Hello,

I am unsure if this is the correct place to post about firmware, please move it if needs be.

I upgraded my ultimaker 2 shortly after the newest firmware was released and all was well, but in the last two or so weeks it has started to randomly lockup.

Either

It continues printing, but nothing changes on screen, if you use the scroll the wheel, it does not move between the options and it does not count down.

This can happen undisturbed or when tweaking settings

Or

It stops printing mid-way and just oozes, fans and heaters remain on and the screen garbles partially. It does not respond

This one happened about 10 mins ago

eg.

20150326 001

 

Both cases you have to switch it off and on again before it becomes responsive

I had reflashed the firmware twice from two different computers and I get the same problem.

It’s not all the time and can happen on quick prints or large prints.

I have an ultimaker 2

Debian 7/ Windows 7

Cura 15.02.1

Print from SD card

Both PLA/ABS

No mods

Card is also good and files end correctly

Thankx in advanced

    If you install the previous version of the firmware, will the printer behave or do you still have problems. I wonder if you may have some loose connections to the board, and this would be a way to test it, so that you are really sure you can blame it on the firmware.

    So to update where I am.

    I downgraded the firmware to 14.12 (the previous one) which had worked well for me.

    The the hot end became blocked with the first print back at that firmware version and as I removed it to clean everything up (the atomic method didn't work) and I broke it.

    After much hunting I finally got a replacement hot end this morning and when I start my first print, the printer locks up, just like the picture above, reset it and calibrate everything again and right now its printing.

    Ok, then I'd say it is a hardware problem. Either a connection problem like Personal Drones suggested (maybe a wire got loose somewhere) or the board just broke.

    You could take off the board cover at the bottom and inspect it for obvious problems.

      • Here it is. The new UltiMaker S7
        The UltiMaker S7 is built on the success of the UltiMaker S5 and its design decisions were heavily based on feedback from customers.
         
         
        So what’s new?
        The obvious change is the S7’s height. It now includes an integrated Air Manager. This filters the exhaust air of every print and also improves build temperature stability. To further enclose the build chamber the S7 only has one magnetically latched door.
         
        The build stack has also been completely redesigned. A PEI-coated flexible steel build plate makes a big difference to productivity. Not only do you not need tools to pop a printed part off. But we also don’t recommend using or adhesion structures for UltiMaker materials (except PC, because...it’s PC). Along with that, 4 pins and 25 magnets make it easy to replace the flex plate perfectly – even with one hand.
         
        The re-engineered print head has an inductive sensor which reduces noise when probing the build plate. This effectively makes it much harder to not achieve a perfect first layer, improving overall print success. We also reversed the front fan direction (fewer plastic hairs, less maintenance), made the print core door magnets stronger, and add a sensor that helps avoid flooding.
         

         
        The UltiMaker S7 also includes quality of life improvements:
        Reliable bed tilt compensation (no more thumbscrews) 2.4 and 5 GHz Wi-Fi A 1080p camera (mounted higher for a better view) Compatibility with 280+ Marketplace materials Compatibility with S5 project files (no reslicing needed) And a whole lot more  
        Curious to see the S7 in action?
        We’re hosting a free tech demo on February 7.
        It will be live and you can ask any questions to our CTO, Miguel Calvo.

      • UltiMaker Cura 5.3.0-Alpha 🎄 Tree Support Spotlight 🎄
        Are you a fan of tree support, but dislike the removal process and the amount of filament it uses? Then we would like to invite you to try this special release of UltiMaker Cura. Brought to you by our special community contributor @thomasrahm
         
        We generated a special version of Cura 5.2 called 5.3.0 Alpha + Xmas. The only changes we introduced compared to UltiMaker Cura 5.2.1 are those which are needed for the new supports. So keep in mind, this is not a sneak peek for Cura 5.3 (there are some really cool new features coming up) but a spotlight release highlighting this new version of tree supports.
