Default Trying to get diode/module to power on

Hi,

I have a extracted module that I am trying to put in a different host. By reading and trying to make sense of all of this, am I soldering correctly (or do I even need too??) I'm so lost and so mad, and was hoping to have this working for tomorrow nights fireworks

* the pictured module is a random one (i don't know if its still alive or dead) i was trying the solder to see if i could get any power.



Here is the actual module I am trying to get working ( aluminum heatsink and brass tube are removed)

I don't know about the module but if you take better picture of the module people are more willing to help. This picture is useless.

PLEASE put some effort into your photos!

To do a quick test on a green module get a 2x AA holder and touch the positive wire to the brass and the negative to the spring.

And those pics are two different modules...

Well it's not gonna work if you have an empty spot in your battery holder. Put a wire or something across that spot.

Re read my post again. Red goes to the brass, black to the spring. You really shouldn't use 3 batteries though.

yeah that red light is the infrared, dont look at it, it will screw your eyes up. what i think has happened is you have somehow damaged your laser or it is a cheap chinese made one. best to buy a new one
