Thompson Potentiometer (Pot) Adjustment

This is not for the novice, this tutorial assumes a certain level of knowledge and delicacy while working with the components.  As well as the good sense to not plug it in while opened.  Read the warning on the drive.  Do this at your own risk,  Theory:  The pot on the laser unit itself tells the laser how bright to shine (think of it like a valve on a faucet, the further open the more water flows).  In the case of the DVD drive, the lower the number on the pot the brighter the laser shines
