Guys, I have been trying to fix my green laser pointer button, and in the process i was soldering the button, i accidently broke one of the wires leading into the laser head. it looks like there were 3 copper thin wires going from the circuit board into the laser head. One of then broke off..I do have a soldering iron and i tried to solder it but no success, how can i fix this..? is it fixable or will i have to buy a new green laser.. :(..

*I will upload pictures soon*

Thanks,

Niccoice

They aren't showing up. Try uploading to imgur.

From what I can see in the photos it looks fine. Can you get any closer?

Yeah, that's a short. Most likely you've fried the driver, and probably the diode too.

Why module ? Get whole new laser.
These hosts are not build to be dismantled again. While it can be done, it's very risky. I guess most of us killed their first green laser this way, I surely did. But I actually managed to fix it, lucky me.

Yeah you've raped it pretty good. Throw it in the broken laser box and buy a new one.
