Default Re: Lava Micro FlexDrive Driver (lavadrive2) fits

I may need a house call, Doctor. My lavadrive arrived and as I was soldering leads on the battery side, I created a solder bridge between the two leads on the board. To clear that, I just flicked the iron quickly. That worked great - and it also took the SMD device just downwind with it. Whatever device that is has now become a part of my carpeting somewhere. Should I just apply the soldering iron to my eye and order another flexdrive, or are there other options? Thanks,


JeffP

I placed my order through Google Checkout on May 28th. Google checkout says it still has not been shipped. Are the low range drivers back-ordered?

Thanks

Speaking of caps... Is it adviseable to drop an electrolytic cap across the LD leads as in the DDL driver, or is your driver going to provide all the smoothing I would ever need? The docs included with the lavadrive 2 do not specifically address that. Thanks,

Default Re: Lava Micro FlexDrive Driver (lavadrive2) fits

I built a blu-ray pointer w/ one of these drivers. I noticed when moving the laser quickly, it produces a dashed line. I'm guessing this is the regulator? Let me know, because if not, I have a loose part in my pointer.

thanks

Default Re: Lava Micro FlexDrive Driver (lavadrive2) fits

it was a low battery.
It's a 3v lithium, and I've discharged it down to 2.5. Hope that's not too far.

Default Re: Lava Micro FlexDrive Driver (lavadrive2) fits

actually, I just put a new battery in it, and it's still producing a dashed line. Much less pronounced than w/ the exhausted battery, but still a dashed line.

the spacing on the dashes is consistent, so I don't think it's a loose connection.

This is a single 3v cr123 cell w/ a blu-ray.

I have no idea how fast I'm moving the laser, but the line is about a foot -on dash, then about 1/4 inch off -.-.-.-.-.-.-.

as my last battery died, the off dashes got longer and longer until they were about even on/off - - - - - -

Any ideas?

You must have received one of the pre-release super pulse mode drivers! congratulations!
I wouldn't worry about it too much unless it bothers you. can you give more details about your build specifics?
