Many people don’t realise their consumer rights when it comes to manufactures warranty!

Gadgets in today’s world generally have a warranty between 1-5 years, depending on the product. What this warranty gives you, the consumer,is the right to go back to the company of purchase or manufacture if you have any manufacturing faults or defects with the product.

Manufacturers have been known and have a tendency to void your warranty for reasons they are not always permitted to do. A common reason for manufactures voiding your warrant is third party repairs. Now in some cases this makes sense, for example if you get your motherboard replaced and then follow to have a motherboard issue,however in many cases you could have a screen replacement and then when you have a completely unrelated issue for example a battery problem they will still void your warranty. But is this really right...

Gadget Rehab advises you have read of this article titled: “what really voids your warranty”. You should also read your manufactures terms and conditions and contact them should you have any concerns or need further clarification.

Google Pixel Repair

For the past 5 years Gadget Rehab have done repairs on all types of  devices, not just Apple or Samsung devices like some other companies within the industry. An example of this is last week one of our techs Dan B completed his 50th repair on a Google Pixel.

Issue - Charge port

Task one of any repair is to diagnose the issue - in this case the customer had brought the device in with charging issues.  Dan, firstly conducted a series of tests on the charge port and battery using a USB tester to determine if it was the battery or charger port. Dan, also tested the battery and the daughter board (controls all charging aspects of the phone) He found that it was a short not accepting voltage, the technician came to the conclusion that replacing the part was the best way forward.

The next step was to order the part - the technician then went to our trusted and tested suppliers and placed an order for a Google Pixel charge port.  

Upon arrival of the part the technician got straight to work:

  1. Remove screen - one of the difficulties with this repair is that to access the area the screen needed to be removed - this isn't easy without breaking the screen and comes with risk.
  2. After removing the screen - Dan got to work on the repair and changed the faulty port.
  3. Post repair the device went through a thorough testing process
  4. Once it passed all the tests the customer was called to collect their device

The customer was very pleased with the overall service and the repair itself and Dan, was pleased to complete his 50th successful Google Pixel Repair.

How to speed up your Laptop or Desktop PC including iMac and Macbooks.

Many of our professional clients (graphic designers, web designers, architects etc.) are constantly complaining that their computers are running slow, that the programs they use (adobe creative cloud, Maya, Photo Shop etc.) are taking longer and longer to load and even start up.

Now the above issues could be down to many things however a majority of these issues are caused by lack of hard drive space and speed . As these professionals work with rather large files the PC/iMac/laptops etc. can’t handle the sheer capacity of files, as they may be running out of storage or be running on a standard mechanical hard drive rather than a digital solid state drive. Furthermore memory such as RAM can have an impact on the performance of your computer. Upon review of your computer system the team will be able to determine and advice you on what the best type of upgrade would be for you.

Even if for example your RAM is up to date/spec if your hard drive is not as advance it could be that the system is slowing down because the hard drive is trying to catch up to the RAM, visa versa. In most cases we find upgrading your to an SSD dramatically improves  the  performance of your computer. The Samsung EVO 850 this is the hard drive we generally use as it comes in multiple sizes and is well trusted etc however if you prefer another type such as Western Digital or Crucial these can be ordered in for you.
