    Is the green light blinking slowly or quickly?

    After the activation, once you removed the damaged cartridge and blade, did you crank the elevation all the way down to reset the trip mechanism and then back up to install the new cart and blade?

    That happened to me and it ended up that the new cartridge was faulty and couldn't lock in properly. My supplier replaced it and that did the trick. No flashing lights
    Recheck that the cartridge is locked in properly.

    I had a problem when I had to change a brake. It turned out that the riving knife was too close to the blade. But call Sawstop tomorrow and they should be able to walk you through how to fix it.

    And, just to be sure, you did push in the paddle after the activation, didn't you?

    Go into the world and do well. But more importantly, go into the world and do good.

    As you probably saw, this is the "no blade rotation code". Obviously if it's starting to spin up, it's not something like a belt, etc. But unfortunately it can be any part from the switchbox to the cartridge that's causing the issue where it's not actually sending the blade rotating. At one point I had the same problem and ended up having to replace the cable from the switch to the cartridge.

    You're going to have to leave it up to tech support, but my experience is that they are quite responsive.

    Do you have a dado cartridge? If so try that. If it works then you'll know its the new cartridge. That's how I found out my new cartridge was faulty
