I’m new to Lightburn. I recently purchased a Jtech 2.8W Laser for my brand new Shapeoko 3 XXL. I have the Shapeoko setup and working in my shop and today I installed the laser following the instructions from the Jtech video to the T, making sure everything was installed properly. My laser powers on and functions.
When I installed Lightburn, I followed the instructional video from Myers Workshop on how to setup Lightburn. Everything went just a planned until I got the request to type in $$. Nothing happened. I noticed that my device window said Device Ready but the console said Attempting to Connect to Device (or something like that). When I typed in $$ it would say Port Opened, Waiting for Response and nothing would happen after waiting for over 10 minutes. The Device screen no longer said “Ready”, it said “Busy”.
I am not able to get past this stage and am at a loss. I have not seen any threads addressing this specific issue. Any help with this would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
