Have you checked to make sure the mode switch wasn’t accidentally moved?
MODE SELECTOR SWITCH The driver board has a selector switch for the two different modes of the board. Input Control Mode: This is when the switch is on the RIGHT. This mode allows for a signal to be connected to connectors H2 or H4 for a signal to turn the laser on and off. Use this input with your controller to turn the laser on and off with G Code commands. CW Mode: This is when the switch is on the LEFT. This mode stands for "Constant Wave", which means that the laser will turn on and stay on until the switch is turned back to the right or the power on the board is turned off.
