You will need to adjust your proximity switches by moving them. With the power off, move the X axis so that the nozzle is just to the right of the edge of the glass on the left side of the machine. Slide the switch on the rod until you hear it click.

Now do the same for the Y. Move the table to the back of the machine until the nozzle is just onto the glass. Then slide switch until it makes contact with the bearing and you hear it click.

Now turn on machine. Go to Settings->Auto Home and the nozzle should be on the glass now.

Hopefully you have first calibrated the Z/glass bed. Do this first so that the nozzles doesn't crash into the glass bed.

Does the printer go to the home position correctly before printing?

are you using the demonstration files on the SD Card that were configured by the Prusa team?

if you are using Pronterface, does the image show your model situated in the middle of the heated bed area?
