Bose Headphones Repair

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.

GHD Hair Straighteners Repair

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.

GoPro Repair

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.

 

 

 

 

Sony Home Entertainment Speaker Repair

We recently had a Sony SA-WIS100 worth around £500,  which had suffered from damage to the HDMI Port. After careful disassembly we finally got to the logic board to view the HDMI port. The HDMI port not only had internal visual damage there was also track damage to the prints on the logic board so we had to use precision microsoldering and create jumpers to secure the connection back to the board. This project went well and the customer was very pleased with the outcome saving him £100s from having to replace the unit.

Many of us have experienced the ‘too hot’ sign on our iPhones, here are a few tips on how to bring the device temp down;

  1. Remove the case - I know this may be obvious but it really does have a great impact on decreasing the temp.
  2. Avoid leaving it in the car - cars get very hot as sunlight heats up the car through the windows.
  3. Similarly keep the phone out of the sun - direct sunlight can overheat the phone.
  4. Avoid any unnecessary usage - don’t play games etc.
  5. Turn off bluetooth - the bluetooth even though it is small does have some heat radiation.
  6. Turn off location services - again even though minor can have an effect.  
  7. Avoid charging - until the phone has cooled down don’t attempt to charge it as charging increases temperature.
  8. Put it in a cool place - in extreme cases of overheating you may put your device in the fridge or freezer for a couple of minutes.

If your phone does regularly over heat it can be due to a faulty part, don't hesitate to bring your device into Gadget Rehab and our technicians will have a look to see if they can diagnose the issue. It can be due to many variables, e.g. battery servicing required etc.
