It’s been said many times, but make sure you listen for the “click” when reinstalling your lens after cleaning. Apparently, I wasn’t paying enough attention today and my lens didn’t click into place correctly. So now I’m out of commission until I can get replacement lens and figure out if there are other issues.
Here’s what happened:
I cleaned lens and mirrors then cut one small part for a friend.
Moved onto the next project, but it did not cut properly.
So I figured I would clean lens and mirrors again just to be sure.
Lens basically fell out and you see the result.
I also noticed what looked like a loose ring inside the head. Turns out to be a rubber ring that apparently got out of place and damaged by laser.
Now if I reinstall lens, it does not “click” in. Doesn’t seem to be any magnetic retention. Not sure what’s going on there.
Waiting on Tech Support response to see where we go next.
Don’t rush…prep properly.
