Hello friends! My amazing partner helped me purchase the GF Plus to cut back on hours of woodworking outside in Louisiana weather and to make preparing for art festivals less insane. I’ve been obsessing over and loving it for about three or four days. Treating it like a new born child. I just made something I was reeeeally excited about on PG medium draft board. Went to make a second cut-out/engraving on the same material and it barely made it through the contact paper. Tried other previously successful prints on other PG materials and the laser just completely went out. I sat down to research some troubleshooting and heard a strange noise I thought was a leaf blower outside, then noticed the tube with the liquid was bubbling pink and I immediately turned off the machine. That was yesterday.
This morning i cleaned the tray, lens and unplugged and replugged the ribbon. I even created a new user account through another email and tried a simple test print provided by GF and the machine acts as if it thinks it is doing what it is supposed to, but the laser just won’t turn on. I can still trace and see the bed, but no prints/cuts whatsoever. I have a show in less than a month and I gotta get this baby working. HELP!
