Well, for starters it's obvious that the laser is CLEARLY not 2000mW.

I assume it's some $20 (+/-) laser you bought online? Well, it's clearly not strong enough to burn, because cheap lasers are weak lasers, and often wrongly labeled.

You want a laser that burns stuff? Build your own, or pay more money for a more powerful one.

And NO, you cannot "mod" your weak laser to be a powerful laser.

Right. So?

How exactly are we supposed to help you? You cannot turn your laser into more powerful laser.

You can maybe try using a magnifier glass to focus the beam when trying to burn matches, but if it doesn't work, there is nothing you can do except buy a more powerful laser.

Did you adjusted the focus? Most of 303 lasers are capable of burning, unless you received a true low power one or a defective one.

You can try to paint the match with a black pencil, adjust the focus twisting the cap, turn it on and point it to the match head, firstly put it near the aperture, and slowly move it away, at some point the match should burn.

Good advice. I also have a 532 303 and despite focusing it refuses to burn anything. Quality and output varies from a unit to unit...sounds like we ended up with duds.
