Stuck on Centering (anyone else having this issue?)

Hi Folks, the GlowForge is heavily used by staff and students at our school. Today during initialization it developed the “centering” issue that others have mentioned in the forum.

I too would like to see some more details in the device status - it’s just so frustrating to have students wondering what is going on with the machine and all we can tell them is that it is having trouble “centering”. If it’s updating in the background, tell us. The device just feels like a black box sometimes.

Update: by powering on with the lid closed and the camera centered, and being patient and waiting, our beloved GF started working again!


I’m glad you resolved it! I’m going to close this thread. If you run into any other trouble, please start a new topic, or email us at We’re here to help!
