Doesn't look like flux residue to me - it seems to have solid particles in it. It actually looks more like someone sprayed the thing with glue, sucked it up with a vacuum cleaner, fished it out of the bag and then sold it :D I have no idea what that crap on the driver board is, but it's definitely not a 'by product' of any normal manufacturing process.

I've seen crap like that in/on laptop components with fans that had been running for years in all sorts of environments, but since this unit has not active cooling of any kind i doubt it could be such contamination either.

Dude got me for $98 .. The refund period had expired because I kept letting him buy more time. At first it was back and forth email tag with "sorry, it's taking so long, yours will be sent first thing tomorrow! I promise! Here's your fake tracking number___" strung me out for months.$98 Lesson learned

That was a few years ago.. Folks were talking about just having Eitan send the parts and at least we'd have something.. Anything.. But then it was brought to light that he most likely didn't have any parts TO send. As he was using up the money from all the orders for other things first. Like happily take your money under the assumption that someday he would get his life together..

Unfortunely it wasn't the case of him being in hard time's and having to make ends meet. It's a nice thought though Chris.;)
He was shown in pic's to be having some NICE vacations such as Euro Disney and a I believe a Jetta with twin turbo's and the works. All surfaced after his scamming us. He's not a good man:(

Who was the person that was supposed to of repaired it for you? How long ago was this also? There are a few on here that volunteered of their own expense to repair his bad work and only charged shipping.

I thought grainde also was doing this for the customers of SciFi. I can't imagine someone charging you $252 then returning a non-functioning laser to you. If this is true, I also want to know how it was.

Hi,
Ok I just logged on and clear this up fast. He sent me the Arcane when I received it the diode and driver was shot. I replaced the diode and driver and rewired the contact board. And the total included shipping in two priority mail small flat rate boxes that wasn't cheap. Also when I shipped the build back it was all in satisfactory condition and working properly. I offered to have him send it back to me but he stated that he was disgusted and didn't want to have to pay the high shipping again.
Now if he is reading this post he can send it back to me and I will repair it for no charge to him he will only pay for shipping to Canada.
As all if you know I am a fair person and is always willing to help out as I have done with so many folks here .
If he contacts me I will work things out for him no problem. All my builds are tested many times before they are packed and shipped .

Thank you Rich:)
