Auto leveling probe is not functioning anymore

Postby AgentTDM » 2017-Dec-Thu-21-Dec

So, My Printrbot Simple Metal had some sort of weird thing where the power shut off during a preheat (power went completely off at the PSU. Had to check wiring and start over again). I checked everything at the board and nothing seemed burned or such... I got it connected with Octoprint and heated up just fine afterward...But, when I went to go start a print...the auto-leveling probe is no longer working. The probe itself seems to stay lit up whenever the power is connected (it never did that before unless the bed or something got moved). Does this mean that the probe itself got fried? Or does it mean there is now a problem at the point where it connects to the Rev F board? I ran a whole new set of wires to test. It's doing the same thing, even with the new ones.

There is information available (google) for testing inductive probes out there. Pretty much connect to power/ground on the correct pins and the other pin will toggle when a piece of metal is put in front of the probe.
