Form1 doesn't boot

Hello. I got form1 from second hand. First time im using a formlabs product. When i plugged it screen shows “Ready to print”. Installed preform 2.20 but program was saying machine is busy while screen says ready. I can not click the fine tuning option only able to update firmware. When i click that form1 just closed itself. Unplugged itself from my pc. And i can’t boot now. Just like this topics;

I do not know what to do please help!

Have you tried putting the Form1 into DFU mode manually?
Also check your firmeware version (see point 5 in the link above), mine shows 1.44.

I’ve had this come up a few times in the past, and usually a reboot of the computer fixes the problem.

On the other hand, while version 2.20 is supposed to be the last version to support the Form 1, I had problems with it seeing the printer sometimes, and I went back to v2.19.3, which is what I currently use.

Try that version first. @MattiaMercante keeps a repository of all the previous Preform versions. You can download it here:

These dubious posts about foreign topics are piling up in forums. Maybe these are bots that might want to interact with carbon units, or want to test us, the devil knows what they have in mind.

Banishing, deleting or ignoring seems to me the best way to deal with this. It’s best to put some good bots on it. Bot ban bot :slight_smile:

Hi everyone, I have a form 1+ firmware 1.4. And preform version 2.20.0

after several successful printing.

I can no longer load or print, and the printer is (on hold). and the bug boot process after a few seconds, sending the print file to the machine also stops after a few seconds.

I followed the steps for updating the machine (firmware). reinstall Preform more than twice.
I also reset the Windows 10.
please enlighten me.
