Re: 3d touch wont deploy pin and slams into the bed

I don't see the probe light go out like it does on mine when it starts to lower. Whenever mine stays red it goes up instead of down when it gets to the middle of the bed.
Maybe your G-code should have M280 P0 S10 before G28 to activate the probe...

You are down to just two wires. You are nearly done. Black and white wires from sensor connect to the board.

To Z min stop? I forget but the photos and instructions are clear there.You are almost finished. Is it one of those two wires that gets reassigned in pins.h?
Z min-end stop 32 --??

I forgot to add that it is normal for the nozzle to go up if the sensor is Red--not extended. It's wired right when it does that.

Re: 3D Touch Sensor:Auto-levelling for Geeetech 3D printer

What color is the light on sensor when going down to bed? White is good--and pin extended. Red is not--pin retracted and no help! Maybe this will help. I was stuck where you are for a bit until I work this through. First prep sensor with -- M280 P0 S160. Then change color to white with M280 P0 S10 T...

Those numbers in the matrix don't stand for correction at each point.
