 The pins for the filament sensor belong to the 6-pin header pins near the centre of the lcd module. The top two pins, in the right column of pins are used. There is a problem with the choice of connector JGAurora have used. The pins for the filament sensor belong to the 6-pin header pins near the centre of the lcd module.

 +Note: This issue has been resolved by JGAurora in recently manufactured machines by using hot glue to both insulate the other pins, and to hold the connector in place correctly.

 When you try to print, the print may stop (or may fail to start at all), and instead the printer will make a loud beeping sound. When you try to print, the print may stop (or may fail to start at all), and instead the printer will make a loud beeping sound.

-Checking the sensor is plugged into the right pins is easy: the connector plugs into the block of six pins near the centre on the back of the LCD screen. The correct pins are the top two pins, in the right column of pins, in that block of six pins. e.g:ย +Checking the sensor is plugged into the right pins is easy: the connector plugs into the block of six pins near the centre on the back of the LCD screen.
