Ultimaker S5 Camera Color Distortion?


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Ultimaker S5 Camera Color Distortion?

Our Ultimaker S5 camera is displaying some sort of color distortion when viewed during online monitoring.


Pro bundle, 6.5.3 Firmware. Have powered off and on, but have not done a factory reset yet. (Will maybe try this tomorrow and update my post.)


Has anyone encountered this?

    I have never had that on mine, but i would like you have already said try a factory reset. You can also force the printer to install the firmware update again, just in case something went wrong with the update, just do that via the printers menu.

    So this is still an issue. Factory reset, firmware upgrades have not fixed the problem.


    We have needed to have the printer running constantly, and other than this camera distortion, it's working fine. So adressing this issue took a back burner.


    Has anyone else had this issue? Is there anyone from @Ultimaker who can chime in?

        (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.
