I am using an Aeon Mira 9 CO2 laser with HP elitebook laptop with windows 10 at work. I just got my machine up and running. First night made 6 4.75" X 1.5" acrylic placards. No problem. Next night, I tried to make 6 more, but the engraving was not as deep and didn’t cut all the way through the plastic. The third night, I stopped the job shortly after it started (about a minute into a 6 minute job). And now I don’t have any type of cutting/engraving going on.
Tonight, I realigned my mirrors, mirror 2 was well off the mark, and mirror 3 was slightly off. Corrected both issues. Pulse function works fine. I used the “Focus test” under “laser tools” and the laser probably went 50% as deep as it should. When I tried a new project, no laser beam. It’s like the beam is turned off, but I can pulse, and the faint engraving of the focus test.
I have seen people post their $$ info, but when I open my “Console”, I don’t know how to select it to type in it. But I will include screen shots of my settings:

So for all of my confusion and thank you for your help!
