Drop it and try it but dont go any lower than 2.8K If that doesn't work you'll have to replace the laser.

i have ordered a new laser because i ant get to work


Sometimes the POT tweak isn't enough to help. Had to buy a few replacement lasers myself, best of luck installing!

I dont have a soldering gun if i just heat up a screwdriver on the stove and melt the solder away and before it dries remove it will that work? i know the point is to uncover the 3 soldering points so i dont see why it wouldt work

Because that screwdriver would need to be well over 600-700 degrees in order to remove that solder, which won't happen.

Im glad you know so much about soldering. Guess who just removed the antistatic ball with a flat head heated up on the stove and yes it works.

Ladies and gentleman, no doubt, the most moronic way to solder. Bravo. Of course it works. A soldering iron is a metal rod being heated from the inside out. You have no control doing what you did and if the solder went solid while you tried to pull it off, you'd be screwed.

Not to mention that the screwdriver is no useless as a screwdriver, the quality of the work is probably terrible, and that will probably be the only time that he will have success with that "method"

actually the quality of the work looks completely fine as soon as i touched the screwdriver to the solder it just fell right off no mess. i know it may not be the right way to do it but i do not own a soldering iron.

It may look fine but some one else would have to judge that, plus just cause it looks good doesn't mean its electrically fine. You may be OK but I wouldn't get in a habit of doing that.
