Ultimaker 3 "Unrecognized Print Core"

Hey all,

 

So my AA 0.4 print core in slot 1 of mu Ultimaker has been worn out I believe. I bought a new Solex Everlast kit, and started working on inserting it today. I started the print core change process, and after inserting the new Solex core into slot 1, the printer gave me a motor control error and the screen froze. So I restarted it, and then it said "An unrecognized PrintCore was inserted in the print head." The screen was frozen and I can't do anything, so I had to turn it off again. I took out the new core, and turned it back on, and it came up fine. 

 

So I went through the Load process again, and same result - "Unrecognized PrintCore". I took it out and turned it off, and back on, back to normal. So I tried the Load process again, this time to put the original AA 0.4 core back in. I did that and now - "Unrecognized PrintCore". I tried this a couple more times, and each time the same error.

 

So I decided to try the Solex core in slot 2. I went through the change process, and this time the printer took the new core and accepted it like nothing! So I tried loading the good AA 0.4 core from slot 2 into slot 1, and behold, "Unrecognized PrintCore"...

 

So, TLDR, my printer won't accept any print core in slot 1 now, Ultimaker brand or not. Any help?

    Contact 3DSolex, it seems the Solex print core has damaged your print head board due to some contact problems.

    Hmm I might have to. I also found out I can't print without a second print core inserted, so the printer is completely down and out now...

     

    I tried a factory reset also, and no luck. So it's still stuck.

    Hi,

    you could try to clean the printcore-contacts of the printhead with a cotton swab and alcohol and perhaps reseat the plug of the printhead cable. Possibly it's just a contact problem and no circuit damage.

    Regards

        (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.
