Laser was cutting fine and then laser stopped working while it was still moving. There seems to be a strange whistle-hissing noise from the laser box when it should be cutting (when it is running).

The last time there were strange noises it turned out to be arcing from the HT lead (obviously only check this if you know what you're doing around super-high voltages)

I've had a look at Gerald and there appears to be arcing coming from within the Power Supply for the Laser Tube.

We had another High Voltage PSU left over from #165 that was likely to be working, so I replaced the faulty PSU in Gerald and lo and behold, Gerald is back working again.
