soo i tried your suggestion didnt work either, so i got an idea to flash it back to its benbox software and magic happend, the laser stopped, immediately i tried to flash it back to 1.1c and the laser startet to go full power again, it didnt work on 0.9g aswell :/
dunno if this is really a hardware problem and something doesnt like t2laser
do i have to get a diffferent board or what? :)

If you use the manual laser controls and set power to 255 and turn the laser on, then change power to 0 and press laser ON again... does it turn off?

It should since you requested power 0. If not, you have some hardware issue.

I would also suggest using Grbl 1.1c that is included with recent versions of T2Laser.

Benbox firmware is 0.8 so default uses D12 for the laser, compared to 0.9 or 1.1 that uses a PWM pin D11.

If you didn't move the jumper back then you didn't have the laser connected to any signal so it wouldn't work.

hmm im starting to get a bit lost, dunno if its because im not native in english or some terms are little bit more technical :)
here is a shot how my jumpers are placed, do i have to move something or rip something apart and re-do it? :D
