i can't home my machine too. and my axes are reversed. my z for example, it should start 0 from the top going negative downwards. right now, it's reversed. even if i click "reverse" it doesn't work...and more thing for instance i already reached the lowest my max z can travel, how do i bring it back up?

Dude,

I am no expert but it sounds like you are on the wrong settings page.  Look under the config menu for the "Homing/limits" section.  Try the Home Negative and reversed check box there.  It probably would be good to also watch the video about homing/limits that is on the Artsoft website IMHO.

Good Luck!

It sound like the Dir pin is not changing... If you jog the Z can you move it up and down?
