so I got my 2.8W laser from J Tech and can’t seem to burn anything even after doing the focusing procedure. Right now, I’m only running it out of the box @ 1.4A. Sending M106 255 gives me 1.46A but the laser don’t seem to burn anything (even paper). Talking to Jay about this now right now but just wondering if any of you guys experienced this. Here are some pics of how I setup my laser to my MPCNC

any other things to look at? my plan later tonight is to use all 5 jumpers to see if I can start burning something. here’s a video of a file that I tried to burn in paper (gcode created from Laser Etch) with 200 power and 200 speed
