The Jumper above pin 15 and 5V in the first picture may need to be set to pull-up, i.e. jumper pin 2 to 3

Not sure if you are in the USA or not.

One of the first things I would personally do is make the wiring more correct.
I assume the power cord is the beige cable with three wires, the white and black wires should supply the 220v and the green should be the ground wire connected to terminal 9
The 4 wires to the spindle I am unsure of as I don't have its connector for reference, but whichever wire seems electrically connected to its case should be the ground wire.


Try following the instructions in this link

You are trying to use the Profile toolpath

You probably need to use the Quick Engraving Toolpath
