Homing Y axis with Marlin on Gen 6 (solved)

Homing Y axis with Marlin on Gen 6 (solved)
April 11, 2012 11:35PM

My problem: I built a new prusa using Gen 6 electronics with optos and Marlin Firmware. I've got homing working on the X and Z axis but not my Y axis. When sending M119, Y does not reflect any change; it always shows "y_min:L" wether theres a flag in it or not. I tried switching optos, with no change. I also tried another Gen 6 board with no change. I'm stumped!

Any advice on what to try next?

Update: I spent hours messing with this and 5 minutes after posting the forums it came to me. Printed flags of semi-translucent green work inconsistently at best. I wrapped electrical tape on them and voila!
