Hey i got a laser not to long ago then just suddenly it just stopped working. Changed the batteries and such but nothing even lights up in the diode. I think the diode just blew but i only had it for 2 days, any help?

If it is really a dead diode, there is nothing you can do. You can check every connection in the laser AND check it for shorts, but a truly dead diode cannot be brought back from the dead to its former lasing glory.

Peace,
