Creality Cr10s - BlTouch makes my printer not turn on ! Please help !

Post by jacob223 » January 11th, 2019, 1:13 pm

Fellow 3D-printing enthusiasts i am in a severe pickle,

I have a Cr10s and installed a BlTouch but the issue right now is:

When the Z-Endstop cable(White and Black cable) of the Bltouch is connected to the motherboard, when turning the printer on , the screen is blank/black and no light is coming off the Bltouch sensor which it did when only the 3 wire cable was connected.

When i start the Cr10s with the Z-Endstop cable for the BlTouch disconnected, the Cr10s display works perfectly and shows the menu as usual.

So what is causing the display to not turn on when the White&Black cable of the Bltouch is connected to the Z-endstop port of my Mainboard

The version of TH3D i have installed is Marlin U1.R2.4b

I bought a genuine BlTouch device.


When the Z-endstop cable(Black and white cable ) was disconnected and instead the stock Z-endstop of the Cr10s was connected the Bltouch had a blue light being on but it didn't work at all either.
Meaning using the BlTouch Selftest, Stow and so on options didn't do anything.

Also i had a huge issue with the Cr10s after updating to thew new TH3D Firmware(With the Bltouch option active during compiling) that when i used the move axis function under control, and turned the knob accidentally too much instead of stopping at Z-axis height 0 it goes into -10 for example and the damn nozzle presses itself with force into the glass bed which is really really gutting to see and hear, why does it do this ? Why doesn't the Z-axis move feature not stop at 0, and why does the damn Z-stop that was connected properly not engage even though i can perfectly hear the click and during auto home it engages as well ? How do i disable the function in TH3D firmware for my Cr10s to go beyond 0 (meaning into the negatives ) when moving the Z-axis ?

Please help me.

Please, please, please help me, i beg you, please help me with this.

I'm am very desperate right now.

You might toss this question out to the TH3D support group on Facebook. I'm not sure where to start with those listed issues

It appears that the Bl-Touch is wired incorrectly for your CR 10.

Brown wire is ground, Red wire is power.

I wonder about the TH3D firmware tho...since they obvious sell a competing product....not that they would disable BL Touch or the like...but there may be some additional steps required.

I do not know! I found the Creality CR 10 Wiring diagram for BL-Touch was keeping it for myself if I decided to add BL-Touch.
When I saw this post thought it couldn't hurt so posted just in case it would be helpful in this case.
