error"something created a problem, need to do Z calibration..."

I've got another problem after my "check axis" error (got that resolved by reseating my hotend in the assembly, took three hours to do fix that!).  I could get my m3ks+ to calibrate, and I was able to run the first layer calibration the first time.  I then inserted the SD card, and when it tried to do the mesh adjustments (again) got error "something created a problem, need to run Z calibration..." on the third point, then it calibrates the Z again and again and again and again with the error popping up every time.  I finally turned it off to see what will happen in an hour or so (I stayed home terribly sick today and need to eat something, I've been at this for four hours now).  I really need help on this one since I can't find that error anywhere either (guess I'm the one getting the odd errors that no one tested).  Again, I just want my printer to work, so tired of trying to get it to work....

Since I can't figure out how to edit my posts, the error actually says "Some problem encountered, Z leveling enforced..." ,  then it goes into Z calibration over and over again until I turn the power off.   (where is the edit button on these posts?)

The measured value differs from the stored value.  The commonest reasons are: something (usually support debris) trapped under the build sheet. Or: the build sheet is cocked up on top of one of the locator pins. Or: if you have several build sheets, you have changed sheet without telling the printer.

Otherwise go back to Prusa support, they're good at tracking these down.

Cheerio,
