Don't touch the Potentiometer (Pot) it is set at a certain
Laser Diode current. Playing with it could increase the current
to the LD and damage it...

Try what I sated in my PM reply...

This doesn't help you now - but if this is still not working at the end of the summer, I'll be moving back to the city you live in at the end of August. I would be happy to attempt to fix / look at this for you.
