Default Fuzzy beam... Whats wrong?

There is a speckled circle of laser light around the beam.... This link should show you the pictures.... http://laserpointerforums.com/member...ms/fuzzy-beam/

I tried cleaning the lens but that had no effect. Anyone know how to fix this?

Did you clean the glass diode lens?

I'd like to hear what the pros use.

Usually caused by dirty lenses and reflections from the beam on the walls of the interior of the host. They're more noticeable because the laser makes their appearance sharp. Try cleaning the lens with isopropyl alcohol and a soft cloth or cotton swab.

Yes... I cleaned the lens both inside and out with alcohol and a swab... But I'm afraid to clean the lens directly on the diode.... I'm afraid of alcohol getting down in the works.... I added a picture of the lens I'm afraid of cleaning.

Then just use a dry microfiber cloth and fold it so you get a nice corner/point. Get it to touch the window, and use circles to clean it...

Keep laser/lens in a dry place. Going from hot to cold or vis versa will cause fog on the glass... Dust or smoke can fog the glass also. Try to keep smoke from hitting your laser and its lens...

Its prob just your crystals coming out of place though or setting in...
