S5 performed a routine when powered off

Posted (edited) · S5 performed a routine when powered off

Hi,

 

My s5 was powered off and someone who was in the room with it said it came on, made some noises (lights came on), then after a short time went dormant again?!

 

Does it perform some sort of self test/update on it's own?. Strange !

 

Sorry, scrub this, misunderstanding from the person in the room 😃😄

    It is part of the start-up routine that the printer enables the frame light and disables it again. Finally, the printer should be ready and have the lights enabled/disabled according settings. If it goes completely off, check the power cord and if that is ok, contact your reseller if the problem persists.

    Hi, it's not a problem with it not powering on, it was powered off (at the switch on the back of the printer) and have been told it started doing something on it's own for a short time. Without any interaction from anyone or the power switched being moved to 'On'

    The only thing a S5 does "on its own" with the power switch off is lowering the bed; actually gravity does that. The induced current by the z-motor could result in some flickering. For sure it does nothing else as that power switch is a mechanical switch. If it still has power, then something would be wrong with the switch.

     

    The only other, very unlikely, explanation is that it is haunted by a 👻 😉

    Haha, yes, I updated the first post to say it was a false alarm !!, turns out when the person in question said 'printer' they meant inkjet not 3d printer!!!!! 😄😄😄😄

    🙂 That's really funny, but very real.
