S5 Offset Probe Fail

Recommended Posts

I am getting a persistent failure. "Nozzle Offset Probe Failed". This was happening occasionally right out of the box, but was resolved with either a bed leveling or a hard reset. Now it is constant and I can't print! I have replaced both Heads and did a Factory Reset.....

 

Any help would be appreciated.

I had this error two times and each time there was still a rest of the filament on the nozzle or on the glass plate. If you've already replaced the PrintCores, check if there's still something sticking to the glass in the right back quarter.

I think it is the actual probe itself, as the fault often happens before the glass is within 10mm of the nozzle. I am going to try a Firmware update, and then throw in the towel till the support staff gets in on Monday. To say the least I am a bit bummed as it is a brand new machine, I will say though, when running, she is a beauty....

You can also check the cables of the capacity board. When you open the fan door of the print head, you see the board in the back. Maybe there is an issue with the cables.

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
