Default How to fix my 50 mW green laser?

I bought this 50 mW green laser yesterday and I've been using it almost the entire day.
I wanted to use it again today, but there's no beam anymore, only a little red light. I already checked with the camera of my phone:

Can someone help me please?
Thank you

Change or charge your batteries.

Then let us know if it still does the same thing.

Don't look at the dim red light!
Did you drop it or bang it?
Green lasers are powered by an IR diode that then goes through a set of crystals to produce the green beam. If those crystals become misaligned then you will be lef with only IR. That is just one of the reasons your laser might have died...

Default Re: How to fix my 50 mW green laser?

So if I would be able to align the crystal in the correct place, it might shine again?
But how is that done? Just twisting and turning?

on lasers like that they are not adjustable.. I'd return it if you've only had it for a day..

Default Re: How to fix my 50 mW green laser?

Returning is the best option. 50mW probably still has combined crystals, so my guess would be that the diode is not aligned (not close enough) to the crystals.
