System Date & Time ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · System Date & Time ?

Had a failed print last night and went to see if there was something in the logs to explain (printer had just stopped in the middle of the print, no visible error).

Log says todays date is Jan 2 1970, and there are only entries from that date.

 

Where can I set the correct date and time?

Anything else I should be concerned about like why it has reset the date?

Which kind of printer is this?

 

The UM3 electronics doesn't include a real time clock that you can set manually (AFAIK). I think, it tries to get the system time from an ntp server, if it is connected to a network that allows this (firewalls or a proxy may deny it). The S5 uses the same electronics.

 

It's normal that the printer always starts with 01.01.1970 - no need to worry.

Sorry forgot that part, its an UM3 Ext.

 

Something happened this night.

Looks a bit odd when you perform maintenance and it says it was 49 years ago it was cleaned.😉

You should really take more care of your printer 🙂

Yes, odd that there'd be user facing interface dependent upon time from the printer compared to time in the browser client if you can't set the printer to something real.  I went through the swagger API list and haven't found anything yet to set date/time or, better yet, have it point to an NTP server.
