PINDA Probe Problem
OK ... I did a PINDA probe test that I saw on a post here ... put metal object in front of probe to see if it returns value of 1
IT is returning value
Maybe recalibrate Z-Axis somehow ...
When printer does bed test at beginning of print it takes nozzle right down to the bed.
have you tried holding the metal against the pinda with one hand, and wiggling the cable bundle behind the X carriage, with the other whilst watching the LCD Sensor Status screen, see if there is an intermittent break in the Pinda wire?
If the status changes when you wiggle the cable, it is likely that one of the wires has gone faulty.
I have replaced a couple of pinda wires...
if you have a broken Pinda wire, you can make a repair like this.
Thank You for reply
Just daw that on YouTube ... stays 1 as I wiggled cables.
Had some little buildup on side "cone" of nozzle. Gently cleaned it off.
PINDA seems in good shape.
Would I do something like a recalibration of Z axis ?
Would I reboot to factory setting and go through wizard ?
Thank you SO much for your help !!!
Re-adjusted the PINDA height ... and it is running.
Feel like a panic baby 🙂
Thanks for helping me learn this !!!
I had to replace these on two fo my printers. I order them from Prusa. I am very happy with ordering them from Prusa but decided to give another option a try. I was apprehensive after seeing one bad review. It worked perfectly. I am very happy. It is a drop-in replacement and It seems better constructed. P.I.N.D.A. V2 for Prusa by POLISI3D is working better than expected and they ship very fast for US customers.
