The Microsoft Surface Pro is a nice little gadget. But when it breaks no one will work on them. They are very difficult to disassemble without issues. and have lots of really small parts with poor repair-ability design. Not to worry though here at TDR we have mastered the art of Microsoft Surface repair!
Surface Glass repair w/ Digitizer
One of the most common issues to have a dead screen. not to worry, our screen replacements are affordable.
No Power While the Charger is plugged in
Yes, this is a common problem. Even though your charger might be connected and the light on the charger cable is white, the surface pro might not want to power on.
- Method 1:
- Press and hold the power button + volume up for 15 seconds.
- let go and quickly press and let go of the power button
- Method 2:
- remove the charger.
- Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds
- let go, wait 10 seconds, and press the power button once.
If that fails then you need the motherboard repaired, and you have to have a component replaced. Usually, burnt Capacitors, Mosfets, and Diodes are to blame.
No Power When Charger is removed
So this is a particular issue… It is when the surface works great with the charger in place but turns off right away when removed.
- In Windows, check the battery health.
- Battery OK, then you need a motherboard repair
- Battery Dead, you will need a battery replacement
In both cases we have you covered and we will be able to solve your issue quickly and painlessly.
Charger port replacement
Charger ports will break from time to time, and we do replace them, they are costly because the screen needs to be removed fully.

Surface Pro 4 Not Powering Up!
For more information on our repairs for the Surface Pro please visit our repairs pages: surface pro repair
UPS showed up, let’s see what’s inside, I think I know what’s inside… it’s a surface pro…. what is wrong with it… let’s try to turn it on… and it’s dead mate.. let’s open it up…let’s heat it so we can get a good separation on the LCD screen… and we’re almost there. We’re able to separate it here….. as much as I would love to think nobody has opened this one up before there were no shields here to remove and I highly doubt it was never opened up before….. let’s see what’s going on… I got the multimeter and we’re gonna test the voltage… and again it’s supposed to say 0 and it says 5 volts here, we have some sort of leak in the 0 Volt Line here.. this has some sort of weird ground on the whole plane which is not ground but it’s a 0 volt.. we tested this the 3-volt line and we got nothing…… let’s replace the power IC chip and test and so right here remove the PMIC. and a bunch of capacitors here because we noticed there’s a short … we’re getting 0 here as we should and we have the 3 volts right now…. here it is we got it.
Surface Pro 5 No Charge light
We have received a Surace Pro 5 from a customer complaining that the system does not charge anymore. and he is not getting the white light on the charger. So we have identified that this is a no charge issue rather than a no power issue as we can see the battery logo when trying to power on the system.
The first step we need to take is the removal of the screen. Screen removals are an annoying task just to get to the motherboard. Not sure why they do not use magnets instead of glue. But we have the motherboard out.
We tested the main rail and in fact, the 12V line is shorted! Causing no charge.Diodes bridges and capacitors needed to be replaced to get this to work.
And finally reassembly and testing. The no-charge issue is not a simple repair and can be very time-consuming.
One Terrible Condition Microsoft Surface Pro 3
Why are we saying this is a terrible one? Well, here is the story. Surface pro 3 was sent in . for screen repair and battery replacement. However. we noticed more than just that.
The screen replacement was not successful because the shell was so bent out of shape! we needed a new shell. We got one and replaced the board, We also noticed it was running very hot! So we removed the motherboard again to access the CPU area and we cleaned and re-thermal pasted the device
But that is not all. the new battery that was placed came looking like the kit was great! after fully assembling the device we noticed windows saying that the battery is not present, and the device is still slightly heating up!
So we replaced the battery
It turns out that the original battery is not bad after all. the Firmware and all other software on the system needed an upgrade! When we did that the system stayed cool when Idle! Which is a great thing. With a new shell new screen and new firmware with new windows installation, and APU cleaning and re-thermal-pasting we have refurbished this system to a different better condition than ever possible.
