Yes, desolder everything on the board.
Oh. Ill have no problem with that.. The impatient's I have will get out weighed by my cheapness. Buying a new set of components will be entirely out of the question so I will def be taking my time.. Though waiting on something in the mail is an entirely different story.. I think ill start running an meet the package half way! Actually now that I think about it thats prob a bad idea :undecided:. I also purchased a blu-ray-red test load online for like 10 bucks, that seems like much less trouble than constructing my own although I have read its great soldering practice but for some reason I'd rather just buy one.Patients is the key with lasers. If you rush your work you are most likely going to damage something or make a mistake.
But i do understand being Inpatients when waiting to get something in the mail. Just make sure when you do get the parts you take it step by step so you will have a working laser at the end.:beer:
:tinfoil:Hey How bad did you break it. Post a Picture. Might be able to save it.Hah, woops... I was having some issues soldering things to the driver, and got a little too heavy-handed. Broke a piece right off the board, and I've now ordered another flashlight.
So yeah, guess I have a few more days to play with my 100mW greenie
I appreciate it, but the soldering point where the + wire goes completely snapped off. I plan to be a bit more careful next time...LtKernelPanic ^^ Great you got your light working. Too Bad your not going to turn it into a laser.:na:
