Taz 6 gear noise after firmware upgrade

I have the Taz 6 with the original tool head, just recently I upgraded to the most current firmware via Cura. and the gear started to make clicking sounds as it looks to shift in reverse.

Video of this issue (tool head noise - YouTube)

From a recommendation, today I downloaded and installed (Marlin_TAZ6_Universal_2. from GitLab. This did not solve the issue. Any other ideas?

I have replaced the (Marlin_TAZ6_Universal_2. with a firmware from 2 years ago (Marlin_TAZ6_SingleExtruder_2.0.0.144_aded3b617) the toolhead does not skip, how every when finding home the toolhead is not centered on the probe so when it checks for level it almost misses the front right disc. Is there a way to modify the locaiton of home/ toolhead with in setup or If someone could update the most current firmware to fix my issue I would like to be running the most current firmware. TY

I’m not having a problem with either of those firmware versions on my TAZ 6.

Hello Morgan,

Are you using the original tool head? If so could you share some of the setting you have, example: Steps or any other setting with in the LED screen that may be changed outside of the firmware. Maybe one of these are different and causing my issue.

Yes, I’m talking about the original, Single Extruder v2.1. I have multiple tool heads. With the Universal firmware, the default settings for each tool head may not exactly match your specific tool head. A future version of CuraLE will have updated start code for each tool head which you can edit to customize the start code.

Here is a copy of the start code additions for my tool heads. I have not done PID tuning for my four Single Extruder tool heads (3 with different nozzles and 1 modified for 1.75 filament).

Note: With the firmware, I don’t have any of the above commands in the start gcode. After flashing the firmware, I manually set the E-steps and the Z-offset and save the settings (M500).

My TAZ 6 is connected to a Raspberry Pi 3B running OctoPi / OctoPrint. Below are the outputs of the initial connection with each version of the firmware (shows M110 and M503 output).

The Universal output is before I set my specific parameters. Let me know if you have questions.

Thank you, I will take a look.

Were you able to resolve this issue? My single extruder is doing the exact same thing.

I updated the firmware to and this appears to have corrected the issue.
