Posted on March 09 2021
Before printing, you may need to check the status of your Sonic Mini 4K's LCD screen. This is to ensure that both the UV lights and the 6.1” Mono-LCD screen are functioning properly. We will guide you through the steps of performing an LCD test and how you can read it:
*Caution! DO NOT look directly into the light. Improper exposure to UV light may cause painful eye and/or skin injuries.
Step 1: LCD TEST
On the touch panel, click TOOLS, then click LCD TEST:
1. A white rectangle with black sides will appear on the touch panel.
2. On the LCD screen, a 10.5 cm x 6 cm bright blue square will appear.
Run this test to make sure that the image shown on the LCD screen matches the one shown on the touch panel.
Step 2: VAT CLEANING
Click TOOLS, then click VAT CLEANING.
1. On the touch panel, a white rectangle will appear.
2. On the LCD screen, a 13.5 cm x 7.5 cm bright blue square will appear. Run this test to make sure the UV lights are distributed evenly.
