Effector z-probe light not flashing

  • Green light for z prob is on but not flashing when bumping it. Using 24v and not using the hotend fan or cooling fan. The board don't need these to work properly correct? Nimble is also installed, pt100, and 24v heater which works. Nimble screws have nylon spacers. I unplugged the 8 pin connector and i get 2.9v-3.0v on the 3.3v and gnd pins. When i plug it in i get 1.3v on the board programming header pins and on the back of the plug solder connections. Should i try to melt fresh solder on the bottom board plug connections. Is my board bad? it is a newer board.

  • Green light stays on when I unplug the six pin harness.

    The sensor part should work with the 6-pin harness not connected. If the green LED is on at full brightness continually, then it sounds like a bad board to me.
