Power supply and heated bed

Recommended Posts

Hello,

My problem is the following one :

I had the same problem than the one describe here : http://umforum.ultimaker.com/index.php?/topic/3735-a-fix-for-ultimaker-2-heated-bed-not-working/

Which is that the heat bed was not working due to loose cable.

So I opened the printer, I fixed the problem, I tested the heating without re-assembling everything, everything worked. I switched off, unplugged the power supply, did the re-assembly and then no power coming to the 3D printer. :???:

As we have two ultimaker 2, I connected the other power supply on the printer with the heater bed disconnected (cause it seemed to be the problem) and it worked.

To sum up :

- the power supply is dead, do you know a way to fix it ? Otherwise I will just buy a new one

- the cause of the dead power supply seems to be the heater bed. Do you know a way to test it ?

Thank you in advance for your help

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
