Ultimaker Original + repair


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker Original + repair

Hi, For some reason the power supply board on my Original + upgrade went short circuit last week.  I found the circled rectifier to be shorted and is now replaced - the LED D40 now lights green but the power jack labelled 19V is only measuring 5V.  The 24V input is measuring correctly.  All external cables are removed, any ideas what else could be wrong or if I need to do something else to see 19V at the jack?  Thanks for any pointers.

    I figured that the 19V jack might need some load to switch on fully but even a small load of 100mA drops the voltage to zero so there is something else blown I suspect - Ultimaker support can you help me please?  Thanks.

    Do Ultimaker provide support anymore?  I can't find any help from them on how to repair my printer or find a replacement power board?  Please contact me Ultimaker.....?

    I think it is easier and faster when you contact an Ultimaker reseller and ask for the needed spare parts. I am not sure if they have parts for the original, but I guess they can help.

      • 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
