Print core not detected


Recommended Posts

Posted · Print core not detected

Hi everyone,


The print head in my ultimaker S5 flooded a few weeks ago. After finally getting all of the plastic out and turning the printer on, I kept on getting a max temp error for print core 1. I took out the print core, cleaned the sensors, and put it back in - but now my printer won’t even recognize that there’s a print core in there (just says “no print core”). When I took it out, I noticed there were some scratches on the sensors (after the head flooded, it took some wiggling to get the core out - I’m guessing they got scratched then). Any recommendations on what to do?

 Thanks for the help!

    I would load print core 2 in print head slot 1, then you can see if there is also a demolition in the print head. If there is no demolition I would buy a new printcore.  I do not know any method to repair this. Do not throw away your old printcore, sometimes it is good to have some spare parts like a nozzle.

      • 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
