Print Core Not Recognized and Not Removable

Recommended Posts

Posted · Print Core Not Recognized and Not Removable

During a print the print came off the bed and all of the filament became jammed around the print core. After the removal of this jam, the print core is no longer recognized by the printer (it may have been damaged by the jam or during the removal). Now it is impossible to remove the print core because the printer says that there isn’t one. What should be done now?

First check if the pads on the printcore pcb are not damaged and if the contacts on the printhead pcb are also not damaged. the printcore might nog be recognized because something bent while it was jammed or during removal.

it might help if you post some pictures of the printcore and printhead and printhead pcb so we could take a good look at it.

      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.
