    Make sure you have the correct pulleys in the right place. If your head goes past the bed when you do an Auto bed level then you might need to change the pulleys.

    Once that is correct, the end-stop adjustment screws are used to fine-tune the head so that it will sit at 0,0.

    Do you mean the stepper motors? All of those are correct. It stays inside the bed. It moves and contacts both X and Y stitches and raises the bed to the correct spot but it doesnt go to the correct "home" position.

    No, the pulleys/wheels that are attached to the stepper motors. There is a 12 tooth and a 20 tooth. If they are in the wrong spot then the head will travel too short in one direction and too far in the other.

    Ok I switched out the tooth gears with the 20 tooth on the x axis motor and the 16 on the Y axis motor. Everything is fine on my x axis with it moving to the proper 150 mm position but with my y-axis it is only moving back to 70 mm. Any ideas?

    Do i need to contact support directly for a problem like this? It seems like the settings may be off. All of the geared parts were corrected and i made sure the wiring was in the right place on the mother board? Is there a way i can manually fix this from the lcd screen? Or am i over thinking this. I can post a video if needed
