P.I.N.D.A probe placement wrong?

Hello, I recently finished assembling my kit. after the selftest i moved on to calibration. the probe is perfectly aligned with the photo reference and with what the video shows but still the nozzle got so close to the bed that it began to scratch the PEI off and so i shut it down. My assumption is that the probe isn't detecting the proper distance or that it sits to high. however, i have double checked its location. is there a change in the location that it needs to be seated now?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi Eduardo,

I think the best way to solve your problem is to move down the PINDA probe (about 3 or 4 mm) and run the XYZ calibration. Even if the position of the probe is wrong, you're sure not to have collision with the bed. Then during the calibration, look and the distance between the nozzle and the bed and at the end of calibration, move Z axis to have space and move the probe a little up. Redo the XYZ calibration and so on.

It's better to repeat this operation instead of moving the probe too much.

To control that everything is ok, when the PINDA probe "see" the bed, then a little red light shine at the top of the probe. If not then there's a problem with the probe...
