Default When I power on my laser driver, this is my diode.

It is lighting up, but very very faint. You can only see it if I place my camera directly above the focusing lense. Here is a photo I took. Is it getting enough power? Should I try 9 volts instead of 6?

Default Re: When I power on my laser driver, this is my diode.

Why are you leaving out all the pertinent information?

Which diode? Which driver? What power source? What set-current?
