    if it still hasnt burnt out, u can try adjusting the POT settings on the bottom of the lens.

    Yes..but mark or measure it first.. Then It's only a tiny tweak in either direction..

    You can try measuring the resistance of the coils as well ( I haven't got a clue where to find a guide for the slimline..maybe the same place??) anything above 3 ohms and there is a chance.. Anything less usually means there has been a "mechachon crash" that has pushed too much current through the laser coils and caused shorted turns..

    info...http://www.cyber-mag.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=135

    Check everything you can find about the slimline laser fixes for chipping.. They usually have loads of info about lasers as totally incedental info.. Good Luck :)

    The v12 laser is disposable. They are not worth repairing and theres not much room for adjusting. You can buy them new for less than $20 in many places.
