My UM2  displays the following error message Z screw stuck

However the bill played moves freely by hand but the Um2 is not able to lower the built played even when requested through the advanced menu when I pressed the lower button it just brings the bill plate further up

    Can you move it by turning the screw by hand (with printer shut down)?

    If yes lift it up by hand and check if the z switch can be actived (you can find it inside the printer underneath the build plate (when it sits at the bottom). At the backside, there is a hole.

    The build plate has a screw underneath that goes in that hole to activate the z switch.

    You can try to click it with a screw driver

    Maybe some plastic is stuck in there
