I've had my Anet A8 going with a BLtouch clone for a couple of years through marlin firmware.
Changed to klipper the other day and noticed that klipper didn't play well with the clone sensor, so i bought a genuine bltouch 3.1.
When i changed to the new sensor the printer won't boot properly.
If i disconnect the servo leads i can get the printer to boot, and once that is done i can connect the leads and get the sensor working as it should.

I have a couple of working theories right now:
Either i should set the output mode of the sensor to 5v, however i don't know if that's correct for the sensor pin on the motherboard.
Else the sensor draws too much current at boot so the board can't handle it.

As of right now i believe i have the sensor pin wired into the lcd same as the clone probe did.
I've seen some guys have disconnected the wire going to the lcd, but i can't find out why and if it has any drawbacks with this method.

Anyone else had this problem?
