    Default Galvo issue, help appreciated

    One of my Galvos suddenly stopped working right, if I turn on the unit the mirror goes to a unusual position, and does not move after

    Laserworld 1000rgb mark 2


    what i have discovered is that the broken galvo does not have a stop, so it can rotate the mirror 360 degrees.

    I think this also does the sensing of the position

    Default some plastic thing broken

    i just took off the back part of the galvo, and i found a loose piece of plastic...

    this looks to be the position sensing, and it also makes the axis not rotate full 360

    I've glued this back and my galvo moves again!

    i did put it back wrong, so need to reassemble once... (angle is wrong now)
