Default Key Lock is Broken...

Hello All,

Well I am new here although after many days of reading I can see it is a very thorough resource.

Here's my big problem. The key lock on my 250mW Green Portable laser from Sky Lasers has ripped off of the circuit board and just easily threaded out. Let me assure you that this was entirely unintentional. Also the contacts, where it was soldered to, are on the underside of the board and i can't see or reach them from the hole it came out of.

I've been looking around and can't find any "easy" way to fix it. It looks like everything just threads together but must be glued cause its stuck.

Hopefully there is some insight out there that can help.

joe

Most of these do unscrew, but are very tightly screwed together. You could try clamping it in a vise using something soft like pine-wood carved out to fit, as a cushion, to get a better grip on the head. If you can't do that, you may have to send it back for repair...

LOTS of lasers!

Honestly, I am not addicted to lasers; I can turn them off any time I want to.

Ya right now I'm in a back and forth with the company to see what they can do. They say this is the first they have heard of anything like this.

PS. I already almost ripped the skin on my hands trying to get it apart. Didn't even flinch.
