Hi there , i have just purchased an elekslaser a3 and i have been using lightburn quite succesfully barring the odd user error .
Today i did a project that took 55min and it did it absolutely perfect i stopped for a coffee and bit of lunch and i went to do another couple things and the laser stopped about 3/4 way through the engrave , so i checked all the cables made sure the computer didn’t go to sleep so i tried again and it did again but at a different point of the program so i then rechecked everything and loaded a differ file only for it to do it again stop mid engrave .
I have altered no settings etc as i say I’m a complete novice what i dont understand is how at 11am it was working perfectly well yet by 1pm it stopped working and hasnt worked since unless its a small design , i have tried both the designs it stopped with on a smaller scale and it completed both with no issues.
Any help gratefully accepted before i throw it in the rubbish bin .
When it says “Port opened, waiting for response” like that, it means the board disconnected, then reconnected. I’m not terribly familiar with the Eleksmaker boards, but you could have a poor quality USB cable, a loose connection with the USB cable, or a loose power connection. Any of these could cause that problem, so look there first.
