MSG: 3: Warning: Caution: Unlocked

My cutting halts midway, and the above warning appears. Can someone please help.
I have an Ortur Laser Master 3.
Thank you

Hi Nisha,

Could you scroll a bit higher in the console window and copy/paste the full output when machine errors out?

Also, if you were to unplug the laser head cable, and run the same project, does it still error, or does it finish all motions without errors?

Hi!
Sorry I’m very new to this so I’m not sure how far up I need to start. This probable shows I’ve done several attempts and it keeps jolting.

This is peculiar.
Could you show a fullscreenshot of your LightBurn screen.
Seems you are getting very close to the edge and the controller is getting confused and thinks is going to hit the rails.

If you move the object 1mm in and up does it still happen?

So last time I tried to do a cut this is what showed mid cut

but today its the MSG 3 that’s coming up


Settings screenshot. Maybe this will shed some light

I believe you did not tell firmware you extended the machine

Type in console $131=850
Press enter

Retry

Omg it worked! Thank you so much!! Do I have to key this in everytime? or is there a setting I need to update?

Once set in firmware is forever.

Exception is:
a) if you reset firmware
b) do a firmware update

Brilliant :slight_smile:
