Please be gentle with me here, I am very new to this and have very little experience. I purchased a S9 about a year ago for some personal projects and I loved the laser.
I decided to upgrade it with Limit switches a few months back and went through that process relatively unscared. So this month I picked up the Air assist kit with the 32bit board. This is the kit that can automatically turn on the air assist using Lightburn.
I got everything installed and it fired right up and after manually adding the limit switch macro. It seemed to be working fine till I tried to frame a box. It would home fine and as soon as it would frame it would start rubbing and slam against the limit switches.
I did a little googling and updated the firmware on the board with the Sculpfun 32 firmware from their limit switch video.
Now lightburn connects but nothing works. Lightburn finds the S9 on the com port, connects to it. I get a weird GBRL error that I can find nothing on. Doesn’t move when homing, No movement of the laser, nothing.
Waiting for connection…

Homing fail. Could not find limit switch within search distance. Defined as 1.5 * max_travel on search and 5 * pulloff on locate phases.
Grbl 1.1 [‘$’ for help]
Your Grbl may not support Variable Power mode (M4)
If your laser does not turn off between cuts,
switch to the GRBL-M3 device

Any help would be appreciated
