Default How do I open up the dx30?

I recently received my dx30 and there is a very noticeable dimming between the dx30 and romisen 30mw.
It starts out really bright and then dims down to, what looks like, 5mw.

I was trying to think of solutions to fix it and I thought maybe turning up the potentiometer would work. This way it would be really bright, and then go down to 30mw. However I dont know how to go about opening up the laser.


Any suggestions?

Thx

Default Re: How do I open up the dx30?

For my DX True 50, I increased the temperature of the laser and changed the batteries to freshly recharged AAA Energizer NiMH batteries. They seem to have higher load tolerance than alkalines. (i.e. my digital camera lasts longer on NiMH batteries.)

Don't open the laser unless you know what you're doing. the DX lasers are glued shut.

But most likely there won't be a pot on your laser, even if there is it most likely won't do anything. The real problem is either batteries aren't the best or it is sensitive to temperature.

ok thanks..

I JUST bought another 8 package of aaas and they are all the same. After that I bought some aaa batteries and a charger, charged them, and still no luck with dimming.

I think I got a defective one. : /

Just RMA it, they are very helpful at DX (downside, due to shipping you'll have to wait another month)
