anyone know how to turn off the beep made when the printer is starting up and ready. Or reduce its volume?

I work in a very quite office and its starting to drive the others crazy, me too...

Open up the base cover and put a bit of tape over the black speaker next to the CPU.

Great news!

When I tape up the speaker on the mobo I get a drowning cat sound instead of a beep.

I have found that a bit of tape really only changes the pitch... but the volume is identical.

A much better solution (and makes the speaker practically inaudible) is to use a small bit of foam or sponge (and I mean tiny) and just wedge it ever so slightly into the hole.

Buzzers like this one work by forcing air through the hole and surround. If you cover the hole, the air still flows out of the surround, only changing the tone. Foam allows air through, but disrupts the flow - effectively muffling the speaker.

It works so well, you actually have to pay attention to when it is ready!

I used a small speaker cover to reduce the volume. I uploaded the stl file to thingiverse in case anyone else wants to do the same.

There is no off, but in the new ROM the beeps are shorter. Best to open up the 3D printer and silence the speaker manually if you need it silenced.

I finally upgraded Rom to latest last night and am so darn pleased with the shorter 'beeeeps!'! Thank you, thank you for that! :). I had already printed the little speaker cap and put that on, but this is really nice now having it both quieter and now much shorter. It is acceptable now for the whole family.

This worked the best for me, screwing it, with the oportunity to really adjust it as if it was a real adjustment button... :)
