Default (-) Pin broke off my PHR-803T :(

So i was Happily lasing my 150ma PHR Diode when all the sudden it went blank.
i thought the diode had died so i began to check for the problem.
First i unplugged the battery. then i found the culprit was the Rkcstr Driver Had broken the Negative pin completely off the diode. So What can i do now ? the pin is still solder onto the driver.
Thanks

I think you mean the culprit was yourself breaking the pin off the diode, the rkcstr driver didn't break the pin off.

and you can try taking the diode off the driver and soldering another pin on the negative. i've found using liquid silicone after you get the pin on helps keep it on there. the silicone drys overnight and keeps the pin on. then you can solder the diode back on.

good luck,
Kendall

The negative pin is not case ground, so it will be a lot harder to reattach.

Well it was not the Drivers Fault of course,or mine. It Just Broke so i guess it was Natural Cause's Fault.
But i guess ill just sell the box laser, it had a 150ma Rkcstr driver adn a nice switch. i used the "Sure"
5mw module, and i found it was harder to put a Driver in that small Moudle. But if anybody wants the laser and can fix it, its worth at least 30$ for the driver,case,battery,swtich,9v clip, my time making it,the
module,and the broken diode (well Technically its not broken, But Physically yes).

NO!!! IT IS NOT SCREWED!!! I have soldered a wire to a pin that was flush with the diode. DO NOT THROW IT AWAY.

I thought it would be impossible to solder to the pin without it touching the case and it is BUT remember that the case (as far as I can tell) is not grounded to anything that would brake it. ;D

Even if its "experimental" the diode will still work just fine. It took a little bit to much heat but it didn't really damage the diode like I thought it would.

...to put that another way, as the case of the LD is isolated you can safely connect your ground pin to it and it will work again.

You need to carefully remove the LD from the driver, clean up the area around the broken pin with a fiberglass cleaning pen or a small fine file (needle file), then with a well loaded soldering iron bridge the gap from the isolated, snapped off, pin base to the case of the LD, you can now reattach the driver using the spare LD pin as the neg...

Default Re: (-) Pin broke off my PHR-803T :(

Considering you probably attach the case to ground anyway, why not just jumper (connect by solder) the (-) pin to the case of the diode and be done with it?

He mentioned it was a PHR diode which i'm assuming is the 803 'bluray'. The power on those is through 2 isolated pins and not the case.

It's still possible to solder a connection onto the pin stub but you'll need a good eye, fine tipped soldering iron, steady hand and alot of luck

You can just drop a spot of solder over the broken pin and then solder the negative lead to the case pin. All you are doing with this method is the same thing we do when we solder the negative pin AND the case pin together. The case then provides the &quot;ground&quot; to the broken negative pin.

Default Re: (-) Pin broke off my PHR-803T :(

So from what i read, all i do is solder a blob onto the Negative pin which is still attached to the driver, then solder that to the case pin. but if the case pin does nothing,how will it get power to the Negative pin ?

By putting the &quot;blob&quot; of solder OVER the broken pin, you are grounding the negative pin to the case. The case pin can then be used for the negative connection to the driver.

Wes--

Just unsolder the diode from the driver, and drop a little blob of solder onto the place where the case pin used to be (the little metal dot inside the black ring). You have now grounded your negative pin. Then, just use your case pin as a negative.
