I feel so stupid. there are two buttons on the top of the laser chip. the one on the left is an always on button. I pressed that button which switches the lase into command mode and then it responded to the software.

Laser always on.
I just got a 5500mw laser engraver that uses the Eleksmaker mana se. After installing the eleksmaker software and updating the firmware on my engraver I turned the power switch on. My laser comes on at full power and will not shut off using the software commands. I am wondering if there is a problem with the arduino controller.
Has any one had this issue and if so how do I fix it?
