Exclamation Pmr Virtue Laser Eye Problem

Hey Guys,

I just installed my new Virtue laser eyes, because i had a rollback
problem and some people said it just could be my eyes. So i just installed
laser eyes and my rollback problem is now cured.

so now my problem with my laser eyes is with my eye plate not sitting
flush with my marker. my left eye plate fit like a glove, but on my right
side i have a problem. I couldn't even get my screw to grab the threads.

So i looked at the right eye, and you can see a slight little gap between
the bulb and the flat surface its attached to. so i looked at my left eye
and there is no gap there, and that one fit perfect. So i just put some
pressure on my right eye plate to hope i could grab the threads, and i did
but my eye plate does not sit flush. but i tested everything out and eyes
work great, also no more rollback problem.

so what could i do to get my right eye plate flush?

How could i fix that gap between my eye bulb and
the flat surface?

Any suggestions are great.
Thanks again guys.

the problem is that the virtue eyes have a large amount of solder where they apply the led to the eye ribbon..

you can go about fixing this one of two ways... which eye covers do you have? do you have the stock composite ones or aftermarket aluminum ones?

if composite then you can take a dremel or a file and remove some of the solder on the eyes and this will make them more flush (i have personally done this method and it works fine.. just be careful and do not take too much off..)

if you have metal eye covers you can drill out some of the recessed area where the eyes are on the eye covers themselves.. be careful to not drill all the way through the eye covers as this would just be plain silly

good luck and i hope that helps you..

edit... and i think the reason the eyes "fixed" your roll back problem was possibly due to faulty eyes.. or mis aligned eyes... but i am glad you got it working...

Wow lot of info, you know our stuff man, hah
Thanks alot faith for your help, i do have metal
eye plates, them came with the pmr se. i'll try
these methods out, and get back to you.

Why are after market eyes such a pain,
nothing ever goes the right way with
anything! hah jesus.

but does it really matter if the eye plate isn't
flush? just more cleaning time huh.

Thanks a lot man!

if you have metal eye plates i have heard about the contact on the eyes touching the plates and causing them to sort of "short" out but i have not experienced this..

if they are working fine and the only side effect is that the eye plates are not flush then you could just leave them like that...

i have OCD and i would not be able to sleep until i got them fixed
