Atomstack x30 pro stops mid burn

I bought an atomstack x30 pro about two months ago, use light burn paid license, extensive acer computer with windows 7 sp1 32 bit.
After about two months of using the atomstack, there were few jobs that I was able to complete the first one, after a lot of desperation and a lot of mdf, money and time wasted.
The atomstack out of nowhere loses connection and stops the work in progress, I’ve already changed the usb cable, I’ve tried all the usb ports of the pc, I’ve connected via wireless and it always results in the same problem!
Below are the lines of light burn code and some screenshots.
Thank you in advance for your attention!

Try this as a sanity check
Load the SAME project
Drop all power to 0.1% or 1% just enough for laser to trigger
Run job
Does it still fail?

Sounds to me you have a drop on voltage and your controller is simply crashing mid work

I agree to Gil here, you could also check if you have any high-power devices attached to the same power line (I once had a user whose laser always stopped when the kitchen fan turned on).

Side note: you added the laser as type grbl-m3. This should be “grbl”. This should not cure your problem, but will better handle the laser since grbl-m3 is for ancient machines. :slight_smile:

Yea I have a mini fridge hooked up in my room and it turns on a dimmable lamp I have when it kicks on or off, I’m thinking that it has something to do with it

easily replicable then if you just play with the thermostat :slight_smile:
However, is a massive pain to diagnose, and mitigate those issues

Sounds like much disturbance in the net. You could try to add an EMI filter to the power line of the laser. This might help.
