I will take some pictures tonight, but those definitely seem like they could be the answer, which would be really annoying since I spent 2 months waiting for this board. Anyone know of a location in the US where I can buy the main board? I had no luck on Amazon. I do not recommend dx.com....

I have tried swapping the X and Y stops and the y switch worked for the x axis when plugged into that slot and the x switch still did not work on the y slot, just like the y switch hadnt.

Hello rgjeppesen,

From the look of the images everything looks correctly wired, so my guess would be a bad board :/

And boy do I feel stupid.

The y-axis end stop switch issue was actually because I had entirely reversed the X and the Y on my machine, for some reason I was thinking that X was forward and back and Y was left and right. I had both the motors and the switches plugged into the wrong ports, I corrected that and she auto-homes like a champ. I figured it out because I printed a piece with a number on it and the number cam out backwards.... I feel dumb.

Now the only thing left that is wrong is the constant on fan for E1 and it's replacement should be here shortly. After only about a year, I will have a working printer again.

Thank you again guys for all of the help, I really couldnt have done it without your guys help.
