I can confirm that the new firmware that is posted above does fix the light controls. It would be nice if the brightness could adjusted with the jog dial, kind of like the way you do with you extruder/bed temp.
I also noticed that the serial baud rate has changed from 115200 to 250000. The manual still shows 115200, so what setting should I use? 250000 does work at this time, but if it should be lower then let me know and I will make this adjustment. If it needs to be set to 115200, then I feel the firmware should already come with that value adjusted.
Like John, I am also having issues with my printer not printing in the center of the bed. I did try what John suggested, but the print head would just stick in the back right corner and would not move at all. I both manually moved my carriage to the front left and used the jog dial. I would really like a resolution to this issue soon because it is making me crazy. I have attached a screen shot of my slicer showing where the model should be printed, and an image of my printer showing where the actually print is happening.
This is where it should be printing. This is where it is actually printing. In addition I have a question about one of the connectors on the board next to the print head. There is an open connection labeled PWR_FAN and I was wondering how I might be able to get that to work? It is right next to were the fan for the extruder plugs in, but at this time I am not able to get any power from that port. Is there a way that can be changed? The reason why I ask is that I have designed an active cooling duct/fan mount for the MeCreator2 and this would be a nice place to connect the power. (you can see the cooler in the attached image). It would be nice if it was controlled via the slicer software. Use the 'Enable Cooling' option when you check the 'Override Slic3r Settings' and have the active cooler turn on.
Lastly I see you have done some work on the manual but I see that the links to the .STL files no longer exist. You still reference them though which is confusing. I would have prefered that you either correct the links in the manual rather than remove the links, or remove all reference to the files. It is my opinion that having the links makes it easier for users to get those files and follow along.
Looking forward to your reply.
About the baud rate,you should use 250000,which is compatible with the value in the firmware.
2.Not In The Center Of Heat Bed
Not printing in the center of the bed,there are two possibilities:
1)Did you have a right setting in Printer Settings? 2)Was the size of the actual printing the same as the size of your model?If it wasn't, maybe the step/mm of your motor is wrong.
3.The PWM_FAN connector
You can use a fan which can be controlled,which is different from the one of the extruder:

4.The .STL file
Would you mind attaching some screenshots of the not existing file,so that we can modify it.Thanks
