Z axis failure! Please help!

Please help I recently just built the Prusa mk3 i3 kit and I cant calibrate the XYZ axis

i found this guy with the same type of problem so watch the video to understand whats happening.

here are some points that may help

self test says that all is ok

when the extruder almot touches the bed the PINDA probe not in the dotted circle and the extruder is located 1 cm down between the 0,0 point on the bed. i would day that the probe is 2 or 3 cm away from the circle

i will say that when i go into the calibration settings and click auto home, the PINDA directly locates itself abover the first point. but for some reason when i calibrate xyz it auto homes and is completely off in the same location EVERY TIME

i have factory reset the printer

checked all wires

reset the probe from the manual to the exact location that it asks for several times
