Thanks for the reply. I tried T2Laser. It rotates the servo perfectly when clicking laser on, but does not reverse with laser off. I took the servo out of its mount to not let it traverse too much. The machine should have the correct firmware (Grbl 0.9i), so I'm pretty lost again.

RE: eleksdraw servo trouble
eleksdraw servo trouble
I just assembled the eleksdraw I bought. It seems to work perfectly, except that the pen lifting doesn't seem to work. When I start drawing, the machine moves to the start position, sets the pen down by traversing the servo to the max, and then starts drawing, never lifting the pen. In the middle of segments, when the pen should be up, it only tries to travel even more to the same direction.
I found the solution of sending A1 before starting to draw, but that only made it so the servo no longer makes that horrible rattling sound when it continually tries to traverse too much. But it still won't lift the pen. What should I do?
