A10 Z-Stop Wiring - Please can someone help ?

Post by BennyBoyW » Sat Oct 06, 2018 1:51 am

Hi
After a totally unsuccessful attempt to get the BLTouch working well with the A10, I am attempting to return to using the Z-Stop.
I took out the connecting wire when I put the BLTouch in so now I want to connect the wires to the right holes on the connector.

However, I can't work out which wire goes where now - can someone please point me in the right direction ?
I thought the wire with the dots and dashes was the 5V wire. I also thought the plain wire was ground. The middle wire with the long dashes should therefore be z-min (in my mind anyway).
I have tried all the wires in many different combinations but I can't get z-stop to work.

Looking from the top, there are 3 holes on the left and three holes on the right of the 18 pin connector.
I thought the 3 wires should go in like this :
dots_dashes
dashes
plain
on the top left three holes.

Please can someone help ? I have a currently non-functioning A10.

Thanks,
Ben

So from top right as you look at the board from above what is the required order of wires?

That's perfect thanks. I didn't have much time on Sunday and none on Monday, but tonight I can tinker :)
Thanks
