I've been working on getting my printer up and running and managed to get five prints, but when I went to turn the printer on again I only get one blue light. I unplugged everything with the same result - one blue light nothing else. I then removed the board as the USB plug isn't easily accessible, and I see the logic lights and am able to connect to DWC. I've been following the wiring guide religiously, and I did not mess with any wires between it working from 24v and it not. Any ideas?

Stepper Motor Advice
I was wondering if anyone had some good recommendations for stepper motors for the Duet 2 Wifi. Here is the kit that I have: https://store.makerstoolworks.com/products/mtw-create-3d-printer-motion-platform-kit
In doing some research it looks like the steppers recommended for this are Kysan 1124090. However the listed voltage and mH are both above 4 which is not recommended in the choosing stepper motors guide. When looking through the forums, it seems like this model from stepper online is often recommended: 17HS19-2004S1. The only concern that I have with these is it looks like the wires are integrated into the motor as opposed to having a plug. This is my first kit where I'm sourcing parts, so any advice is helpful.
On a positive note, the duet was ridiculously easy to get hooked up to the internet - guide made everything clear. I did get an error about heating (I think) when first connecting that might be helpful to include in the guide - I restarted the process because I thought I had messed up, but apparently other people have seen this as well and it doesn't affect the process.
RE: Do I need anything else?
Awesome thanks! Fans are 24v; I'm hoping noctua comes out with some smaller ones by the time I'm ready to replace them with something quieter. Yeah, I'm just trying to minimize the amount of parts I'll find out are critical to having a functioning printer.
Do I need anything else?
I'm new to 3D printing and decided to buy a kit that did not come with electronics instead of buying a full kit and replacing half the electronics within a few months. I got a great deal on a MTW Create Motion kit (https://store.makerstoolworks.com/collections/3d-printers-and-kits/products/mtw-create-3d-printer-motion-platform-kit) which seemed like a very solid frame for my build. Since this is my first 3D printer build, I just wanted to get some feedback on whether I need to order anything else to get my printer up and running so here's all the electronics that I have ordered so far:
Duet 2 Wifi
Cloned Titan Extruder (not sure if I want to go direct or Bowden)
5 x Nema 17 (76oz/in)
Various JST connectors & XT 60
22 AWG Silicone Wire
24v Kapton Bed Heater - came with kit
Fans - came with kit
IEC Plug & Power Cord - came with kit
Cloned BL Touch
I think that's about it for what I've got so far. I wasn't sure which end-stop switches I should get for my build so any advice in this direction would be great. For right now, I plan on just using the web control and not having a screen on the printer itself. Just wanted to see if I should order anything else, because nothing is worse than having to stop building because of a missing part (currently waiting on m3 washers).
