Ok, well here's where I stand:
I built the printer.
2.) turned the printer on and inserted SD card
3.) Hit print from SD card and selected the file
4.) it started heating the extruder 1 immediately to the target temp (BAD)
it started to melt the bed a little because it skipped steps 1-6 in the quick start guide, it did not go left and hit the x end stop and it did not go in the y direction to hit the y endstop; instead it just started heating the extruder where it was and close to the bed...it did not raise up 10mm and start heating either.
I had to cancel print, and hurry up and find out how to manually reduce the temp of the extruder using the LCD screen.
5.) I used the LCD screen to use the Auto Home feature, the extruder went and hit the x end stop, blue led light illuminated and then the bed moved until it hit the y end stop, blue led illuminated. And this is where I stopped.
What do I do from here? the quickstart guide said it was supposed to do this homing feature before the print starts and then left the extruder up 10mm off the bed and begin heating, and when finished heating move to the center of the bed and begin the print.
Here is the gcode file I was going to try and print to test my bed level.
