So I cleaned the interior of my glowforge today. It wasnt super dirty but I felt that it needed to be cleaned. I followed the instructions and VERY carefully removed the laser head. I used lens wipes on the lenses. I placed it back and made sure the ribbon had a good connection to the head.
Now, the glowforge loads a job and the head moves as though it is printing a job. However, no laser is shot from the head.
I then tried to make a cut just to test it. The head moved as fast as it does while cutting, but it basically just engraved a light line where the cut job should be. Also, it was a fat line, not skinny and fine the way a cut would be. This job was on basswood.
Any suggestions??? im really hoping there is an easy fix. I had some things in mind to make for the holiday season
