    Hi, I have the following setup:

    Laser Show Quickshow

    Pangolin Flash Back 3 USB interface.

    2.5W ILDA Laser, full colour, I think digital. I think maybe 30,000 Hz.

    The laser works fine in Automatic Mode and Music Mode. But when I connect laser to the FB3 it doesn’t show any images/lasers at all. I’ve pressed an animation and even tried text, and clicked enable output. but it is still a blank image.

    The light on the FB3 Interface is green when the laser is not connected to the other end of the cable. The light is yellow when it is connected to the laser.

    The drivers are installed for FB3.

    I will point out that the interface cable socket on the back of the laser is slightly pushed inwards on one side, however I feel it is still getting a good connection.

    The laser and FB3 worked the last time I tried them about 3 months ago. But that was on a different laptop. I have a feeling it could be incorrect settings in Quickshow, but I’m not sure what they could be.

    I’ve tried various modes, beginner, intermediate etc and different laser settings, but no luck.

    Can someone point out any settings that I could be looking at?

    Do the above symptoms possible point to a break in my cable somewhere? (As I say I think the port is still fine, but I will repair it and then re-test.
