Default Laser diode broken!! HELP!

Hi everyone,
I am new to this forum and my recent hobby has become burning lasers..
I have a green diode which I took from a disco light device and I want to make a burning laser from it. However, I accidentally broke it!!
The wires were connected to a copper chip(please try to understand) onto which there was another cylindrical chip with a crystal embedded in it.
The crystal thingy was glued on the chip to keep it attached, but it came off!!
Now the laser is not starting!! Can I repair it?? Help please!!
Btw, the laser is class 3B.

You know the saying. "A picture is worth a thousand words" so pics

And seeing this is your first post let me be the first to Welcome you to a great community.

Welcome and enjoy your stay.

I personally don't have much experience with diodes so you might have to wait a bit for the more experienced members to chime in

If you are referring to the DPSS crystals that came loose, it would be better to just buy a new laser. Also, if you want a green burning laser, modding a low powered laser usually won't work.

Isn't there any other way?
The crystal was just glued onto the chip... ????

It is trash
Throw it away and get a new module
When you take things apart without knowing how they work, you learn, but you also take a chance
This time you lost
Suck it up

They are all over eBay

Peace,
