Ultimaker2 LCD screen not working

Recommended Posts

I just received my Ultimaker 2,


Very excited, I just unboxed plugged everything in and .........

-No display on LCD screen

-rotating click wheel or pressing click wheel does not make noise or cause any movement of the head.

-I thoght perhaps the connector for the LCD screen may not be plugged in good, however I cannot access the screw heads as the build plate is at the bottom with the glass panel underneath wrapped in bubble wrap.

Just turn the z-screw by hand, or grab the print bed at the sides, towards the back, and pull it upwards (with the power off). Then you can take the glass plate out, and undo the screws to remove the covers, and check the two ribbon cables that run from the main board to the smaller electronics board behind the display. Each cover is held on by two nuts and screws.

      The goal of this contest is to design a set of people figurines that could be used in such a project to make an area, office or mall seem populated. 
      Think of different types of people in different environments, like walking people, people standing still, working people, and both men and women.

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
