Ultimaker U2+ bed leveling issue

Hi 

I recently brought a second hand U2 that hadn't been used for a while.

Before using it i decided to replace all the belts as they were well past there best and upgrade it it to a U2+.

I followed the instructions for the + upgrade and updated the firmware at the very end.

now when you set up the bed to the print head it fails as it trys to home the bed with a z switch error ER05.

this happens before the bed gets to the switch but to be on the safe side i replaced it anyway.

if i try to level the bed to the heads and drop the bed rather than raise it it will then pass.

the firmware is currently at 3.3.0.

Any ideas please 

 

Thanks Bob

    Which instructions did you follow for the upgrade? Can you post a link to these instructions, or post a list of the modifications you made?

     

    I don't understand your problem description. You describe two situations where the error happens in one situation but not in the other. What is the difference between these two scenario's? 

     

    Did you perhaps replace the Z-motor?

        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...

        New features
         
        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.
