At least it was a DIY, not a store bought laser.

When a store bought laser blows, your wallet breaks. Though... when a DIY laser blows, your heart breaks :(

Hey! to cheer yourself up, you should have a party --

I mean, you have got the balloons already, right?

All you need now is some music and some dancing girls

Peace,

SORRY BOYS NO PARTY TODAY i have just finished my DIY Blu-Ray to discover that may be dead aswell :'( :'(

2 lasers in one day is that even possible??

it did not even work for a second it was dead all along

and daguin i was very strict with the amount i used my ;aser but when it died it had been on for less than 30 seconds lmao "shocker"

i am soo sad 2 lasers in one day both diy's and both my first one red and one blue !!!

maybe im not cut out for lasers but i do have a 10mW orange in the post maybe that will cheer me up

or a spending spree i might just go to DX and get a DX 200mW for $43 lmao

EDIT daguin i think you may be right i may build a new one lol i am just so suprised at 2 being dead within 2 minuits "literally" lol

When you say the blu ray is dead do you mean not even an LED?

Humour me, set your meter on diode test, connect the leads to the 2 correct pins of the LD if meter reads zero swap the wires around, do you get a reading.... 1.45 ish???
If so you may find that there is still hope...if zero both ways it is dead.

Have you measured voltages to see that you have it wired correctly?

Test your LD by setting the meter up as shown, just put the leads onto the pins of the LD and follow previous instructions.......

For ma you need to put a 1ohm resistor between the drive circuit and the LD...scrub that put the resistor between the + of the battery and the drive circuit, set the meter to "200 mv" (that is 1 click to the right of "off"), connect one lead to each end of the resistor, with the power on the reading on the meter is ma.
