S5 high pitched whine


Recommended Posts

Posted · S5 high pitched whine

Hi, Have had an S5 for about a week or 2 now and since day one its been making this high pitched whining sound coming from inside the machine. Sounds like how capacitor whine sounds in old video cards.

 

It's causing some people to be quite annoyed in the office.

    Thanks for the reply. Unfortunately dimming the light between 0 and 100% makes no difference in the pitch or volume of the whine. Nor does raising or lowering the bed 😞

    Often such a high frequency "whine" occur in the power supply, try to tilt the printer a little to one side, in order to hear if this whining is created under the printer (where the PS (power supply) is located.

    Those PS operate at high frequency and can sometimes make such noise if the coils potting is in suficient.

     

    Thanks

    Hei.  Tried it and its Peetri quite under the printer. Its coming from inside. Maybe a stepper motor? Guess I should get in contact with the reseller and ask about warrenty

    Hei der.

     

    Do you also have this whine after printing?

    Most printers release the power to the steppers after a completed print. Hmm, but not sure if the S5 do this..

    Anyway, it's a good thing to contact the reseller.

     

    Good luck.

     

    Torgeir.
