Im struggling a little. When I connected I get three red LEDS next to the driver connection s on the board. If I flick my end stops, the red lights go off.

When i run screen /dev/tty.usbmodem1411 115200 (having replaced with my modem number) I get

ERROR:Temperature reading fault on heater 1: open circuit

and then i get continuous

WiFi reported error: no known networks found

I am wondering if I have my end stops right. But then I dont get why I cant connect to the modem at the moment..

Can someone help?

Hi Rob,

At this point in time ignore the endstops, that will be sorted later in the guides.

To stop the WiFi reported error: no known networks found error, quickly send M552 S0.

Please email sales@ooznest.co.uk and we can help you further through there.

Best Regards
