How can I repair my laser?

Simple answer, you cant. The PLS hand held lasers are not designed to be opened, or repaired. You will have to remove a decal to get the screws to open it, and doing so will mean the laser wont be sealed anymore. They are very susceptible to dust and debris. You can get it replaced with a PLS etn, from a PLS retailer. For free if you're under warranty, and for a reduced cost, if your not.

How many cubic feet is 312 sq. ft.

There is no relation between square anything to cubic anything.
If you want to calculate how many cubic feet 312 sq tiles are, you need to tell how this the tiles are.
Cubic is length x width x hight.
square is length x width.
All in the same dimension so even 1/4 of an inch, should be added in feet. with 0,00xx I don't want to calculate in these old measures anymore.

Two different meters of the same make and model 93-172 do not correlate...same values in the exact same position. Sensors and meters are paired as original. How do I adjust internally agains a certified...

That unit has a limited lifetime warranty, so are you sure you want to open them both up and void that warranty? I would send them both back to Greenlee for calibration and specify that they don't agree in the write up, with a known light source. Since Greenlee doesn't make their wiring and circuitry available to the general public, adjusting pots randomly is not a good idea.

If accuracy is extremely important to you, then you might want to send them to a calibration lab for them to adjust them.

I want to frame a closet do I just need 2by4's or should I use 2by6's

Framing lumber for interior non-load bearing walls is typically 2x4 in house construction. Even load bearing interior walls often only require 2x4 framing, but could require 2x6 framing depending on the load they carry(the load is how much weight of the roof or upper floors is being supported by the wall). Sometimes 2x6 framing is used for interior walls that have plumbing drain pipes to make it easier to fit them, likewise if the interior wall has heat/air ducting in it. Another reason to use 2x6 is to allow better sound proofing or higher insulation rating. If none of the special cases I've cited apply, then 2x4 is what I would use to frame a closet.

What indicates the black arrow mark in 16inches,32inches,64inches in steel measuring tape

Typical framing is laid out on 16 inch centers. Example: the studs in a framed wall are 16 inches apart which gives the required strength and allows drywall to break at a stud when it is installed. Drywall sheets are 8 foot or 12 foot, if the framing is on 16 inch centers then the drywall will end at a stud. The tape measure is highlighted at multiples of 16 inches to make it easy to mark the studs when laying out the framing.

Hi, a jus turn on my laser and i see green light on top of it but no beam at all.mabe i dont know how to use it?

The green LED on top is the power indicator. The PLS5 has 5 optic windows that should produce beams. Do Not look into the windows to see if there is a beam. Place your hand in front of each window. If there is no beam from any of the windows the unit is malfunctioning and requires service by an authorized service center. PLS states that there is NO service or repair that can be performed by the consumer beyond replacing the batteries and cleaning the optic windows This unit has a 1 year warranty from PLS.
Here is a link to the manual
and to their contact page.

How do you determan the 1 to 12 angle marks on the square to find the right compound cuts cheers

The 1 to 12 marks are the rise of the roof pitch in 12 feet. 1 would be 1 foot rise in 12 feet, 2 would be a 2 foot rise in 12 feet and so on to the max of 12 foot rise in 12 feet.
