How to tune again my a4988

Hello evryone.
Today I tried to change a4988 VREF, but I turned the potentiometer too far, so I don't know how to set 1.2v again. Can you help Me?
Thank you.

You can't turn the potmeter counterclockwise? If the wiper is blocked you can turn it 350° clockwise to achieve a 10° CCW correction.

You also may have damaged the pot terminally...

So, now I must change my driver. What's the best driver for the GEEETech Acrylic prusa i3?

Don't buy DRV8825 or TMC21xx drivers. They can give you a headache when you're unexperienced.
There are drivers with 1/128 microstepping, but AFAIK they require rewriting/reflashing the firmware ( Marlin on Ramps? ). Not recommended for beginners.

Why not stick to A4988?

I've got a GT2560 Controll board, it has the same pinset of old ultimaker board. I don know anything about mecchanic and electronic, I bought this stepper motor [www.amazon.it]
I don't know If the a4988 are enought power to move this motor.

That motor is rated at 1A per phase, low enough to be driven by an A4988.

Ok, thankyou. If I want to achieve it on my MK8, I have to make a reduction?

I have a 1.2A stepper on my MK8 and it works reliable, just keep the retraction speed below 80mm/s.
