Hello everyone, I’m new to the laser community and just set up my Ortur Laser Master 2 20w laser. The issue I’m having is the laser will not home to the front left of the machine using lightburn. The laser moves fine and will fire a project if I change the start position to anywhere other than the home position. It worked initially then just started making a loud noise and not stopping when the Y-axis stop switch was engaged in the home position.
I’ve triple checked the wiring harnesses and ensured I have the current firmware for the laser and the most current version of Lightburn. At this point, I’m thinking of ordering a new Y-axis stop or just manually changing the home position in Lightburn. I’d greatly appreciate any assistance or advice to correct this.
The code below is what appears in Lightburn.
Homing fail. Could not find limit switch within search distance. Defined as 1.5 * max_travel on search and 5 * pulloff on locate phases.
Ortur Laser Master 2 Ready!
