This solution provides the information needed on how to upload Creatr HS software image on an SD card.
When would you use this? Rarely, you may experience a issue with your Stand Alone display. Inside your printer, you have roughly five electronics boards, one of which is the Olimex board located directly under the Motherboard. The Olimex mainly deals with providing you an image on your HS's Stand Alone display. There is an SD memory card located in a slot at the back of the Olimex board that contains a file used to make the display work properly.
Now, the Olimex board has 2 LED lights (green and red); the red indicates that the Olimex board is receiving power, and the green indicates that the SD card is being read. We have provided this link to help get you on your way to troubleshooting the issue if your display does not work and you find that the green LED light is NOT illuminated when the printer is powered up.
