I ran my laser at a higher current than recommended and now it doesn't work.

Problem:

The laser was run at a higher current than recommended by making changes to the Emblaser board dip switches.

It ran for a little bit and then stopped working or only turns on at very weak power.

 

Cause:

Running the laser at a higher current level than recommended will cause the laser diode to be permanently damaged.

See this article for recommended laser current settings: Link

 

Solution:

Replace the Laser Unit.
