Hi All,

Should start by saying this is now resolved and was a simple problem to fix.

I started a print yesterday with my UM2 and all was fine, when I came back to the print at the finish the bed was cold, following that I couldn't get the bed to heat up at all:(

I got the volt meter out and checked and there was plenty of voltage going to the bed, when I looked closer and some more testing I could just work out the solder conection had broken.

Luckily there is (very randomly) a place just up the road which make circuit boards, I took it to them and 2 min later all was good.

I thought I would post this I case anyone else has the same issue as I couldn't find anything about it on the forum which makes me think I was a touch unlucky with this one but as a said an easy fix!

Otherwise the UM2 has been working brilliantly and it's been mostly user error;)

Cheers

GBR1

    Can you post pics of where this dodgy solder connection was?

     

    Here u go. Should say that UM support was very helpful as well..

    Its hard to make out in the photos but its the main live cable terminal..
