Trouble shooting

1-- Unable to connect to Software how to deal with this situation? smile
The software stays in waiting mode for 4 potential reasons:
A. Whether the drive is successfully installed
How to determine whether to install a drive successfully:
Plug the USB data line into the computer USB interface.
Click on the computer - my computer - Property - Device Manager - port, if you can find the CH340 port, indicating that the computer has identified the machine, drive installation successfully.
smile
B. USB data line is out of function
B-1. Computer USB interface has bad contact. You can try to replace the computer USB interface, or replace the computer
B-2. Data line is defect. Replace a data line
C. If the machine is turned off, or dormant, computer can not recognize the machine as well. In this case ,you need to re-boot the machine . The method is: Press on the small red button behind the machine, or press on the red button on the top of the machine to finish the booting. The machine will automatically reset the laser under weak light condition, enter the standby mode.
D. Open the software repeatedly. If you open the software without closing it, then open the software again. There will be out of connection. In this case, turn off all the software and re-open the software.
E. You'd tried above all and still failed. Please turn off the machine and the computer again. This may be that the system has not yet accepted the new driver and needs to restart the computer.

2--Can not search the machine with cell phone?
A. Ensures Bluetooth enabled for mobile phone system
B. Turns off the app software and start it again. Possibly the Bluetooth signal is cached by another phone to cause the signal receiving failure.
C. The machine is out of power. Restart the machine.
D. After 30 minutes charging, the machine is out of power

3-- With I-phone, the transmission time is so long.
Since the program base on Bluetooth 4.0BLE and apple mobile data transmission is very slow. It takes about 2-4 minutes. It is recommended that data be transmitted using Android phones while Apple phone can be used as controls.

4-- The machine works, but it doesn't carved out
Mainly root cause to below few aspects:
A. If the material is suitable for carving. Like the stone, pure metal, transparent, light, adding flame retardant materials of plastics are not suitable for carving. And if material is white, since there is some degree of astigmatism, figure carving effect might not be good either.
B. If the object is placed flat enough. If the surface of the object is uneven, or there're a lot of voids, this material is not suitable for engraving
C. If the object is well fixed. If the object has not been fixed by the rubber band or silica gel pad, it is very easy to make the engraving picture position deviated during engraving.
D. If the focus is well adjusted. The essence of the engraving machine is to focus the image by heat treatment, so you must well focus the laser to produce enough burning power.
E. If ignition timing is set properly. If the ignition time is too fast, it may cause un-complete burning in such a short time.
F. laser tube may burn out. There's life span for the laser tube, if it had been overload used, poor PM or even careless operation may finally lead to laser tubes burned.

5-- Why does the machine keep hitting a straight line?
The chassis is driven by a stepper motor. If the weight of the load is too heavy, the motor will not be able to complete the drive. Please reduce the weight of the engraving object.

6--The machine driver is broken, what should I do?
The product parts can be found at the official website www.trusfer.com replacement, please make sure you have practical ability to replace it on your own. Or you should go to repair centre.

7--How to fix the engraved objects?
3options
1. Use the rubber band (sent in random);
2. Place the silicone pad on the bottom plate and place the object directly on the silicone pad (recommended) as shown below (the black silicone pad sent in random):
smile
3. The user designs the card slot on his own.

8—How to do when it can not focus on?
There are 4 potential reasons listed as below:
A. Object has been placed beyond the scope of the machine can focus. Normally, the laser tube focus range is around 5cm diameter on in the bottom plate .
B. The object is transparent, unable to focus. In this case, you can use the whiteboard pen to turn the object surface to black to support focusing. Then wipe it up after curving.
smile
C. If the material is a little transparent, you can use gray cardboard to cover on the object's surface to support the focus adjustment.
D. Laser tube light attenuation, poor spot may also lead to non focus

9--How many pictures can the machine store?
It can store only one picture that last sent to the machine;

10---How to choose engraving position?
Firstly, place the object to the middle of the bottom board.
The software provides 3 positioning tools:
10-1. Point positioning,
10-2. Position in the middle of the image,
10-3. Box positioning, can preview the engraving position in advance. Together with the direction key control, the control of any position can be realized.

11---How to set the depth of carving?
The depth of carving is determined by two factors:
1.Whether the focal length is fine;
2.Set the burning time (the longer time, the greater the depth, the slower the time)

12—what could I do if there’s no power during engraving?
There's memory function in engraving machine. If power shortage, you can stop it, and continue the engraving from breakpoint after charging.

13---What to do if the focusing glasses is rickety and loosen?
The lenses are fixed by the spring with which during caving, there'll be enough power to support the stability lenses. And such level of rickety will not influent to the carving quality .And in order to ensure the focusing process can be relatively simple, focusing ring slot has been designed with specific tolerance and margin. If you accidentally drop the lenses, you can re-spring it in.

14--- If you want to have a high quality level of engraving effect?
The effect of engraving is determined by many comprehensive factors:
A. The properties of material itself
B. focal length
C. ignition time
D. If operate conform to the imaging principle: If the object has been placed flat enough, does it affect machine work?
etc.
Keep study, and master the knowledge slowly to complete the DIY, finally you can get what you want.
