S5 Unable to Detect PVA during setup

Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 Unable to Detect PVA during setup

Just unboxed a 'new' S5.


I'm stuck at the step 'Load Material 2'.   The S5 is unable to Detect the PVA and the arrow keeps circling round and round.


I even manually selected PVA just get beyond the auto detect step, but the feeder is not even feeding the PVA into Bowden tube.


Does this sound familiar?  What do i need to do?

It is possible you received a PVA spool where the NFC tag is damaged, or not programmed at all.

In the top right corner there is a 'X' mark where you can skip the Welcome procedure and then manually do the steps yourself.

      Through this post I would like to further explain what we are doing, and what you could be doing. 
      Our efforts consist of 2 layers. First; connect medical institutions and hospitals to (local) 3D Printing hubs to help them print parts of which a 3D model already exists. And second, contribute to design the necessary part and then have it printed via a (local) 3D printing hub. Experts are available from within Ultimaker and from within our network of 3D printing experts.
