Our school got a used Form 1+ donated to us. When I power it on, there is a loud buzzing noise as the display on the printer says, “Moving tank up…”. Then it clicks a few times and stops. When I try to print from PreForm, it begins communicating with the printer. The printer starts buzzing again, and then the print dialog says, Printer is busy, your printer is not available for printing. Then the process fails with an unknown error.
Upgraded the firmware.
Power cycled the Form 1+ multiple times.
Power cycled/rebooted the PC multiple times.
Tried different USB ports.
Tried 2 completely different PCs.
Edit: Printer display says “Ready to print.” before I try to print.
Sounds like you may need to replace the servo motor for the peel mechanism for the tank. Might want to contact support and see if you can get the part from them. I don’t believe putting the part in is all that big a deal.
