Or more likely replace the laser head.
They all start to go down from the minute they're bought.
If you have access to a laser power meter, see if the it's O/P is down.
You can then often tweek a bit more life out of it with the laser power
setting, but it'll fade again, the only real answer is a replacement head.
Luckily they don't cost the arm and a leg they used to.
