Printer does not home anymore

Please help me!

When homed manually and start printing, everything works fine, after printing the head moves left but not back.

When I try to home from the menu the head actually move short steps forward.

When pausing and continuing it resumes printing on completely wrong coordinates.

How on earth did this happen? Does anyone know how to solve this?

    Sounds like you have a problem with you limit switch. It must think that the switch is being pressed in. Toggle the switch with your finger and listen and feel for a "click"

    If it does not click then you have a faulty switch and will need replacing. If it does click you need to check the wiring, make sure it hasn't worn though or shorted somewhere. You may need to unplug it and check it with a meter to see if it giving an open / closed action when pressed.

    If you download the ultimaker app there is a section for broken x / y switches under trouble shooting. Or you can look Here

        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.
