Ultimaker S3 Digital Factory 'connect' button non-responsive

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker S3 Digital Factory 'connect' button non-responsive

hi! new to the UM fam. have a small farm of UMS3s for a higher-ed college. earlier today I put x5 machines on Digital Factory; they all appeared and I renamed them. One of them then went 'missing' (grey, circle-X) from Digital Factory. At this time the 'connect' button at Digital Factory menu is non-responsive. See: https://photos.app.goo.gl/KRcPcjdHgTk7KDBa7

I have attempted rebooting, Reset Digital Factory (via Settings), and Reset all printer settings (also via Settings) - I'm not sure what else to do, but the button is not responding I therefore cannot connect the printer to Digital Factory. Any thoughts?

    The video link is working for me. 

    One question, is the printer able to access the internet? 

    What happens when you try to check for new firmware updates?

    Please export the printer logs via the touch screen settings menu and upload them here or send them to me via DM. Without those we can't really see what is going on.

    My work's UMS3 also had this problem when we purchased it. I tried everything I could to get it to work (different networks, ethernet, wifi, factory reset, cura connect reset, you name it) but ultimately the only thing that worked for me was to do a firmware recovery procedure with the help of my reseller. I first flashed to 5.3.10 then to 5.7.2 then I updated the firmware to 5.7.3 and I was able to get the digital factory code after rebooting the printer. If the above suggestions fail, I would ask your reseller to help you with that procedure (I did it myself all you need is a screwdriver and 45mins-1h).

      • 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.
