Another BL Touch Problem
Just fitted my new antlabs bl touch. updated firmwear and have the correct auto level screen. However when I power printer up, bl touch probes twice red light stays on. go to level screen. bed drops down about 10mm hotend moves to corner then moves to just off center. bed drops down 10mm again. bl touch probe moves twice and red light goes out. then thats it. press measure nothing happens. press z stop up and down arrows. nothing. Any thoughts as to what I have doing wrong?
@CrankyEv nice, happy to hear, hope it works out.
have no experience myself- i would hope the board comes with some explanation included.
i've seen youtubes of mainboard swaps like these...
...where all they did was swap boards and did nothing firmware/software related at all.
just turned on and they work.
those are for ender-5 plus, but maybe it's useful to see how they go about swapping all the wires, and i found their videos to be helpful in general (unsolicited plug). if you want thorough and methodical how-to's, see more of kersey fabrications.
i would not try to flash a firmware before seeing if you can get one that's preloaded running first.
hopefully it's that easy. otherwise maybe somebody who's tried it can chime in.
@telephasic Thanks. ordered one. question is do i just download the firmware file from creality and flash it to the board and it'll work or do i need config files and other files as well?
Thanks. i'll send them an email and ask if they deliver to australia. weird thing on their website is that they have an "in stock in australia" page, however all items are listed in U.S currency with send from overseas locations.
Crappy deal man.
Suggest asking around a bit before giving up.
Maybe ask at https://www.creality3dofficial.com
Or at vip mall. Don't get excited about the prices- they are wholesale. https://vip.creality.com/en/goods-detail/25
reading thru other posts im guessing its i need to program the g code into the firmware. tried connecting the printer via usb and fried the main board. i see creality dont sell new main boards for the ender 6 and cant get after market boards delivered here to australia, so i guess it will going back in the box and into the land fill. ill just go and buy a new printer from a reputable company.
