S5 LEDs no longer dim...?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • "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.
