Title:

Laser light not working

Text:

Hi
 
I've just got my BoXZY powered up. I've got my PC communicating with it and started going through the laser tutorial. When I press the Alignment button there's no light coming from the laser and nothing when I press print.
 
The log showed there's a print head attached not laser. The Etch power settings are at Min 20% and Max 100%.
 
Please help :(

OK guys, so I checked the white wire and when I reassembled I wrapped it around the screw to ensure a good contact but still no laser working. I checked all other wire connections while it was open and all seemed fine.

When I connect the machine to the interface the command still shows the "BoXZY 3D Printer Head Detected" but not laser? Also, when I disconnect the "Quick Change Head" harness from the laser head nothing comes up on the log on the interface.
 
Any other ideas? Come on BoXZY, please be a bit more proactive on this, as you can tell I'm getting a little frustrated.
