[Solved] Unable to calibrate after error "z-levelling enforced"
Unable to calibrate after error "z-levelling enforced"
A few weeks ago I received an error message 'Z-level enforced'. After the printer tried a couple of times to calibrate the z-level I gave up and did a calibrate XYZ which solved the problem and I could print again. Yesterday the same error message appeared again (if I am not mistaken both times it happened after I had not used the printer for at least a week, in case this should play a role).
This time I used the Wizard and received an error message about the 'X-axis length'. The hotend moved to the right but stopped about 5cm from the right endstop, nothing blocked it. I switched off the printer, moved the hotend all the way to the right. Started calibrating again. X-axis length error, this time the hotend stopped a few cm before it reached the left endstop.
I chatted with a support rep and tried a few suggestions (tighten belt, auto home from the menu) but nothing solved the problem. Due to an appointment I had to stop the chat.
I have made 3 videos that might help in pinpointing the problem.
This video shows the X-Axis length error:
this one the auto home attempt:
and this one the Z-clibration attempt:
The thermistor cable (temp solution) that can be seen does not interfere with any movements of the hot end.
RE: Unable to calibrate after error "z-levelling enforced"
I just did a 3rd factory reset (All Data) and to my big surprise that seems to have done it, at least for the moment, who knows. I can print again.
It does not explain the Z-level enforced message, but hopefully that won't show up again.
