S5 Raises ER54 (filament loading unsuccessful), Online Solution Does Not Work, Material Station Makes Grinding Noises

Posted · S5 Raises ER54 (filament loading unsuccessful), Online Solution Does Not Work, Material Station Makes Grinding Noises

I have had an S5 for a few months. Today, the printer raised an ER54 error, and it cannot load any filament for material two from any bay in the material station. The printer can pull a short bit of filament from the roll before I hear grinding noises, and then it stops. The Bowden tubes for material two that I can see are empty, so it seems something is wrong inside the material station away from my reach. I tried pushing the filament myself, and it did not go through. The online solution for ER54 (link) is not helpful.

 

Is this something I can fix myself, or do I need to contact my reseller?

Update: The instructions for removing broken PVA from the Material Station (link) did not work. The printer did not indicate that a filament blackage was detected.

    • 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
