Good Evening everyone, I was hoping to see if I could get some tips on things I can check to see If my laser has kicked the bucket? I brought it over to my Girlfriends house over the weekend to finish a project I was working on to engrave a tray. It engraved the tray faintly but not the quality I expected. I am not sure what I have done here to cause this issue. I was just using the laser last week to practice burning some photos using Jarvis, Dither, and stucki settings on a piece of wood. I ran it pretty hard but seemed like it had no issues. It was raining when I brought it into my girlfriends garage and left it for a day before I attempted to use it only change I did before burning the tray was update to 0.9.20 which I dont think was the issue. I was running GRBL .9 something.
Chinese laser (of course) no info on model 60cm x 50cm
driver is a CH340
Updated firmware to 1.1e
- Updated the firmware
- updated the driver CH340
- attempted to use lightburn, eleksmaker, laserGRBL. same thing with all three
- Device powers up. Computer detects it. It attempts to burn but sometimes I can get little burns but most of the time nothing anymore. at one point when burning the letter T it started to burn part of the T then stopped after getting to the top.
if you need anymore info let me know. My trial for lightburn has expired. I have emailed asking for an extension. Any help would be appreciated.
