Ultimaker original seems dead only extruder is heating

Recommended Posts

After installing cura 14.9 and downloading the new fermware, it was impossible to connect my ultimaker Original to cura.

After i asked for a Ticket with Ultimaker, I got some suggestions.

first I had to disconnect the arduino and try to download the firmware again. this worked. Than they suggested that the motherboard was defect. I ordered a new motherboard and in the mean time I installed the controler unit from UM.

ThanI installed cura 14.9 and the firmware again.

Now I The printer could be connected to Cura.

Than I started the printing but, now only the extruder is heating. Not my heated bed and even not the steppen motors are moving.

It seams that everything els is dead.

I tried the an old version of cura (12.8, which I sometimes still used when newer versions of cura made problems) This version connected but I could not give a print order.

Normaly when I connected to that version. I heard a click in the printer and got a lot of information on the screen. Now there is no click and instead of readable information ther is a lot of "chinees" on the screen.

So I decided to try to print with the control unit.

The same result: Only the extruder is heating. The controllerschreen gives the, in cura determined temperature but the heating do not start. I also cannot move the

z,y and x axes.

Please help

    • 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.
