Default i just finished soldering my diode and. . .

ok so i finished soldering up my first laser and the rckstar circuit board gets really warm but the diode does not light up at all. If i killed it wouldn't it at least be dim and i accidentally soldered to the bottom because i am dumb so i resolderd it on the top and i know the ground is to ground and the positive leg is to the positive spot. So as of right now i am unsure of what i did wrong do tou all think i have a fauly diode or circuit board or what. thanks.

i am using four AA's so that should be 6 volts. And the circuit board i orderd a while back was set to 150ma so it will last long.

Lots of heat and no light . . . .sounds like a short. Check your soldering and the soldering on the board.

Peace,
