Dust I have a question: Looking at all of the information you sent me, The wiring of my Motors and the wiring on my motors is not the same, sending what I have and how I wired my plugs, Question is it right? I have looked at 50 videos, pictures and read that many more papers on the reprap mendel prusa i3 printer.

The motors have two pairs of wires identify the pairs using a voltmeter set to measure resistance. A pair have resistance and a non pair have no resistance. As long as each pair are connected to the board correctly ie one pair one side of the plug the other pair on the other side, the motor will work.

If it turns the wrong way in use, switch the plug around or change direction in the firmware (invert stepper dir).

I would like to know if anyone out there has mastered the firmware for a RepRap prusa i3 Mendel 3d printer, and could send me a copy of it so I can get this "blinking" printer to work. it would sure be nice to really see if it do or doesn't work, I have a SainSmart Mega2560 + A4988 + RAMPS 1.4 3D Printer KIT For Arduino RepRap with a SainSmart Smart Controller RAMPS 1.4 LCD 12864 LED Turn On Control. I have spent a week trying to figure out how to get the Marlin firmware to work and I get nothing except errors and more of them, if i change one I get 10 more. thank you.

The firmware is very configurable... unless they have identical hardware to yourself, providing the firmware is not really an option...
You haven’t mentioned any of the important stuff.. Thermistor types, belt and pulley types etc..

Use pastebin.com and upload your configuration.h then paste a link here for us to advise whats going on to get it to compile
Also link in a copy of what the error message is

There is also a forum just for the firmware [forums.reprap.org]

You should be able to get a clean compile with the code as-is from github. Are you getting errors with a clean code base? If so, something is probably not right with your arduino build environment.

this is what I'm trying to figure out now, how do i load my library? it's at the bottom of the list.

Every "#ifdef" or "#ifndef" needs a corresponding "#endif" Somewhere in your configuration.h file you must have deleted or commented a line with a "#endif"

I'd start with a clean Configuration.h, make sure it compiles cleanly, then attempt changes one at a time and make sure it compiles.

Edit:

Install a diff utility too. That's a quick way to do a side-by-side comparison to show differences between two source files.

Try windiff: [www.grigsoft.com]

Dust, Would you happen to know which board I would check for my LCD with and SD card?
I have the SainSmart Smart Controller RAMPS 1.4 LCD 12864 LED Turn On Control.
I have my little LCD with a SD working for now.

Looks like a RRD full graphics clone

so
#define REPRAP_DISCOUNT_FULL_GRAPHIC_SMART_CONTROLLER

You don't use a programmer, unless your attempting to install a new boot loader or modify the chip fuses settings

motors
February 06, 2016 12:22PM
Dust:

I"ve got the X, E and Y motors running fine still having a problem with the Z motors in that they will not run when hooked together one at a time okay both forget it, I read a article "Motors don't move RAMPs 1.4 + Arduino Mega 2560 + Sprinter Kliment + Pronterface" on WIKI and it said something about running the motors in Z motors in series, if not what else could be doing it? or something else I can try.

Thank You.
