Default Whats wrong with my laser? o0

Hi! I have a green 50mW laser from dragonlasers.com, been really happy with it. But after it have been trough my friends' pesky fingers it now looks like its become out of focus of some sort, and a halo surrounds the main "dot"... The question is: Can it be fixed somehow? *:'(

That looks like simply a dirty lens. First, just try blowing it off (maybe with compressed air). Then get a lens pen and gently clean the lens. If that doesn't work, it is POSSIBLE that your friend just tried to "wipe" the lens clean and scratched it, but I think it is just dirty

Peace,
dave

It might also be water, if it is you'd have to open it up and either clean it up or dry it

I would have to see the actual unit, but I believe you are "borrowing trouble" before it has manifested. Use a modified Occam's Razor. Go with the easiest and simplest explanation first. Only if that fails do you go on to more involved, expensive, or dangerous explanations.

If the hoof print is found in Montana, it was probably NOT made by a zebra

Haha, Dave.... they're always telling us in med school "don't chase zebras!"

To the OP: could always contact Dragon Lasers and ask if they can clean and check it for you, especially if you think the lens is scratched, they could probably repair it for you.
