my gll 3-80 recently just list power to horizontal leveling plain,  it's 3 n half years old. Just outside of warranty, I call Bosch for service n they said it's not serviceable.  , 500 plus$ at the time n it can't be fixed.  I'm very disappointed in Bosch.  Great tool but bad service help in long run for this laser,    At least they can take back the broken tool for a deep discount on a new or cpo same tool , but I get told sorry go buy a new model.    Not happy  with Bosch just lost a consumer.  N all my carpenter friends at work.

Hi John, if you look at my thread about my laser, I've had the same problem. The only spare part for my laser is the battery cover!
I will never buy another Bosch product.

Unfortunately they don't seem to break that often, but when they do you can't fix them!

John,

The same thing happened to me with the gll 150 e. It’s really hard to believe that they could help in no way except to say - here go buy a brand new one. They told me that I could buy a new laser from them for more than it was listed for. I complained and asked if this was all they could do and the customer service rep found me the cheapest one they could find on. The web and even offered to order it for me and charge me for it. I appreciate the great effort by this customer service rep but it’s pretty sad that they couldn’t provide a better solution. And no way was I going to buy another product that would probably give out shortly after warranty. The sad part is I only put about 15 hours on that laser even though it was three years old. Didn’t have a scratch on it. 

After that im just going to use a different brand from now on.
