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.

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
