I just assembled my MK3S+ kit, while going through the initial setup wizard I encountered a XYZ Calibration error. 

All of the other test have passed, the belts are tight, everything looks correct. Verified the PINDA probe setting. 

The error is "XYZ calibration failed. Please consult the manual"

Not sure what to do next. Any help is appreciated.

Yes, I tried most of these. I haven't taken apart the Extruder yet. I did the PINDA Sensor test it passed.

All of the axis move freely and to the limits. I ran the Z axis all the way up and measured to the support bracket, it is the same on both sides. 

I decided to ignore it for now. Running a Benchy, working fine so far. I know I need to find a solution to this, I will keep working on it.

Thanks for the reply.

Could just be an initial error, has it done it again since?

If it has ran OK since passing the test it might be OK.

Let us know how it goes, best of luck.

Tank you very much!...

Update:

So found this article    https://help.prusa3d.com/en/article/nozzle-crashed-into-the-heatbed_112003

That recommended using the thin end of the zip-tie to align the PINDA probe instead of the middle. That seem to make the difference. I measured the tie with my caliber the middle is 1.13mm the end is .86mm. So the PINDA probe was to high by .27mm. 

The Calibration completed and I got a good First Layer test. On to printing...

Thanks to everyone who read and those who posted replies.
