If your printer is a regular UP model, check the cable under the plate that is looped in the channel, they tend to fail due to the tight bending. I replaced mine with an external version and it has been fine ever since. My mod is somewhere on this forum, if you cannot find it I will search when I hsve more time.
cheers

The box will not wait for heat bed to reach a certain temp. It will start printing right after the data transfer is finished.
If you want to make sure it start printing with a hot bed, use preheat 15 min in 3d print menu or preheat 1 hr in maintenance panel.

Cheers
