Posted · Ultimaker 2+ Firmware Update Failed - Bricked and Unresponsive - Please Help

Trying to get some help with my Ultimaker 2+. I was performing a standard firmware update through Cura when the software failed and lost connection to the printer. The screen on the printer went blank and I cant get it to come back on. When I connect the USB cable the computer does not recognize the printer. I took off the cover to the main board and checked that there is still a light so I have power.

 

It seems like the board firmware at this point is corrupted and I have a bricked printer. Has anyone had luck reflashing the main board with fresh firmware? I am wondering if I were to use some other program than Cura, maybe Arduino..., if that would do the trick? Any ideas?

    Thanks. I found a helpful youtube video about how to do it. You cant use Arduino IDE directly, you have to do it through the command line. worked well and I am back up and running
