Hello, noob here. Recently bought a Galileo laser pointer from laser glow and was a little curious and decided to start unscrewing things mostly the body and into the diode and now it’s deciding to not turn on. I was curious if anyone else has opened their’s before and could direct me as to what’s happening. I did notice some gunk near the top where the diode and I think focusing lens was. Was that a chemical that turned the laser from IR into green? I thought it was normally crystals that did that but now I’m unsure. Any advice is greatly appreciated

I once had a problem with one of their pointers because the black coating was on the tail cap threads preventing good contact.

we are always glad to help out..however
An intro from you in newcomers section would be nice.
It is only a custom here--no way mandatory --You might even get some greets from members near you==nothing better than hands=on help. AND they will never ask you 'WHY LASERS?'
