Laser head banging on travel stops


#1

Hi There,

Complete novice here so excuse ignorance.

Just unboxed the Beamo and gone through the initial setup procedure but got to the camera preview setting but as soon as I clicked on the camera icon, as per page 25, the laser head tries to go to the back and keeps repeatedly hitting the stops. I have to switch off to prevent damage occurring.

Any ideas folks?

Further to my last message I tried the Maintenance button on the touch screen and the m/c tries to return to the rear but fails and has an error message “Homing Error, Please Check Limit Switch”.
No information on this subject in the handbook.

No longer a problem now.
I noticed the parking microswitch and pressed the pressed the actuating lever a couple of times and that seems to have solved the problem, although I have no idea why.
