If your laser is not responding once you've pressed "start", you may need to update your firmware. Below you will find step-by-step instructions outlining how to update your firmware and solve this easily fixable problem.
First, you need to request a firmware update from the Trotec Technical Support team: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can then install the updated firmware via Windows Explorer or JobControl® using the following step-by-step instructions...
Step 1: Open the Firmware-Update '.exe' file in Explorer
Open the program "FirmwareUpdate.exe" by double-clicking the left mouse key.
Step 2: Start and end the update
Next, click "Connect", then click "Send".
Now wait until the update is finished before clicking "OK".
Step 1: Preparation
Start JobControl®. Now, switch off the laser machine and open its lid. Then, switch the machine back on.
Step 3: Select the Trotec Firmware-Update data file
Select the Trotec update data file you requested with the "Load" command.
Step 4: Start and end the update
Select the "Send" command and wait until the update has completed.
CAUTION: Never press the "Cancel" button during an update!
Do not operate your laser machine during a firmware update.
To end the update, click "OK".
Step 5: After the firmware update
Turn the laser machine off.
Close the lid.
Switch the machine back on.
> The laser machine should reference the axes
Boot up JobControl® and connect back to the laser machine.
Click "Settings" and "Information".
Now, if you receive an 'error' message, carry out the entire update again.
