Hello, I need your help : since 3 days my laser cutter have lost of it’s cutting power, I thought it was an alignment problem as it was time to check it but my laser suddenly decided not to fire anymore at all : nor if I launch a task neither if I press the test button, there’s no more red light going through the lasertube…
Any suggestion ?
Thanks in advance

Hi, If you suddenly lost power more than likely it’s a power supply issue. Is this a stock K40? Here is a guide put together by @donkjr to troubleshoot power supplies.
