Laser diodes are no like light bulbs. When a light bulb burns out, it goes black. When a laser diode burns out, it goes to an extreme low power state. You can see red at the source, but there is no beam to speak of. If this is what you're seeing, then contact Dewalt. They are low quality instruments, but will try there best to get you a new one, at a reasonable price.

Set it up and shoot 4 level points around the laser . Like at 12 -3-6and 9 o clock. Move the laser 15 or 20 ft from where it is now and re-shoot those 4 points again .if they don't read level then your laser needs calibrated

Lazermark won't self level

There are 2 leveling systems in the lasermark lasers. The original was belt driven. The belts are rubber O rings, and break down over time. take the bottom off the laser and you can replace broken belts. It's a simply yet elegant system.
The newer ones use leveling cams. A tear drop shaped wheel on a motor, that raises and lowers one end of an axis to tilt the laser. The problem is because they have a hook at one end, they put a magnet in the cam to tell the laser when to stop turning the cam. If however, it reaches the limit, and then gets bumped it'll get the leveling axis stuck in the hook of the cam, and because the magnet is there, it will never relevel. What you have to do is, disassemble the laser, unplug the leveling motors and pull the wires for the magnet sensor out of the stuck axis. then swap the sensor from the other sensor in (as it wont level without reading the sensor) and then turn the unit on. It should be able to level at that point. The put all the wires back where they go, and you're on your way.

The off level light doesn't turn off therefore doesn't level at all,

Your vial and compensator no longer match up. Move the foot screws until you can get your laser to spin, then adjust your leveling vial until it reads level again, using the 3 screws holding the vial inplace.

Laser is level but out of level light blinks and will not spin

Your compensator and leveling vial are no longer aligned. Use your foot screws to find a place where the laser spins, then use the 3 hex head screws on the vial, to adjust it to read level.

We have a bunch of PLS180 units that are out of calibration. Is there any way to adjust these back to level. I have some concerns about opening up the unit after seeing the warning about laser radiation...

The manual describes the procedure for checking level and plumb for the PLS180 but if you have determined that your units are out of calibration you are right to be concerned about opening the unit yourself. Please contact PLS at 1-800-601-4500 to find an authorized service center for your lasers.
If you cannot locate your manuals to check level and/or plumb I an attaching a link to the PLS180 manual as the methods for confirming level and plumb are quite detailed and should be followed exactly as described.

Have a great day.
