Starting after a manual STOP

I am still learning, so, I have had to stop a few test burns.
After I manually hit stop, I hit the HOME button and change out the material for a fresh one.
If I start the job again, the laset head moves to the starting point, then just stays there and the laser blinks as if it is pulsing at the right pace, but the X-axis is not moving. So, it just burns a hole.
Is there a better sequence of steps to reset everything after a manual STOP?
Exiting LightBurn and restarting seems to work, but it seems like there might be a better way.
Thanks and stay safe!

Did you hit the Stop button in LightBurn itself? The behavior you’re describing is unusual - I haven’t seen that before. Which specific Ortur do you have? There might be a firmware update to fix that.

I do know that the v1.40 of the firmware for OLM2 had an explicit fix for pause/resume behavior. I don’t know if this is the same mechanism used in STOP. v1.42 was recently released as well so worth upgrading if you haven’t yet done so.

Ortur Laser Master Firmware
V1.40
Release Date: 04 January 2021

Fixes:
-Pause/Resume issue been corrected. Laser Pause/Resume functions now work as expected;
-Corrected False positive [Check Limits] on Pro Motherboards (RJ connector/Vertical buttons boards);
Improvements

  • GRBL Core Upgrade from 1.1f to 1.1h;
  • Optimization of USB Driver Library. Attempt to address disconect issues/Alarm 3;
  • Fan Delay ShutDown Function. Fan will Remain on from 30 to 120 seconds, based upon the length of time and maximum power of the just finished engraving.
  • G-Shock Sensor Algorithm. New algorithm reduces the amount of false positives;

Yes, I hit the STOP button in LightBurn.

I thought that I was missing a step to reset things after hitting the STOP button in the software.
The way around it for me was to just quit and restart LightBurn. I stumbled through the projects that I needed for today (last minute gifts).
After tomorrow, I will take a closer look at the problem, unless there is a firmware that I can try first.
Thanks everyone for your prompt help.

You’re on the newest firmware for your model.

I’ve never had great luck running a job following a failed job or unplanned stop. I typically need to reset and restart my laser to recover. I don’t know if this is considered best practice, however.
