Mastering Printer Maintenance: How to Replace the Touch Screen for Anycubic Photon M3 Plus

What should I do if the touch screen of the resin printer is faulty? In some cases of bumping or contamination, the touch screen may malfunction, making it impossible to interact. In this case, replacing it is a good solution to get your printer back to normal as soon as possible. In this guide, we will walk users through Anycubic Photon M3 Plus’s touchscreen replacement to help you install a new screen, restore interaction, and also allow the printer to work.

Resin printers usually use a touch screen interface to interact with users, allowing users to control the printing process, load 3D models to the printer, monitor printing progress and remaining time, and prompt machine error messages, etc. The touch interface of the resin printer makes it easier and more controllable for users to 3D print, and its interaction is crucial in the printing process. When it doesn't work properly, contact the machine's technical service staff to determine a specific solution.
