Default Laser not getting full potential.

Im using a Mitsubishi ML101U29 diode with a adjustable x-driver.

This is not in a host except built on a bread board and powered by a 12v wall power supply.

Everything is soldered for the best contact.

Driver has been tested with a load and is putting out .200ma which is what i wanted it set at.

12v going into the driver, and 12v coming out of the driver when no diode connected.

BEFORE when I connected the diode, it was putting out about 7v but now its only a little over 2v.

Did I short my driver or whats going on?
The laser diode is coming on but not to its full potential.

You posted this same thread with a slightly different name yesterday:

Just because no one answered, does not mean you should make a duplicate thread the very next day.

Oh well, I cant delete the other. Figured Id add it to the general section instead of just the red laser considering its more of a general question.
