Laser will not start a job. Alarm:2

This is the error message I’m getting.

G-code motion target exceeds machine travel. Machine position safely retained. Alarm may be unlocked. (Right-click the ‘Devices’ button to reset the connection)

On or near line 6:

Job halted

I’m not sure what I am doing wrong. The machine is on, I can move the head around with the controls, I can “fire” the laser. But whenever I try to start a burn or use the frame command I get the above error.
Any help would be helpful. This is my first laser of this type.

A couple questions:

  • What kind of machine?
  • Does it have limit switches and homing enabled?
  • What ‘Start from’ setting are you using?

Sorry it is the Ortur M2 yes it has limit switches. I’m not sure what Start From settings means.

It’s possibly the most common thing that new Ortur users change:
