Default Repair

A few years back I purchased a beautiful 1.3w 405nm laser from SciFi Lasers (Eitan). Long story short, I let a friend borrow it for a lab and he put the batteries in backwards.

Needless to say, the laser no longer works - and it appears SciFi Lasers has since shut its doors. I'm assuming it's just the driver that's blown, but I can't be sure.

Honestly I'm not too certain of the details outside of it being a 1.3w 405nm in a custom (largish, metallic) host that takes two 18650 batteries (can provide pictures if requested). Would anyone be interested in taking a look and seeing what they can do with it? If so, please let me know your charge.

Thank you and regards,
-Lurkios

The driver is probably fried. Any experienced builder here can likely fix it for you.

Did he actually tell you that was 1.3W 405nm? No way is that accurate. It is likely between 700-100mW which is still a lot of 405nm

Do you have an experience with repairs? Have you built anything of your own? Would you kindly show some of your work? Seems a bit suspicious that up until a day ago, all of the items in your signature were "dead".

Incidentally, since when are plasma cutters rated in milliwatts?

He did, and included a printout from an lpm as well. I don't have any way to verify it myself, currently. (Especially not seeing as it's broken.)

This is assuming I'm not somehow remembering completely wrong. I've since deleted the mails.

Could you also post a LPM photo of your "50mW" 593.5nm. I've never seen any read that high(in a handheld) :/

Yea a quick scour of the wayback machine I can only find 20mW 593.5 nm yellow orange laser.

Now that's not to say they may not have made on custom but I wanna see proof.

Can't say enough... Pman from this forum went out of his way. Took my non-working scifi laser and sent me back 3.3 watt cannon!

Hooked me up on the repair on the cheap and did a GREAT job!


Thank you Thank you Thank you
