how to skip active levelling phase of UM S5


Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · how to skip active levelling phase of UM S5

i am servicing a S5 3d printer for a client and have got to the point of doing a test print, but it keeps saying it cannot do the active levelling and cancels the print, i would like to bypass the auto levelling to do the print to check of things are working now. i know this is a new problem it has now but i would like to confirm the other fixes by doing a test print first.


on a related note, turns out the hotend fan and the capacitive sensor plugs had been previously swapped with eachother. what are the chances the capacitive sensor has been damaged by being plugged into the heatsink fan port?

    @bacon please don't double post single issues across multiple threads.

    Disabling Active leveling via traditional means is not supported or even recommended.


    Also the sensor board and print head pcbs are likely both damaged.
