Source for spare parts?



  • After my first module stopped working, I bought a replacement. Unfortunately, this new replacement did not appear to work either, until I finally realised (thanks to this forum and benboxlaser.us forum) that it was actually the driver from my original 2.5W laser that was causing all the issues and both my laser modules themselves work fine.

    So my only options to get my laser back up and running now (without spending a lot of money) is to either repair the driver board or replace it. Since I don't have any experience with repairing any sort of circuitry, I need to find a replacement driver board.

    Is there anyone here who may know of anywhere that may sell these boards? or even have suggestions of how to repair the board?

    This seems to be the model

    Could these cracks be a culprit possibly?

    This is the driver board I mean, on a 2.5W laser with PWM

    @yankers
    Looks like an inductor damaged,Model is 10UH,we have this driver board, if you want to get a new,you need pay for shipping by yourself.
    but If you buy less than 3 months from Banggood,You can ask for a free replacement



  • @EleksMaker I'm fairly sure I bought it from banggood less than 3 months ago, so I will email them and request a replacement.
    Just in case the request with banggood doesn't work out, how much would it cost with shipping for the board?



  • @EleksMaker I just checked, and I am unfortunately 6 days past the 3 month deadline, so would you be able to let me know the pricing for a new board, or send me a personal message with the price? That'd be great, Thanks


  • EleksMaker CEO

    @yankers you can email to john@eleksmaker.com
    We will send one to you, but need to charge cost and shipping.



  • @EleksMaker okay, thankyou very much



  • Did you ever get a repair? I'm within 2 months of purchase from banggood, but they refuse to help me, they just keep asking for videos of the machine not working and then don't reply. My machine ran for less than an hour before the laser quit working. It now turns on but doesn't have enough power to engrave anything.

    How much was the board and shipping if you got it, and did it fix your problem?



  • @mostlydave I have had my laser for more than 3 months so I knew I wasn't going to get any free replacements, and I don't think anywhere sells the driver boards I need separately and commercially, but Eleksmaker has contacted me and are willing to arrange with the manufacturer to send me the board by itself at my cost ($10). I can't speak for anyone else, but I call that good service from Eleksmaker on their part
