Lightburn with Mini Gerbil Laser not turning of between objects

I just installed a Mini Gerbil in my older K40 from Shenhui laser china , got it up and running seems fine EXCEPT it does not turn off the laser when moving from Home to an object and when moving to another object, the laser ON line is going hi/low but it starts from home, I tried everything I could find on here and the Awesonetech forum , no luck , heres my Gcode settings and the image/file I am using , I did not hook up the POT to the PCM pin fyi.

What version of firmware are you running?

Your ‘S-value Max’ in LightBurn needs to match what you have set in firmware, which I see you have set to $30=1000, so your ‘S-value Max’ should be set to 1000 as well.

If the laser is never turning off, it could be incorrectly wired (connected to the ‘L’ instead of ‘H’ input, for example), a loose wire or connection, or a faulty high voltage PSU.

I fixed it ! the PWM has to be hooked up , I assumed the ON/OFF signal controlled that part ! it does NOT the PWM does from with in the gcode ( I assume ) , anyhow thanks for the reply !

Yes, for a CO2 machine they’re both connected.
