Changing filament during print

I have installed filament sensor in my Mini Prusa. I tried to print LCD back cover and ended with 80%. My sensor has detected end of filament and I purged remaining 50 cm of filament. However when I tried to push/load new filament, it did not load into Extruder/ heatbed fully.

So when I resumed printing it started to print with no filement heated. I need to stop this print unfinished and run calibration mode.

Did anybody knows how to fix problem with filament not getting to the extruder at exact position. I did not set anything yet to adjust it.

Thank you in advanced.

See this thread:

It works very well for me now with firmware 4.1.0. It provides a "retry" button if the filament is not loaded correctly.
