it back online as it could be a simply glitch in the software.

     

    By the way; are you running the latest firmware; if not I encourage you to update it.

     

    FYI; the led dimming should work however, being able to turn the leds off has not been addressed yet.

     

    Takes care

    As far as I know, there was a bug which was fixed with the latest firmware. Not all S5 printers had this issue but I read about problems with a non-functional slider.
