Default 445 diode/ module repair

Hey, i bought a fully set up 445 unit from someone who bought it a while ago from garoq

im wondering if anybody can help me fix it if i paypal you and mail it to you like overnighted

soooo...i was cleaning it and i accidentally broke the diode {cracked lens }

so..i removed pill assembly and the one of the wires coming out of the 1.25A buck driver inside the pill broke off ..(one of them.. the other looks loose)

so im left wiTH:: a broken 445 diode in a axis module and in a heat-sync(which i dont have the allen wrench to remove off the module)
AND:: a pill containing a buck driver which has one of the leads broken off of it.

is there anywAY i can send it to somebody like overnight shipping on monday and you can fix it and get it running again?

heres a pic

It might be possible to completely remove the diode window, and as long as nothing inside is broken it will continue to work. hopefully a member will step up to help you out. I don't like to repair other peoples work unless it's a last resort.

PM a member here named flaminpyro. He can decan it, clean it, resolder it, or whatever you need. Hes honestly a blast to deal with, and does quality work. Just ask nicely, and I'm sure your module will be back up and running in no time!

He might be out of town since it is the holidays. There are some members here from Texas also that would be closer since Flaminpyro lives n Oregon.
http://laserpointerforums.com/members/hakzaw1/ is from Texas if he can't fix it he will know someone who can.

Default Re: 445 diode/ module repair

update guys
i got the heatsync off the axis module finally!!
and i got the diode out of the axis module...

so it looks like i will need a NEW** pill w/ round 1.2A driver connected to a NEW**diode, and i should be able to pop it in the axis module and put that into the heatsync myself..

waiting for Garoq's pm to get some parts

You made the diode smoke?

I'm sorry man, but that diode is toast.
