Endstop triggered but carrige doesn't stop

  • I have checked them all with M119 and they all say that they are trigger and I verified that the trigger and the tower match when doing them one at a time. It hits the optical endstop and grinds away until I turn it off. All worked before I removed wires for testing to find a short (hotend heater)

    Where do I go from here?

  • Which endstop?

    Should probably include your M574 and M558 just in case.

  • Y or Beta tower

    ; Endstops
    M574 X2 Y2 Z2 S1 ; Define active high microswitches
    M558 P1 X0 Y0 Z0 H5 F120 T6000 ; Set Z probe type to unmodulated, the axes for which it is used and the probe + travel speeds
    M557 R130 S20 ; Define mesh grid

  • Everything looks good to me.

    I would swap the endstop connections for Y and Z and then home the printer. You can reduce the current for the motors while testing in M906. If it now fails on Z, then you have to have a bad board.

  • LEDs on the board go off when triggered, checked that, trying to go back to the beginning again

  • administrators

    On a delta, failure to stop at one of the endstop switches when homing typically means that the endstop switch connections don't match the motor connections, e.g. the carriage that is driven by the motor that is connected to the Y motor connector hits the switch that is connected to the X endstop input.

  • that was the clue I needed, thanks man!
