Before you start, please ensure the cables are plugged in the correct order.
To the slot called EXP1 (see the board) must be connected cable with ONE black stripe.
To the slot called EPX2/EXP2 (see the board) must be connected cable with TWO black stripes.
There is an updated version of the LCD connectors, which are now connected perpendicular (90°) to the board. Functionality remains the same. See the second picture.
The board (PCB) can be red or blue, their functionality is the same.

ATTENTION!!! In case you haven't assembled the anti-vibration feet yet, the front part of the printer will be resting on the mounted LCD. Apply the feet now or be very careful as you might damage the LCD holder. For assembly head back to Chapter 2 (Y-axis).

Press through four M3x10 screws.
Place the LCD assembly onto the front side of the Y-axis.
Tighten all four screws.
