My printer recently successfully completed its last print. I came back to it a day later and the screen was black. I cycled the power, the printhead fan spins for about a second then nothing, the screen stays black the entire time. The LED's remain lit on the olimex board, i have noticed the led highlighted in red below is half illuminated when the power is switched on, then after about 2 seconds it then goes solid green and the fan stops and nothing happens. I have tried individually removed the print head cable, one wire to the heated bed and the bed PT100 sensor however i get the same problem. When i remove the PT100 sensor the LED slowly fades from solid green over the course of about 10 seconds, instead of staying solid green when everything is plugged into the board. Feels like a short or a faulty component to me.

    Is there a way to check the Olimex board is doing what it should do, as the display screen remains black all the time. There isnt even a back light that comes on.

      • 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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
