Try Zax's software : T2laser, from there you can upgrade your firmware.

Incorrect depth w/drill - Z settings ?
I bought a 555 motor with the eleksmaker Z axis and I am trying it on easel, after a lot of tries, the Z values seems not correct : if I want to cut a 3mm thing I need to enter 4mm.
I am using the easel software and have the 1.1e gbrl, I haven't a z-probe but I think I am setting correctly my home position before carving and my material is plan and correctly attached on the "floor".
Any extra settings I didn't understood ? Anything to adjust the "power" of the Z axis to match the correct distances ?
RE: Laser power loss
Yes I'm quiet sure it is a failing diode too, I bought a Z axis that I received yesterday so I tried it. Impossible to cut 5mm plywood after 12 passes and when I break the wood on a line to see how it burned it is totally irregular : some parts are burnt on 4mm and just next to these parts it can be burnt on 2mm. I'm trying to see with banggood but i'm not waiting a lot from them as they are not even reading the explanations in my email... Anyway thanks a lot for your answers.
Laser power loss
I have a 5W diode unit from banggood that worked quiet well when I received it 2 months ago I could cut 3mm MDF in 4-5 passes but now it seems to have a power loss and I can't even cut the same 3mm MDF with 12 passes so I thought it came with a ventilation issue as the fan was showing weaknesses. I changed the fan for a new one and still have the same problem. I tried a new power unit more powerfull (6A) not changing anything.
Any idea where it can come from / any solutions ideas ?
Thanks by advance
RE: How to connect these cables (2500 mw ttl/ pmw laser unit)
I received my laser, it's a fake eleksmaker, the power says 5W. It comes with the exact same cables than in this post but I don't understand how to connect it. I tried with the yellow/black/red directly connected to the white plug on the left of "laser" on the mana board (as in the photo that is up).
It works during a few minutes but then, the laser shuts down and powers up again and shut down instantly, etc... i'm thinking : as it is heating it needs more power for the fans but the power adapter from the eleksmaker is probably not powerful enough. It's just a though maybe it's completely wrong!
Anyone knows how I should connect it with the external power source ?
Thanks by advance
PS : the laser board looks like this :
