Laser tube is not lighting up and firing

Created a one engrave project and then the next would not engrave. The tube is not lighting up and it is not firing. I have checked the connection to the print head. I get a blue flashing light when trying to send a new job but am not finding anything arye. What things can I check?

The blue flashing light is correct.

What are you trying to print?
Try the Gift of Good Measure on a piece of PG (they should have sent a spare piece of draftboard). If that works, it’s an issue with your design. If it doesn’t, that means you’ll definitely need to contact support!
