This is the only way I have done the build, but there are other ways. You just have to have good contact from the host to the negative side of the FlexDrive, and good contact from the center contact on the circuit to the positive side of the FlexDrive input.

Then the output leads to the diode...

I am using the metal ring, the only thing I don't use is the o ring because it just will not fit together with it. I didn't trim the metal ring so I could be completly sure that it is making contact with the board and the host.

If you look at the board there are two tracks as you say. There is an outer one and the inner one, at one point the inner track turns and conencts to the spring and so does the outer track.

I will give it a test with my multimeter when im home, if I am lucky thats all the problem is... It was working yesterday when I connected the diode to the driver so I could test it.

Edit: The metal ring does make contact with the outer side of the board and the little solder rectangles. Thing is if its all wired up correctly and theres something wrong between the diode and driver then having it powered on to test it with a multimeter will be damaging the flexdrive even more.

Default Re: Tutorial - My 'Pocket Pal' Blu-ray Laser!

Do your testing with only the DMM on the setting for checking continuity. Where you can hear a 'beep' when there is continuous contact.

Just check from the outer contact points on the board to your FlexDrive negative input. Then check from the center of the board to your FlexDirve positive input.

Also, check that the it does not beep from negative board contact, to positive FlexDrive input...

Ok, I gave it a check over before I left work and it was a bad conenction.

It works now although there is an issue with the contact where it doesn't turn on unless I force the heatsink down a little so I may give it a try with the o ring.

Yep!

That's why I use the o-ring, as a spacer to give a tight fit for the heatsink, and good pressure on the 'ground to host'...

Awesome

90mW of blue ray is nice, it has a pretty good beam as well.

Seeing as my 2nd host appears to be broken now I may turn that into another pocketpal :P

Tempted indeed.

I have two spare reds laying around though, one is going in another pocket pal and the other being turned into a laby.

That sounds like the same dimensions as the sku 46 heatsink.

You could order one and try it, or just send me the host to be sure...

Mine appears to be somewhat dim now, not dim to the point where you cant see it or the battery issue I mentioned in another post. Its sort of in between the two... Like from 90mW down to 20mW for example...

I have tried a few different batteries and its the same for all of them...
