Printbed not heating anymore


Recommended Posts

Posted · Printbed not heating anymore

Do the servos move? Does the head heat up? If not then ignore everything below:

I had this problem. Very easy to fix. It's usually the connection to the plate - to the bed. It could also be underneath the larger panel of the printer.

Remove the glass (don't cut yourself - use pliers on the clips).

Remove the 3 leveling screws. Remove the 2 screws holding the black wire in the back. Take the bed apart (there maybe be another screw but I don't think so.

Inspect the cable connecion to the board. The larger 2 wires are for the heater. The smaller 2 are for the sensor. Pull gently on the larger wires to see if one is loose. If they seem fine unscrew the 4 wires and remove the heater board and reflow the solder for the two connections for the heater. You need a soldering iron. Put the wires back in and test it just hanging like this. If still broken time to check underneath the UM. Or check the voltage with a voltmeter at this end of the wiring and on the plate.

        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.
