S5 Pro Multiple Different Communication Errors

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · S5 Pro Multiple Different Communication Errors

Right at the start of a print, it threw an ER34. I had to replace something in the print head a while ago, so I figured maybe I just didn't reseat the wire well enough. But no, after rebooting it keeps throwing various other seemingly unrelated communication errors, like ER35 and ER72.


What is happening here?

    Update: where does this print head wire actually go? I thought maybe it got pulled or something, so I gently pushed it back into this hole, and now it's printing normally. Could it have come loose from wherever this leads? If that was it, would that explain all the other weird communication errors that seem unrelated to the printhead?

    This cable goes to the main board, in the bottom of the printer. ER34 and ER35 are I2C communication errors, and there is indeed I2C comms over that cable. To gain some extra confidence in the hypothesis that the cable is loose on the bottom side, you could start a print job and wiggle the cable a little back and forth. that shouldn't give an error.

    If you are comfortable with it, you can take a look behind the bottom cover. Depending on the version of the S5 you have, the bottom may be screwed with safety torx screws. Please make sure you remove the power cable before opening the cover, mains voltage is accessible behind the cover. Protect the machine from ESD by taking the right precautions (ground yourself when touching any electronics)

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3 stable released
        In this stable release, Cura 5.3 achieves yet another huge leap forward in 3D printing thanks to material interlocking! As well as introducing an expanded recommended print settings menu and lots of print quality improvements. Not to mention, a whole bunch of new printer profiles for non-UltiMaker printers!

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.

        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
