Z axis calibration failing immediately after use paper dialogue
During calibration, specifically any Z calibration, the printer will fail immediately after clicking continue when prompted to use a sheet of paper for the first 4 points, I.E the first click after the word "immediately" it proceeds to almost ironically immediately error (see fig 1). This prevents further calibration, and subsequently printing. All figures were taken immediately after a failure, to give the most true representation possible.
At this time the following figures show the state of the printer after failing. The most concerning being Fig 2, which shows that while at the top left most position the pinda probe is returning a signal of 1, wheras I believe the probe should be returning 0. This will be the next place I investigate for issues, checking pinda connections and that its not on too tightly.
- Original Prusa i3 Mk3 (Kit)
- Firmware update OS: Windows
- Shipped firmware: 3.1.1 RC5 150
- Current firmware: 3.1.1 RC5 150 (re-flashed)
- Gummy bears: Eaten
- Re-flashing latest firmware that it was shipped with (using windows) version 3.1.1-RC5-150 to version 3.1.1-RC5-150
- "Reset XYZ calibr." + Wizard
- "Reset XYZ calibr." + Calibrate XYZ
- "Reset XYZ calibr." + "Calibrate Z"
- starting the three versions of calibration above with varying [x, y, z] starting positions (I.E extruder assembly starting at different positions)
- checking solutions proposed for similar problems. Calibration Failure! error mssg on Z & XYZ calibration
Next steps while waiting for suggestions:
- checking pinda probe connection to control board.XYZ calibration fails immediately
- factory-resetting printer and further testing of resulting effects.
Error Msg (Fig 1):
State after attempted z calibration (Fig 2):
Although hard to see this says;
- Z1 <- unexpected value
Self test ok (Fig 3):
Z manual move (move axis) after calibration (Fig 4):

apologies for the size, this is both a request for help and a self articulation to better tackle the problem.
Is this a good question?
