Can't "Press the button to continue"

Recommended Posts

Got an Ultimaker 2 for Christmas today.

Just opened the box, connected the power and switched on following the manual. Screen shows the welcome message and invites me to "Press the button to continue": no way! Pushing slightly, firmly, in the middle or on the side, short or longer push... Nothing happens. Super frustrating. Looks like some cable would not be connected properly or what... Any help very much appreciated.

Yes, most likely a bad connection. With the power off, check under the printer, at the back of the lcd panel, and then undo the couple of nuts that remove the cover over the electronics, and check the ends of the cables there too. Make sure the cables aren't trapped, kinked or loose.

If it's not an obvious loose connection, then I suggest that you open a support ticket at support.ultimaker.com, and hopefully someone from the company will get in touch on Friday when they reopen after Christmas.

      A: Materials which are hard in a solid piece (like metals, ceramics and carbon fibers) will generally also wear down the nozzle. In general one should assume...

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
