    I pressed the end stop and it clicked on the X Axis. However i did not had a chance to check the M119 command - i will do it after work and report the findings.

    I believe that X Axis end stop activation is made by screw marked on below photo

    Exactly how it is supposed to work, but anything that causes the switch to trigger (even a bad/defective switch) will count as the X being HOME.

    If you have a digital.multimeter you can put it on continuity and check between your prongs. That will help.you determine a good switch va bad switxh and then you can continue down the wiring

    Saw your comment on the video. By the looks of that video you posted here, it looks like the X limit switch is being triggered prematurely. Like what most people in this post have said the switch could be bad, but it's more likely caused by the wiring underneath the printer.

    The new switch may fix the issue, but if you run into the same problem; the switch is fine the wiring is bad.

    Ok when I got home i checked the X limit switch and in fact it was triggering even not pressed so i bended a little the metal piece and now it works. G28 and G29 are now executed without problems :)

    Thanks to all who pointed me to that direction :)
