Thread: Cap IMPOSSIBLE to get off :(

    Default Cap IMPOSSIBLE to get off :(


    I've been trying to pot mod my 105 for some time now, I can't pot mod it via removing the button as there is a hard layer of plastic there, and so I tried to open up the laser instead..

    It is absolutely impossible, I have tried everything, turning, pulling, pliers, needles (wedging it open) etc.

    There is no gap to put a razer in between the cap to lift it open, is there ANY OTHER way of getting this laser open?? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

    here's a pic of the laser:

    and here are the details of it:

    Manufactured in 2004 for "Bigha Inc.", Made in Taiwan, and the S/N is: BI 002243

    I really need help please [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/help.gif[/img]

    I had the same pen laser and couldn't get it open either. I had to eventually saw the damn thing off and destroyed it during the process [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

    Ah well, its still a nice laser even how it is..

    Although, could anyone recommend a place I could find a MODABLE laser from for cheap?

    I have an identical pointer (but not manufactured for Bigha) that I could open but not without getting some scares. Maybe a detailed photo of what it is inside can help you.

    [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] With LaserMod's advice, I soldered the hard plastic under the button and managed to get to the pot, and after a quick rotation, I was done [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    The beam is fantastic now, easily 3 or more times brighter than before [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

    Thanks a lot everyone for their advice!
