Suspected leakage inside the printer


#1

Hello,
We wanted to change our ember projector last week, but on opening the backslide, and removing the projector, we found some sticky liquid on the projector like this :

it is a yellow liquid and smells like oil, so not sure if it is resin that penetrated inside the printer or something else.

Did someone else also come across such a problem?
Is it possible that some kind of oil spillage might have occured inside the printer?
Should we open up the printer further to check for a possible spillage?
Any help would be greatly appreciated! :slight_smile:

Regards,
Sangeetha

I wouldn’t worry about it if your printer is functioning normally. Resin isn’t electrically conductive, so it won’t harm the electronics inside the printer (except in large quantities). There’s not really any oil in the printer to spill, so I’m not sure what it would be.

The printer is working fine, and we cured the yellow fluid, and it hardened :slight_smile:
Although not sure why the resin leaked inside the printer turned yellow
Thank you for your feedback!
