Greenlee has authorized service repair depots all over the nation.

Mine is California Service Tool, but they're strictly a California shop.

You must have one or two in your neck of the woods.

As a low end tool, I'd not be surprised if it's a toss and replace item.

First get new batteries. To some reason if you drop them it bends the batteries to where they won't make contact. If that doesn't work remove the oring on the battery end. This will sometimes get them to make contact again. If none of that works throw the junk thing away and get a better one. We have these at work and they do not hold up at all. Even riding around in the tool box can kill them. Greenlee levels suck and they are the same as a checkpoint level.

I have that same overpriced level. It never worked that well since the day I bought it. The laser was always finicky. It cost to much for everyday use so it just sits in my spare tools tool bag. The batteries in mine are probably corroded and exploded.

I never understood the point of those. Seems to me like they'd have limited use compared to a plumb bob laser.
