RepRap is humanity's first general-purpose self-replicating manufacturing machine. It is an open-source project that focuses on the creation and development of 3D printers that can print (some of) their own parts.

Hello! I am trying to swap out the the board in my Makerselect V2 because the SD card reader became detached and damaged the circuit board. I purchased a Melzi Reprap 2.0 Pro 1284P to replace it with and wanted some advice/guidance on how to make this happen. I have an Arduino Uno to flash new firmware to the board, but unsure how to do it properly. I also wanted to use the LCD screen that was on the original board as well, but I can’t figure out how to get it to work properly. It’s an Melzi LCD v5 I believe. It has a rotary knob, but no SD card slot on it. Here is a picture of the board for reference
I have been having a series of issues with my Reprapguru v2 that I can't since to fix. The E0 stepper port isn't working. The stepper is fine and runs without issue when plugged into the Y or X port. I have swapped the stepper drivers around and even purchased a new set of them and that doesn't work. I have bought and tried a total of 2 replacement Arduinos and 4 RAMPs boards to try and trouble shoot this. I have also used marlin code that worked prior as well as a newer version.
Does anyone have an idea what could be going on because I am at a loss?
I have both an MKS Gen L and an MKS Base 1.5 on hand to play with, and a couple of devices I'm trying to attach via i2c. I have a code/firmware library I know works based on hooking the devices up to a generic RAMPS 1.4 board.
My issue is I can't seem to figure out how to wire up for i2c on these MKS boards, or find any decent documentation about how to do it.
Pins 20/21 don't show up on any pinout maps, and I cant seem to figure out any other way to get those attached.
Last resort I can do some microsoldering to those pins on the atmega2560 with some kynar wire, but I'm trying to avoid that if possible.
