Ultimaker not working after incomlete FW update

Posted · Ultimaker not working after incomlete FW update



While I was updating my UM2 FW suddenly my Laptop crashed 😞

When I then wanted to update the FW again, I noticed that the ultimaker doesnt work, the display shows noting, the board is bliking and the LEDs ar lighting a little... and the worst: I cannot connet it with my Laptop(also tried it with my PC and with diffrent cables)


So do you have any suggestions???       (a reset knob on the board  is misssing xD )


Best regards,

    That sounds like you have bricked up the printer, @gr5 is likely to know how to recover it, normally the main controlboard as a sd card on it you can take out and load onto a computer and you will need to copy the files back to it, so hopefully gr5 will be able to tell you the steps for this and point you to the files.
