Hello. The 47DJ I bought to replace my 59DJ wasn't working too well with my backups since it was taken from a launch system and the laser wasn't very strong. I decided to swap the laser from my bricked drive into my 47DJ.

I removed the PCB bored and unscrewed the screw holding down the bar which the laser slides across. Upon swapping the lasers, I pushed the bar back inplace which is when a spring flew out.

After hours I cannot find where this spring goes, but now the laser will not move back and forth, I imagine this spring was crucial.

Does anybody know where it goes?
