Original shorting out

Posted · Original shorting out

Hey guys,

I've fired up my original ultimaker for the first time in a few months and its begun to have problems.

When I run the autohome function it moves fine and does everything's as its supposed too. however when I try to print/ use the bed leveling system, it seems to have problems with its power.

The screen goes darker, and the machine wont operate, however every 2 or 3 seconds it suddenly flashes up (I'm guessing it builds a charge up) and the machine will operate, however it only lasts a second and then returns to becoming dark.

because of this the scale seems to go down and the print doesn't get a clear feed as both the nozzle wont move or the extrusion gear.

Any help would be great thanks :)

Jack.

      • 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.
