I don't know much about this but I think you have to modify one pin in the cable to get this to work. Or maybe one of the cables has to be reversed. Hopefully someone will reply here but this is the kind of ancient question that the really old timers know the answer to and they are over on google groups:

    You might want to expand on exactly which controller you have...

    Basically anything different from the UltiController will need a firmware recompile.

    In case your controller is a "RepRapDiscount Full Graphic Smart Controller" you can build and get a firmware there.

    As gr5 is pointing out, some of these boards have the cables/sockets reversed, there is a thread about that here.

    It is indeed the "RepRapDiscount Full Graphic Smart Controller" -- it is written on it, so you can definitely generate a firmware from there.


    I have tested the link, but should see more of this, apparently pigeons this does not


    I am not sure to understand this :unsure:

    I am from Denmark, and use google translate, the only thing that happens is that the screen blinks and says beep approximately once per second

    No problem, Google translate is sometime funny ;)

    2 things:

    1. You must use a custom firmware (link above) -- it will not work with the original Ultimaker firmware

    2. if you have the right firmware and it still does not work, then the cables might be wrong (as mentioned in the other post I linked above)

    Last but not least do not push the 'Stop' button on the controller, as it will generate a short-circuit on the main Ultimaker board.

    It works, thanks for the help, it turned out that it was multi cables that was the problem

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
