S3 Leveling Sensor Issues

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · S3 Leveling Sensor Issues

I have a relatively new S3 with an erratic levelling sensor.


Firmware 7.0.3 is installed which now has a "Leveling sensor test" in the diagnostics menu.

On completion of the test the screen displays a "Noise" reading does anyone know what is a good noise reading and what is a bad noise reading. Mine randomly varies between 4.9 and 23.8 !


Saving log files to USB reveals  a ????_sensor_reset.log !

Is there an  explanation for the data in this log ?

What is a good/bad Capacitive_baseline ?



Thanks in advance for any help.

    If the printer reports "interference on the signal" consistently and you encounter frequent issues with active leveling, please contact support.

    If you require further support, please contact us by submitting a ticket.

    Please ensure to include the error number (ERXX) and your printer's log files.
