Firmware update stuck


Recommended Posts

Posted · Firmware update stuck

I am trying to update the firmware for my Ultimaker S5, there are 2 available (6.5.3 & 7.0.2) I assume both need to be updated? I have began the update for 6.5.3 via USB stick and initially all seemed to be going well but the screen has been displaying ULTIMAKER for the last two ours and no other info or change. Is this correct? How long should the average update take? if it has frozen, what can I do to recover it?

    It's usually about 5 minutes maximum between when it at least shows a change in progress on the screen.


    If you power cycle it should continue trying where it left off.  That works about 70% of the time.  Or power cycling every 10 minutes up to 3 times.


    If that doesn't fix things and your printer is still under warranty call your reseller asap.  Even if it's out of warranty they will give you the official unbricking procedure which involves getting under the printer where there are dangerous voltages so there are special instructions in a pdf they can send you.


    If THAT doesn't work then it's time to go to this website:  gr5.org/unbricking/

        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.
