The statement of your problem is a bit ambiguous, so maybe you can clarify... It's clear enough that you bought an un-assembled original Printrbot. Was it in its original packing, or had the original owner assembled it and then torn it down again for shipment? It seems you are saying there were parts missing (or maybe broken).

What is the "board" you are referring to? Ponoko doesn't seem to make electronics boards, so I guess you aren't referring to the Printrboard. Just a matter of words here, but mostly when people refer to the "board" they mean the Printrboard. Not complaining, just seeking clarification.

Why would you think that the firmware that came with the printer was non-functional? Exactly what did the printer do (and not do) when you told it to print?
Even as a newbie, you can post a picture of the blob (see the "Upload attachment" tab below the post-editing box). It's pretty common for the first attempt to be a blob (hence the board topic "My First Blob") but that doesn't mean your software is defective; it may just be a matter of settings.

Most of the boards in use are Rev D or Rev F. AFIK, the only significant difference between Rev B and Rev D is that for Rev B you need a jumper on the "bootloader" pins to tell it to run the normal program, whereas on Rev D you need the jumper on the bootloader pins to tell it to run the bootloading program. Note that (at least on Rev D) a power-down, power-up cycle does NOT sense the presence or absence of the jumper; you must use the "reset" switch to make the board transition to the state demanded by the jumper. It defaults to "run the regular program" on power-up (at least on Rev D).
