Homing Failed - Mini 2

Trying to get my Mini 2 running and not going well - had to return head for a filament issue and it was also not assembled properly and won’t connect to my laptop - so not impressed so far

Tried the manual home X axis since the Mini 2 will not connect to my laptop

Picked X axis home from the menu on the Mini 2

Results: Moved to the left and ugly grinding sound

Homing Failed
PRINTER HALTED
Please reset

So now what do I do with this printer that still has not produced the test print for me?

Thanks

I klutzed around a bit and Auto Home seemed to start working -

Some of the online “advice” suggested moving things - which did not impress me - so maybe magic - but up and running now but still on the learning curve,
