Please can you help?
My machine is not cutting or rastering consistently. It is fine to the left side of the table, but when asked to do a job that fills the bed, cutting is no where near going through material (3mm acrylic) and etching/rastering is barely visible to the right and lower parts of the bed. I have done usual cleaning lenses/cone/reset bed etc. etc. but to no avail. I can only fear that the Laser cartridge is on its way???

Any help would be appreciated. Ta.

Have you checked the beam alignment?

It shows you how to check it on page 27 of the user manual which can you can download.

If it is not centered you can move mirror number 2 on the left using the 3 screws (remove the cover on the left first) behind it.

I am adjusting the first mirror housing (on the left) taken the part cover off, 2 small crosshead screws, and can get to the three screws of the housing. Re-aligned beam using three Allen screws.
Just put all the parts back-BINGO Brand new machine!
Superb !

Cheers fella
