I noticed that on longer prints, sometimes one of the filament runout sensors are triggering even if filament is inserted.
What happens then is, that the blue LED on the input turns off, the filament is being cut, the print stops and the display ready:
All filament inpouts have run out.
To solve this, I have to force-pull the filament out off the input where the LED doesn't light up (so that the button on the sensor untriggers), select the input I want to load the filament, and then insert the filament again.
Then the light turns on and the filament is spliced.
This happens randomly on any of the four inputs. Even with very straight filament (not tangled, twisted ones since I thought the play in the input tube is too big so that the filament could somehow avoid pushing the trigger - but this seems not to be the case).
I created a video to demonstrate this:
Currently I'm having a 16hour print... and having the printer paused every 5 minutes or so is on the one side annoying and will create blobs on the print due to the paused printhead.
Hope this is a software issue that can be fixed soon.
