The aluminum foil trick does work, just be sure to put it on the correct side of the battery other wise you can/will create a short if it touches the inner wall of the host/battery tube.

Don't feel too dissapointed if you have to buy another unit. This hobby is rough and cheap ebay pens are worthless most the time. Don't feel bad. It happens to all of us! Honestly.. trying to fix a cheap pen is kinda a waste of time.

Default Re: Need Assistance with an odd issue - 5MW Green

Hey all, thankyou for your replies, advice and thoughts I haven't yet pulled it apart but I have found a weird thing thats happening that may pin-point my error, and may be exactly whats causing it, Ill try and explain it best I can.

Okay so I went out and bought Brand-New Batteries from the Hardware, opened the packet, chucked some in.. Tah-dah! Amazing quality, like I am talking outside in my yard with the sun, I can clearly see my beam.. Odd, because last night it wasn't working, so I unscrewed it and took the batteries out, put them the other way (Basically put the battery on top to the bottom, bottom battery to the top - If that makes sense) and Only IR, 0 power.. Swapped them back and Bam, working again. Little under what it was, like its acting as if it has less power.. I think the module is fine, I am beginning to think its a power issue, so would the Tin foil fix this? And where in the pen would I place it?

Thanks
- Cody

Also just swapped them back the other way and Nothing again, swapped them back and nothing, pen barely moved.. Also Shaking doesn't fix it.. I am almost certain its a power issue, could it be?

Sorry for the spam of replies but it has to be a power issue, every set of new batteries is ridiculous power for a few minutes, until eventually they dim down.. But are still with a lot of power, like they go from max to zero. Basically but my other laser registers the power.. I have no idea but this pretty much gets rid of my module and diodes being an issue?..Right guys? Haha!
