Leveling Problems

Recommended Posts

Posted · Leveling Problems


My S3 had been working flawlessly for months, now leveling fails after probing the right hand side of the plate only (fails on the 7th touch).

I've checked all the known issues, updated firmware, manual leveled, chacked plate height etc Sensor diagnostics on latest firmware results in a figure

of 1.6, in the stable release it indicated sensor is ok. I'm an electronics tech, I've checked relevant connections and there's no obvious board damage.

I've also tried leveling with the fan disconnected. 

I dont have a reseller near me so its a real pain. Is it worth just replacing the sensor ??
