Hello everyone and lets hope for today to be a good day!
Unfortunately, i require your assistence today as my mischievous little shite of a sensor!
I have the 5 wires coming FROM the sensor TO the printer mobo which is correctly wired according to the matching colours on each cable. I have double checked with the guide i was following when installing the sensor. Just to make sure i didnt follow the ALDI guide. The biggest reason id like to get it to work is that i have NOT a single print with the printer since i first started dabbing with the sensor.
Practically the sensor itself is brand new because i ordered it, tried to install but didnt get it to work and in the middle of the installation aswell as a print. Kinda paused the 3D printing hobby because life needed some focus. I then moved to a new house which had me pack the printer down into a storage box so i didnt need even to loose a single screw… Fast forward 2-3 years and here and been for the last couple of days trying to stand on my own feet. Still with the old Smart v2.0 sensor thats… well practically new, since i havent even done a single print with the sensor as a bed leveler.
Maybe i were unlucky and just got a defect one?
Checked the 5 cables from sensor that then travels to the printer motherboard.
Im must be colourblind or nothing is wrong with it (pretty sure im not colourblind tho)
As soon as i start the printer the probe blinks only red.
In the top middle of the LCD screen, I can see picture of a BLTouch probe, it is grey which im not sure is correct. Also When i go into Tuning>Sensor the ONLY thing that makes the probe even react is the Reset button. If i press Deploy, Stow or Self-Test nothing happens and the probe continues to blink
The Z-height menu does work tho
