NEJE Master 2S Max 30w - No Power using Lightburn

Hey folks, I found this issue from two other posters over the last few months but no replies. I’m hoping for some help here because I’d like to use Lightburn for my projects. I followed the Northlakes Woodworking tutorial for the Master 2S (thank you guys!) and have Lightburn controlling the laser just fine. However, it gives no power at all even with the cutting power set to 100% and going at a super slow speed, like 5 mm/s. Using the NEJE software I get full power and can make engravings.

I’ve checked $30 is set to 1000, verified the baud rate is 15,200, done multiple resets. Console says Grbl 1.1f when connected so I assume I have the latest firmware, although my next step will be to borrow a PC and upgrade that.

I’ve noticed that the controller LED is yellow when connected to Lightburn and blue when connected to the NEJE software. Anyone know what that means? Cant find anything on the NEJE site.

OS: Mac 11.3.1
Machine settings:

the blue light tells you it is connected to the neje software and the yellow light is when it is connected to lightburn T2 or other programs

Seems what you are saying is that it’s not cutting period. I’m curious as I have a Master 2S Max and on Win 10 as to work area is there an other difference between the two? I had no problems getting it to work. I even replaced the 30 watt laser with the 40 watt one and have no issues.
