Are you sure you have put the right head in for the machine - if you haven't then this can cause overheating
You can email me the serial number and I can look at the history and age. It sounds like you need to find the cause first before replacing parts.Hey everybody - I'm back with a new(ish) fault.
After repairing the F6 fuse issue I had a problem with a short or something burning one of the printhead cables and damaging the printhead connector
Putting this down to a faulty cable, I replaced all three of the cables and the head and the machine has been printing beautifully for the last few days. However, today I noticed the same burning smell coming from around the carriage and the machine immediately threw the 0001001B overheat error.
I assumed that the same had happened to the replacement printhead, but this time no burnt cable or connector, just a funky smelling head.
Now, this machine has really been giving me a headache since purchasing it, and the last few days of print is all I've had out of it since buying it a couple of months ago.
The question is - what do I do from here? There is obviously a fault causing the overheating/burnout of the head. Do I replace everything electrical head back, or just bin it?
Obviously I don't want to just throw a new head in there and have the same problem - I can't afford another £800 on a head just to kill it. Should I replace the sub board, and mainboard along with ajoining cables? Will a new mainboard be OK, or are the Resolute ones reflashed?
As I'm writing this, I can't see that I've got much choice but to replace the lot, or bin it.
I'd love to hear someone's feedback, or ideas on how I can troubleshoot this problem!
Sorry for the long post, I'm just at my wits end with this machine now :/
Thanks for the reply, I've just sent you an email through this site.
