I'm trying to install a BLTouch probe. I have an Ender 3 Pro with 4.2.2 board and I’m trying to connect a BLTouch 3.1 to it. I've bought a generic (but authentic) BLTouch instead of a Creality kit. I've plugged the 3-pin connector into the correct slots on the board (didn't have to rewire, pins seem to be in correct order), but I'm trying to connect the 2-pin connector to the Z-stop connector.
Wiring seems to be in order (although I'm not an expert), when I turn on the printer, the BLTouch flashes and deploys twice but when I try to autohome or level or deploy it through options, menu probe autohomes X and Y axis, but when it comes to the Z axis, the probe doesn’t deploy and hotend simply crashes into the bed.
I've followed this video when I was compiling firmware (I tried both the normal Marlin build and the nightly release).
My configuration files can be found here. If someone would be willing to take a look.
E.g. from my configuration (
/** * Enable this option for a probe connected to the Z-MIN pin. * The probe replaces the Z-MIN endstop and is used for Z homing. * (Automatically enables USE_PROBE_FOR_Z_HOMING.) */ //#define Z_MIN_PROBE_USES_Z_MIN_ENDSTOP_PIN // Force the use of the probe for Z-axis homing #define USE_PROBE_FOR_Z_HOMING
My guess is that I have to force the firmware to somehow recognize the correct signal pin, but then again, I'm out of my depth. I've seen this exact problem mentioned in many places all over the internet but never with a solution attached.
