Up Mini Crashed & now Not being recognized by PC

Post by 85miles » Sun Jan 11, 2015 7:06 pm

Hey
I have 2 - Up! Mini's, one is brand new (bought as refurbished had broken power switch which I repaired and worked fine since)
Yesterday the software froze up and crashed. After that happened my PC will not even pick up the Up! Mini (but still picks up my old one).
I tried a different pc and it is not being picked up by that computer either. The printer turns on fine and does its little calibration at start, but plug in a USB and nothing. Im thinking it could be a hardware issue on my Up! ?

Any ideas on what to check? Do you think its the main control board?

thanks

From what you are describing it sounds like a bad CPU board which is very expensive. Unless the printer is still under the 12 month warranty, you would be better off purchasing a brand new printer.

Well that sucks, guess im better off putting a arduino or reprap controller in there, $1100 vs <$100

i know they don't have a crazy markup on their parts, holy crap. Guess Im done with Up! And pp3dp products! Junk.

Copied and pasted from the email I got from Tiertime
mainboard is $253, while the price of CPU is $385.
Their prices have gone down overall but still way out there.

Perhabs you have a problem with the micro-sd card, which is on the mainboard.

Take it out and put it into a pc. There should be no files, but the stick should be avaiable like a fresh formated driver.

Well it would be nice if they would update the prices of these items on their web store, of course =)
