Default Advice? Servicing 2w RGB projector

Hey Everyone,

I currently have 2 2w RGB lasers running Pangolin but I'm finding that I have issues with both. One it appears that the red module has dimmed out and is in need of repair as it no longer produces yellow/orange images like the other does. But the other laser is overall dimmer, I believe it may just need an adjustment because the light seems to be not hitting dead center as it should.

I live in Southern California, but I am curious to know if someone can provide advice to how I could go about repairing these.. it is common to repair them or just replace them?

I am not super tech savvy but I am determined.

Any advice would be appreciated. I am willing to replace the modules myself but what all entails in doing so.. Is there programming/configuring? Are there tutorials available?



Thanks!

The best place to start would be to open it up and determine what you have inside first, and maybe take some pictures to post here
Can't answer much without knowing more.

Diode lasers are typically easy to repair. Unless your projectors are old and have a red DPSS system rather than a diode laser there's little need to replace it completely.
