print head issue

Posted · print head issue

Good Day all, 


Recently, my 3d printer (UM S5) is not working properly. 

First : I did manual leveling many times but it shows me an error massage due to unrealistic leveling and I cannot print

Second : The print head when moving in x-axis towards the door of the printer it hit the frame of the machine , I think it exceeds the stop point.

    I know when updating to the one before latest firmware a lot of user had this,

    For me the issue was it was loosing its lever location for the nozzle selection.


    try if you can update the firmware (a fix was released quickly after)

    check if the right nozzle is down, and calibrate the liftswitch then try again.
