Difference between detected height of both PrintCores exceeds realistic values

Hi guys, I have this error "Difference between detected height of both PrintCores exceeds realistic values", I have noticed that the print core 2 does not go up in the active leveling, and when I print or try to do some other maintenance thing, it does not go up automatically as it should, any solution?

    Does the lift switch work?  On the right side of the head pull that little lever towards and push it away and the core should go up and down.  Does it?

     

    If it does then you probably have to calibrate the lift switch.  There is an extremely simple procedure to do this in the menu system on the S5[edit: yes on the UM3 as well].  Under maintenance maybe.

    This answer is also valid for the UM3 (as it's mentioned in the tags, I suppose the problem is with an UM3).

    For detailed instruction see:

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        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.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
