Galaxy Charger port replacement

 

All charger ports are different and require different care and handling. 

USB, Micro, Mini SS

Power, +/-

Special Propiatery upto 15 MM!

How to Replace a Charger Port?

First off, We need to have the motherboard completely seperated from the device. Once it is fully dissassembled we need to pre heat it to soak in in some good heat. Then we can go ahead and solder or desolder.

We will need to desolder the old port. clean the area and tin the pads. You might also need to clean out the leg through-holes. and then you will be able to place a new port! Use a microscope and careful heat to be able to solder the pins. at 225 lead free solder should melt and with the proper flux you should have a good joint.

Speaker Charger Port Replacement

Simply, Heat, Remove, Clean, Solder!

    Information
    10 December 2020
    These tuners are pretty expensive and they do get over used. The choice of an HDMI port might a strange one. but you do need 19 pins of communication.    This HDMI port often breaks, but no worries we do repair her at TDR. We remove the old port clean and solder a new port on.   There are many pother issues that could happen on the XRT Pro tuner system. Before thinking it is broken. first check your HDMI cable to the car connector. sometimes that thing is broken. and you just need a new one. Sometimes it is the HDMI, and in rare cases it is the motherboard, as some people break it doing DIY fixes and home attempts at getting a picture from these things if the do break.    do not forget a bit of isopropyl alcohol in the HDMI port can help clean it out for a better connection.    If you need a repair please click on the start a repair button.

  • Surface Pro 5 No Charge light

    Surface Pro 5 No Charge light

    Information
    27 February 2020
    We have recieved a Surace pro 5 from a customer complaining that the system does not charge any more. and he is not getting the white light on the charger. So we 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.    First step we need to take is removal of the screen. Screen remvoals 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 testing the main rail and in fact the 12V line is shorted! Causing no charge.Diodes bridges and capacitors needed to be replaced in order 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.   
  • MiniMaxx Diesel Tuner for pick up trucks HDMI Port repair

    MiniMaxx Diesel Tuner for pick up trucks HDMI Port repair

    Information
    14 November 2019
    According to the customer the HDMI port has been broken, and he has tried to keep it on with crazy glue. Ofcourse that will not last long, as microsoldering is necessary for any kind of motherboard repair these days. Customer statement this is an aftermarket tuner made by the company mini maxx by h & s which is out of business. However it is the same thing as a Bully Dog brand tuner model 40420 or 40428 Current HDMI status as the board arrived It was fully broken and 2 legs stuck in the throughholes with some damage to the pads. The hdmi port was completely removed from the board,broken right off. What makes this repair difficult is the fact that there is an LCD ont he other side that is not easily detachable, and is soldered on . The flex cable is sodlered tot he screen and attached to the motherboard in a way where it will be damaged if removed. So cleanup was a bit difficult.    Cleanup Process So here is what we did. We used slight hot air on the board to heat it, making sure we do not damage the LCD. So therefore we can have more accuracy. without having a cool board. Cool boards always give you bad joints. We removed the broken legs by suctions, and we cleaned the pads, tinned and fluxed them.  Installation and Inspection So we obtained a new port from our supplier and went ahead after the cleanup process to place the port and solder all the legs Assembly Device fully assemlbed and ready to go :)

    Information
    09 November 2019
    After a technician at another company was done with a iPad screen repair he noticed that there is no touch on the the new screen. It was noticed that the Fuse/Filter was burnt. Due to not having properly de-powering the device.   As you can see the fuse is blown and needs replacement. Micro soldering around the FPC connector can be difficult not to damage the connector. However with proper heat The fuse was replaced, initially thought to be a capacitor, after finding proper schematics it is actually a fuse. .3 OHM to be exact.     Is this a boobie trap made by Apple? Yes, we believe so, this can be easily mitigated in a hardware world where you do not need to disconnect a battery for a screen replacement.   Initial Filter Replacement.   Filter changed to a Fuse and all is good.

    Why are we saying this is a terrible one? Well, here is the story.. Surface pro 3 sent in . for screen repair and battery replacement. However. we noticed more than just that. The screen replacement was not successful due to the fact that 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 we removed the motherboard again to access the CPU area and we have cleaned and re-thermal pasted the device   But that is not all. the new battery that was placed came looking lie kit was great! after fully assembling the device we noticed windows saying that battery is not present , and 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 a new windows installation, and APU cleaning and re-thermal-pasting  we have refurbished this system to a different better condition that ever possible.  Microsoft Surface Pro 3 at TDR, gets a magic touch no other shop adds.

    To SSD or Not To SSD

    Information
    23 August 2019
    Have you been wondering, whether it would be a good idea to invest in an SSD drive? Well wonder no more. Yes it is... However. It is costly.  The moment you add an SSD drvie to your system you will automatically notice that your system is at least 3 times faster. Some may notice 50x the speed increase. Here is why.    Speed   Think of an old HDD hard drive as a spinning plate. And in order to read anything on the disk you must spin it to the proper spot (seek time) and then read the stuff as it is spinning (read time)  When it comes to SSDs it is basically a non volatile memory chip that all it needs to do is get the correct register number t0o get the data from the memory chip. So there is no seek time and the read time is memory speed so it is very very fast!  Price each gigabyte of ssd  is definitely more expensive than spinning disk. however! today you can get lucky with a 256 for $60-100 .. which means that for $100 you double triple or even 50x the speed of your machine. Is it worth the price.. yes it is! There is no doubt about it! You must be a fool not to get an SSD. Even a small 64gb SSD drive just to put your operating system on would be the best thing you have spent your money on. Those can be found for $20 dollars!!      So do yourself a favor, Buy an SSD, and upgrade your machine. If you do not know how to transfer your operating system, then you can always count on us to transfer that for you! we will Clone and mount and make sure your system is running the best it could be!

    This one PS4 came in from an attempted repair by a new shop. There is no issue in trying to repair it. it is just time consuming... I think it is possible to rebuild every torn trace. but in this case we have 7. PS4 HDMI port repairs should very easy, but newbie common mistakes makes them much much harder later on. We had to clean and cut all the old traces. and start fresh with new port on the pads. Then we ran new traces to the pins.    after assembling and testing all was good and we did not need to replace an diodes or caps! Each pin takes around 15 minutes to create properly. 2 hour job!
  • PS4 with CE-35888-2 Error

    PS4 with CE-35888-2 Error

    Information
    26 June 2018
      What is the CE-35888-2 Error code? The notorious and dreaded CE-35888-2 error code... So your PS4 bluray stopped reading discs, or it stopped ejecting discs!! worst yet it stopped making any noises and is completely dead. You thought you can fix it , so you went on eBay,  and bought your self a replacement drive... you got it delivered to your home.. you replaced the drive. and boom you see that it takes the disc, it reads it and then you try to start the game and you are all excited until it all comes crashing down with the CE-35888-2 error... ... Now you are frustrated and try to swap different parts around not knowing what is going on you give up and you go online searching for the fix..  You reached this page.. and unfortunately there is no fix to your issue. because the issue is not the drive rather the fact that you can never replace the drive on a PS4 system. The PS4 system is married to the the Blu-Ray Drive it comes with from factory and in order to repair your drive issue you must repair your drive... To get your drive replaced properly check our Blu-ray Replacement service. How to fix the CE-35888-2 Error code? There is no easy fix to this issue. Stop and locate your old drive ... it is very important that you have your old drive.. the chip on there , if lost, your drive will never come back to life! Here at TDR we have re-married many a system below is a video of how we re-marry the daughter-boards with a donor one.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oSLfCuQ8T9Q   Now that is not the only fix... the reason you replaced the drive is because you didn't know how to fix it... we fix the blu-ray drive without remarrying   Why is it impossible to swap the drives as is? The PS4 blu-ray drives on the models earlier than 1215A all have married chips to the board and the chip and firmware of the board has to stay together to keep functioning. Sony designed it this way and we have to repair and work around the facts.    Do we recommend swapping drives? Never! It just doesn't work. Unless you remarry the chips, you will have nothing but a bricked disc. Should you buy a drive for replacement? Maybe! in rare cases the drive motors and spindles go bad. and to avoid the 358882 error you should swap the daughter-boards from the old drive to the new one.. if that works great! if does not, you need to remarry the daughter-board on the Blu-ray, or get the daughter-board actually repaired.. which is something we at TDR can diagnose and repair...

  • PS4 with manufacturer defects

    PS4 with manufacturer defects

    Information
    01 October 2017
    This PlayStation has a few manufacturer defects that showed themselves over time. The first is the inability to sync the controller, while in safe mode the controller is working perfectly. Also it has a storage data link issue where it can no copy the update files correctly tot he HDD. with error code su-41283-8 when trying to update, and SU-41XXX-X when trying a full reinstall. The culprit chip is yet to be found as this is a very intensive search and reball on many RAM chips and the double stacked WiFi Bluetooth chip. Controller only syncs in safe mode, the hard drive can not be flashed. It seems to be a problem with memory . That issue is very time consuming and a dangerous process. as it requires removal and applying of a new memory chip to each one of the DDR5's. This PS4 is canned until further diagnosis.  We noticed manufacturer solder splatter evident on the entire board. This console passed poor QA inspections at the facilities.

  • XB1S console with a broken HDMI port

    XB1S console with a broken HDMI port

    Information
    28 September 2017
    Due tot he fact that Xbox One S models' HDMI ports are not out in the parts market, It is a more challenging repair. Though we do have a solution. We replaced the HDMI OUT with the HDMI IN port as most users do not use that port. With consent from the owner we were able to repair there device. Though it does add an extra weight on the technicians shoulder to have to perfectly remove a component for replacement.  It requires a few in depth steps than I am about to describe but the high level point picture of the repairs goes as follows: Disassemble the Xbox one, removing and cleaning out the motherboard completely. Ad flux and solder the the zinc solder with more less resistant solder material. With a heat gun at a good temperature above melting point but below burning heat up the part and remove it carefully. Clean out the pads with solder flux and clean out all the old solder. Align the HDMI port with the new placement on the motherboard. carefully through a 100x and above microscope. Solder each pin with a fine tip. and solder the mounts on the side with lots of solder. Inspect and test! happy HDMI replacements!

    Dell Inspiron 11, Constant reboot loop

    Information
    28 September 2017
    The Dell inspiron 11 small form factor laptop is a special one. It does not have an SSD or hard drive, rather a 32GB EMMC. with that said most windows install media will not be able to install the software. And you must install an embedded OS win 10 version. Due to the lack of experience by many technicians the dell inspiron 11 is a laptop that many can not fix when things go wrong. We do know how to get an Embedded OS windows 10 installation on the drive. However it is a very time consuming task. This particular one needed a full refresh as a previous technician completely destroyed the EMMC and removed all partitions off recovery from it.

    Information
    23 March 2017
    We have started to help remote businesses with there Microsoft SQL database replication processes. We have successfully implemented Merge Replication, Transactional Replication and Snapshot Replication. Merge replication requires a unique column for the data and might not be suitable for all custom applications. Also Transactional Replication has the same limitation though it only needs a primary Key in every table. Snapshot replication however is the slowest but replicates the database on a level which is an exact copy of the original database, and does not require any extra columns or primary key restrictions. The specific client wanted replication from their local office to AWS Amazon Web Services server. We were able to open the required ports and configure the replication securely over Access List in the firewall. Mirror replication however was unsuccessful due to problems on the live Database server, troubleshooting it means we have to take the server down, which is not an option for this 99% highly available database.
