Ender 5 pro V4.2.2 BlTouch installation question



  • Hello,
    Do you have clear instruction on how to connect the BLtouch to Ender 5 pro with v4.2.2 board?
    Its not clear if I need to use the Pinboard A or not with this board?

    In your video “Ender 5 Pro BL-touch installation tutorial” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jmu5Fh_nPtw&t=35s) the board is V1.1.5
    In this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neS7lB7fCww&t=710s by "Teaching Tech" the board is V4.2.X however the wiring are not the same as on BLTouch I have. In the one I have the Blue cord is in the middle and not on the side

    What is the correct way to install the BLtouch on V4.2.2 board?
    Please advise,
    Thanks,
    David



  • @DennisSamson I have resolved this issue by bending the three pins for the small black connector from the BLTouch cable. I bent them 90 degrees so the connector is parallel to the board, and this provides sufficient space for the fan.



  • This video is not correct for the Ender 5Pro with V4.2.2 motherboard. If the pinboard A is used, the fan on the motherboard cover interferes with the cable to the display box.

    Please provide a correct connection diagram For the BL touch wiring that is supplied in the Creality BL Touch kit.



  • @admin any answer on this issue? it seems that no matter what I do the printer does not save the z offset if the printer is turned off.
    It seems that the printer doesn't save the Zoffset into the printer EEPROM. this a technical issue and might point to a defaulty main board. can you please ask your engineers what to do to resolve this. every time i want to print after setting the printer Z offset and turning off the printer for a few hours the print start way far from the bed. i have to set the Z offset over and over again to get the print after turning the printer off and sometimes even between prints.
    Please help!!!!



  • Dear @davidzohar

    I have sent your worries to our engineer to confirm, Please Don’t worry, the Z-axis height is much larger than the designed printing height, so it won’t hit the top.



  • @admin I have fully followed the instruction in the video, offset the z measurement.
    i noticed that the movement on the z axes can be more then the limits, this can damage the printer.
    is there a way to limit the endstops in the software? I think I saw something in Marlin that the software limits can replace the endpoint switch.
    after all we removed the z end switch and nothing prevent the bed to go up beyond the max point.
    can it be done using the control unit?
    Please advise,
    thanks,
    David



  • @UNKNOW
    Yes, Sir, the mainboard is the same.



  • @admin the youtube video is not a ender 5 pro, how to follow it?
