Ultimaker original+ Home problem with steppers/limits

Recommended Posts

Hey All,

Problem

From the first moment my printer has problems reaching its zero point.

When returning to X,Y = 0,0 the X- and Y- limit switches are touched, but afterwards the print-head wants to do a step forward. This results the head blocks and the stepper motors want to continue.

The (temporary) solution to this is to put the print-head by hand into the corner, from which the printer continues its program. Somehow i can not find the problem or a similar problem on the forum.

On my dropbox is a movie that shows what happens :

Solved

X-limit switch was connected on the y-port of the electronic board and Y-limit switch was connected on the x-port of the electronic board.
