Help with setup - solved
So everything has been redone.
Print lights are working, fans come on as expected, heater cartridge and thermistor work.
tried to power on using usb still no green light.
@RonP can you post your config.g?
@jay_s_uk will be a couple of hours. Had to take dog to the vet.☹️
Here it is

M305 P1 T100000 B4138 R4700 ; set thermistor + ADC parameters for heater 1
B4138 is the default and wrong for your thermistor. look up the correct value in your thermistor documentation
also add a T0 to the end of your config. (is "Select the First Tool on Start-Up" in the configurator)
you also might want to enable "Read config-override.g file at end of startup process (provides similar functionality to the EEPROM option in Marlin)"
makes the calibration for a delta easier.
@RonP I can't see anything there that would stop the smart effector from working (i just compared it against my old RRF2 with smart effector config).
What voltage are you working with? 12v or 24v?
@RonP not sure what else I can add then.
I would use a multimeter just to check everything out once more.
@jay_s_uk hey Jay, went through it all again and it seems good. So does that mean my effector is bad ?
Thanks for taking the time to help me.
@RonP I think for @Phaedrux to be able to answer that, he'll be after clear photos of the top and the bottom of the board, ideally without anything attached.
Can you also comment on when and where you purchased it?
If the green light on the Smart Effector never comes on at all, even at power up, the most likely reason is that it is not getting 3.3V and ground through the 8-pin connector.
First i want to say thank you for everything.
It is working now.
Couple of suggestions:
1.) The ordering of the connections on the documentation (Smart Effector) doesn't line up with the actual 8 pin. Jay pointed out my error.
2.) Update the documentation to reflect the correct green led light or say it could be over here (empty header) or here (by the 8 pin)
So what i think happened is that we had it working shortly after the 6 pin re-do. I was so focused on the green led near the empty header that i didn't see the green led by the 8 pin.
I just happened to see it when i went to take it apart again and touched the print head and saw the green led by the 8 pin.
But thanks again for all the focus and attention.
