What is wrong with my laser?

i have run this program several times with no problems, I recently tried and I am getting crazy results. I recently was running a rotary attachment that i have removed and also updated to the latest version of Lightburn? I have attached pic to show the problem, the top one is not too bad, but still some erroneousmessed up lines, the bottom all messed up, these are cut at the same time?

Thanks, I see the issue more clearly now… try searching in the forum because there are quite a lot of great threads about things like this… and… :slight_smile:
If you open your laser machine electronics panel and look inside you will see a normally white box with lots of cables attached to it. It will have a number on and a name possibly like Ruida or some numbers…

Please take a photograph of that also

So you have a Ruida 6442, a very popular and good name in controllers.

Now when you search in the forum you can inclue this and far more relevant information will come out.

As a thought though, please try communicating using ethernet, the network cable as the other day a guy had a problem similar to this and changing to ethernet cured it for him…

How are you loading the job “START from the laptop / computer OR Flash drive OR ‘SEND’ then staring from the laser ?”

I don’t know what anyone else is seeing, but those photos are about the size of a postage stamp on my screen. Is really hard to see what’s going on.

Ok, let’s forget the images for now :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Have you tried anything else ?

Different communication for instance…?
Did you try running a burn from the machine not the laptop / PC ?

I got it to stop by homing the machine from the machine controller, not sure why that worked but it did. I would still like to know why it did this. Also, how do you upload images? What format and size do you use so they dont come out so small. They look fine on my end?

I’m really happy you found a way foward.

I just hit the upload, select my image normally which I took with my phone and BAM

Here is the image you posted shown in my browser.

You can copy and paste or drag and drop images inline with your posts or use this to upload.
