I see you are using an external controller.
I am fairly certain that your external controller will need to support slaved homing for this to work correctly, reason I say that is because I remember the SmoothStepper having slaved axis homing problems at one time.
I think most likely your problems are with this, so possibly contact the vendor and see if they can shed any light on whether the controller supports slaved homing and how to set it up.

Thank you Hood, I have sent them an email today.

I swapped the motor drivers over Y axis with the A axis , and strangely enough it has started working, will do more testing later to see if its reliable.

Thank you for your help

I also wound down the amps on the Nema 23's to 1.8A, all seems to be working well now
