    Newbie Setup question

    Hi there,

    I just received and assembled a CR-10 S5. It is my first 3D printer and am having difficulty setting it up.

    When I use Auto home the printer moves the print head towards the limit switch, backs up about 10mm then returns slowly until the switch again activates. It does this in the Y and Z directions but in the X axis. In the X axis it never travels left towards the limit switch, it moves 10mm away and never returns.

    The result of this is that successive presses of Auto Home have the head ending up further and further to the right (positive direction when using 'move axis') and it never finds "home" in the X axis.

    Is this possibly the result of incorrect assembly or wiring? Am I missing something in how this is supposed to work?

    kind regards

    Paul

    Sounds like either a deffective board or bad wiring, yes. Did you contact your sales point?
