Hi I am new and also sorry for my bad English.

 

I have yesterday changed my original ender 5 board (v1.1.4)

voor a brandnew board the Creality silent 4.2.7

 

I have flashed the firmware for the ender5

everything seems oke, only when I want to extrude, the E are inverted.

so when I try to print the filament going back from the nozzle?

 

I hope someone can help my with this problem, and again sorry for my bad english

 

regards

Wim

as an alternative way, you can use Ender 5 pro's firmware as these two printers share 95% parts.

I did the same but be careful defaut value are wrong for Z axis. With BL touch is quite difficult tu find the good config in TH3D that why I finally inverted pins ...

took me 3 days to try and trouble shoot why the prints were not coming out well or sticking to the bed

finally got the xyz calibration cube printed and realised that the Z axis was compressed in half. (400 steps instead of 800)

 

found the below easy fix on reddit.
