In between one print and the next on Thursday (Friday?) the Glowforge got stuck on centering. Then it wouldn’t resolve I tried turning it off and back on again. At this point it decided to not move past either the centering or scanning phase during start up. The print head doesn’t move. The motor spins up like normal, but only the first little bit, then stops and nothing happens after that.
I have tried:
cleaning everything (lenses, camera, tracks, tray, below the tray, fan, heatsink, connectors)
unplugging it overnight
removing the tray
putting the tray back in
putting a piece of proofgrade on the tray
checking connections that are accessible (to the print head, to the camera, at the lid)
flattened the cable inside the back of the back of the print head after gently wiping down)
turning it off and back on again more times than I can count
centering the print head under the camera and leaving the lid open for like half an hour then closing it, with the intention that it would kickstart it into recentering (done this like 3… maybe more… times)
So what’s the next possible steps?
I already had to go into 2 shows without a full compliment of restock and with the holidays on my heels I’m starting to panic.
