Problem. The DX greens have APC (automatic power control) that uses the photodiode, so you will not get any benefit by pot modding it. Plus the pot isn't actually connected.

There are several versions green lasers that DX sells. On many of them the pot does nothing. You have to confirm which you have. Post a clear pic of the PCB.

it's the last item in the optical train, it's a small piece of glass which redirects some light to a small sensor with a green and orange wire attached to it, all u gotta do is rip it off
