Laser always on.
« on: November 29, 2016, 09:33:29 AM »
Help. Newbie here.
Using EleksMaker L7 with BenBox 3.7.99 and LX.hex driver.
Started with jumper pin on 8 and all OK except laser was always on so outline OK nothing else.
Changed jumper to 9 and now nothing works.
Has to be something simple. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Double check the hex, it should say something like LX-Nano.328p.xxxxxxx and it doesn't matter if the jumper is either position as long as the Benbox setting is using the correct pin value (11 for 0.9 and 12 for 0.8 ).

I don't think the L7 has additional holes for the Nano but double check.

Load the firmware from Zax and try the demo version of either T2Laser or BCL.

Thanks, that worked right away. It was pin value 12. I had it set to 11.
Now I can experiment and see what this thing will do.

It will do a lot more with BCL or T2Laser  ;D
