Default Re: Laser broken?

If there's one thing I learned from medschool is that you do no give up until it is dead
If it were me, I'd try cleaning the diode with the method I mentioned, then if that didn't work, come back and ask you guys what I should do :P

Sadly, we were never taught what to do about the living dead.

A "zombie" diode is a diode that is basically dead but still emits some light. It will still draw current and make a lot of heat but it will never lase at full power again.
