Gadget Rehab is proud to say that we are in partnership with local colleges, opening doors to students who are looking into entering the IT/Business or Consumer Electronics Repair Industry.
At the moment we have two students who have chosen Gadget Rehab to be the place in which they conduct their work experience. Nathaniel has been with us for two weeks and has been such a great help to the team. He has picked repair skills in an impressive time frame, he has even been trusted to work on customer devices without much supervision.
Our second work experience team member is Max, he is doing an extended work experience, in line with the future plans here in the UK making BTEC students have a 45 day work experience. So Gadget Rehab was happy to assist the Department Of Education in their future plans for students. Max works here one day a week, each week learning something new or building upon skills that he has been previously been taught.
If you are a student looking to do some work experience feel free to contact us on;

Here at Gadget rehab we have seen an increase in CCTV box repairs. It is often difficult to find a CCTV repair company as not many companies offer a CCTV repair service and given that the cost of these surveillance systems can go into the 1000s it is probably worthwhile getting them repaired rather than replaced if possible.
At Gadget Rehab we have taken the time to conduct a vast amount of research into possible CCTV security repair services. We have found that a number of people are having CCTV connectivity issues this is usually a board level issue and luckily for you is a service we can offer.
Another issue customers are having is with the CCTV box not powering up. On a few occasions we have seen that there has been some signs of life or that the device lights up with continuous and annoying ‘beep’.
CCTV are an important part of security to many people so if you are having any issues please feel free to contact us on
When it is time to upgrade you are presented with several options via your mobile contract provider. These are often the latest devices which will involve you renewing your contract for a further 12, 18 or even 24 months. Once your locked in there is usually no way of getting out unless you are prepared to pay the rest of the contract out or wait to the end of the term.
But are these contracts really worth it? Let's take an iPhone 7 for example on a 12 month contract. You can end up paying an upfront cost of £20.00 towards the phone and then a monthly bill of around £80.00 for unlimited minutes and text and 50GB of data. This works out to £980.00 in cost over the contract period providing you do not go over your allowance.
So what other options could you have?
Taking a SIM only monthly or 12 month contract and keeping your existing phone (if it is still in good working order). Now with this option you would be able to get the same unlimited calls and text but with 60GB for £30.00 per month. This works out to £360.00 for the year. A saving of £620.00. A huge saving not to be sniffed at. That's a nice weekend away, an expensive handbag or pair of shoes, food shopping for a month (in some cases a week) or enough to purchase 2 iPhone 7 approved used devices or a brand new iPhone 7. This brings me on to another option.
Let’s say you come to the end of your contract and you fancy a change in handset, perhaps because your current device is faulty or you would like a change. Taking the same option above you could use the savings under the SIM only contract option and purchase an approved used device from GR Phones. We sell approved used iPhone 7 devices from £275.00. With this said you could use your savings of £620.00 to purchase one of our devices and still have change for those fancy shoes or handbag. Furthermore you could also trade in your old device at GR Phones as a credit towards your new phone or just for the extra cash.
Question to ask yourself
Do you really need a brand new phone or could you be happy with an approved used one?
Is your contract worth it, is it good value for money?
Are you getting the right amount of data, minutes and text?
If you are at the end of your contract or if you have already made the move to SIM only and would like to discuss your options of purchasing an approved used device and/or trading in your old device then please give us a call on 01494 534 008 where a member of our team will be more than happy to discuss your options.
Pushing of these may be a wiser choice even for general helpful tips and advise 🙂

The sound of a Bose speaker is second to only Wharfedale in my opinion and they do cost a pretty sum to purchase. So we can totally understand why customers will be seeking repairs for their Bose speakers and headphones rather than replacements.
We recently received a Bose headphones where the micro USB port had been damaged due to excessive use. Take a look at what it looks like inside your Bose headphones.
I know many of you have purchased these which may have or will develop a fault at some point. If you ever experience any issues with your Bose headphones give us a shout and we will see if we can help.
We didn’t release how expensive hair straighteners were before taking on this project. Our customer had paid around £200.00 for this hair straightener and his wife had used it for a couple years before the mains cord started to fail due to the twist,turns and manoeuvres associated with getting that perfect hairstyle.
We had assumed this level of damage to GHDs would render them redundant or Beyond Economical Repair however our customer made us aware that the power cords are changeable so we ordered the parts from an authorised GHD distributor and had the hair straighteners fit for purpose again 🙂
Its amazing we could continue the lifespan of this product and have another happy customer.
During our conversation with our supplier we discovered that many parts are changeable on these including Caps, diodes, resisters, hotplates etc. Do you have any GHD straighteners that require repair?
At Gadget Rehab we have completed many repairs for various car satellite navigation systems however when our customer bought in a Garmin Cyclist Sat Nav for repair we were taken back by how small these were. Our customer had managed to damage the micro USB connector so was no longer able to charge his Sat Nav.
We managed to carefully get the device open after following the manufacturer's technical guide, we then had to find the correct micro usb port for the device by going direct to the producers and have this ordered and replaced.
The trouble with these devices is not so much the disassembly but the assembly. These Garmin Sat Navs are put together with absolute precision so a fraction off and you may find that buttons may fail to work. We learnt the hard way so don't try this at home.
These days we love to record our activities especially when it comes to extreme sports. One of our keen snowboarding clients Go Pro device decided to fail on him during a Black Ski Slope adventure in Tignes (France). Having opened and assessed the device it was clear that there was a power issue associated with the battery. Testing the battery read 0.05 volts which was signs that it had depleted over time. Changing the battery on a GoPro is possible with careful disassembly so we ordered a new one and had our pro skateboarder up and running within no time.

This was a very exciting project for us. The Aircraft Simulation Contollers are used to help aspiring pilots to take off, fly and land aircraft's of various sizes and weights. The issue with this device was connected to the controls for the right wing being jammed (would hate to be on this aircraft lol). Having never repaired such devices before and with the cost of one of these around £2000.00 we had to be very careful and diligent in our approach to the diagnostics and repair. It turned out that there was a broken internal solder connection along with a seized motor. We completed this successfully and our client is now able to continue his flight simulation courses without having to fork out another £2000.00 on replacement.
