UMS5 disaster recovery

Recommended Posts

Posted · UMS5 disaster recovery

After all I may be able to repair the disastrous head crash that I reported earlier today. Four wires were ripped out, and I have now identified them correctly, soldered and replaced them. However, I am stuck with the metal plate for the silicone covers. It seems that two metal plates have fallen out of the printhead. It is unclear to me how to insert the second metal plate. Might a good soul instruct me on what to do?

So this second plate moves around a little bit (maybe 1mm in X and Y).  It goes above (closer to the camera in your photo) the main plate.  Notice that the second plate has narrower slots.  The silicone passes through the wider slots first, then through the thinner slots on this loose plate.


I don't know why this plate is loose.


To get the silicone through the more narrow slots I get just a little through by pushing from below then I have to grab the silicone with pliers and pull it firmly through these skinny slots.


You can purchase these silicone pads extremely cheap.  I think 5 for 10 euros.  Something like that.
