Hi,

These are difficult to repair but it can usally be done. depending on the damage the device may be fixable or the chip with your files on it may be able to be removed and installed on a working cicuit board but both generally require professional assistance.

First things to do is take a good look at the large chip on the circuit board. if it is cracked or swollen you're likely out of luck. If that large chip is still intact your odds of recovery are reasonable.

Depending on which type of repair cost could be anywhere from $100-$1000.

There is a company in Canada that accepts cases from all over North America listed in FixYa's directory called Armor-IT Data Recovery. They should be able to help you with this.

Just be sure to pack it up in an anti-static bag(if you don't have one you can get them at any computer store) as the exposed chip is highly susceptible to damage from static.

Hope this helps,

Chris

The red filter light will not reset after replacing the filter on my Miele S5980


Hi There, I actually did a repair on this problem only a couple of weeks ago. The problem could be that the small lever that pushes on the reset button on the circuit board is bent or broken. The little button costs about $10 from memory and certainly a whole lot cheaper than the board itself which is $234. Just to clarify in my case there was nothing wrong with the board, I was able to manually push the reset switch on the board and replace the tiny lever and problem was solved.

Can hard disk fix


******** Hard Drive,

Bad news - They are s**t to try and fix

Good news - Can be done ^_^

Firstly the almighty question, Do you have anything that you cannot replace or really need on that hard drive?

No? You can purchase a new one these days around $100 for 500GB just go into a computer store and ask for a 2.5inch laptop HDD

Yes? You can send it away to be repaired, or if you want to do it from home you can order the same hard drive (must be exact or very similar) If you take the hard drive out of the laptop and open it up carefully! there is a green circuit board thats easily accessible and easy to detach. you need another one of those exact circuit boards so you can switch it over.

When a hard drive stops working its usually the circuit board that goes, its what makes it read and write to the disk which is deeper in the enclosure and holds all your info.

Good luck and let me know how you get on

Lacie External Drive won't turn on (blue Light doesn't go on)


Inside the LaCie D2 250GB (300770) external harddrive's case, is a 250GB IDE (PATA) harddrive that is 3.5 inches across in width.

A desktop computer sized harddrive. (May be a Western Digital WD25000JB)

The harddrive plugs into a small circuit board, (Bridge board), and the circuit board has a USB port on it.

Using this Western Digital Passport for an example,

http://www.xbitlabs.com/misc/picture/?src=/images/storage/wd-passport-250gb/p3.jpg&1=1

Scroll down to the second photo, and left-click on it. The case of the external harddrive is shown open.
Inside is a 2.5 inch laptop sized harddrive.
An aluminum tape strip covers the small circuit board, attached at the back of the harddrive.

The second photo down on this page, shows you the small interface circuit board, that the harddrive plugs into, with the aluminum tape removed.

http://www.xbitlabs.com/articles/storage/display/wd-passport-250gb_2.html

(Another design has wires coming from the small circuit board, to an interface the harddrive plugs into )

It is this small circuit board that goes bad in a LaCie. QUITE common.

Solution?

Simple.
1) Obtain a 3.5 inch IDE external enclosure
2) Remove the 3.5 IDE harddrive from the LaCie's case.
3) Install the harddrive out of the LaCie into the external 3.5 IDE enclosure.

An example of a 3.5 IDE (PATA) external enclosure,

My USB broke, is there any way I can access and trasfer my files, even if it means going inside the device?


The circuit board maybe broken or the USB plug needs resoldering back onto the circuit board. To check out the damage the circuit board needs to be removed from the casing to check for and circuit board damage or damaged solder joints. You need a fine tipped temperature soldering iron for this job.
The damage may be too great to repair.
It pays to backup your data in two sources in case one of your data drives fails.

Wont read the remote


Hi, I may have the answer, it sounds like the remote may be broke. They are expensive if I'm not mistaken so repairing it is my advice. there are only 4 parts to them, the upper and lower halves of the case, the keypad, and the circuit board. The 2 to 3 things that can go wrong with a remote are the battery terminal/s being corroded due to a leaked battery, the keypad has contamination on the backside where it contacts the circuit board and-in some remotes-a " ceramic filter " a kind of "chicklet" looking component on the circuit board that can actually break apart on the inside if the remote is dropped just right or too often( this can be determined by removing batteries and tapping or shaking remote-if you hear a small rattle this may be culprit-although disassembly has been required to tap the ceramic filter itself to hear the rattle) . Repairing the batteries terminal is as easy as it sounds-just look for a greenish or whitish foreign substance on the springs/contacts-and clean off enough to reestablish a good connection with the battery( rule of thumb-if there is metal showing on the contacts where the battery touches, they're clean enough). repairing the keypad if dirty is a little harder, just because it involves disassembling remote,remove screws ( maybe located inside of battery compartment ) gently pry open case ( may involve working around the edge between the two halves for a ways to get it to split) remove circuit board, clean the little dots behind each button with some rubbing alcohol-clean the little maze like looking gold colored paths on circuit board the same way. To fix a broken ceramic filter you'll actually need to find an orphaned remote control that you can cannibalize for its ceramic ceramic filter. just unsolder old one-solder in new one. Sorry for the short story sized solution, trying to be thorough for you. I hope this was useful, please comment back to let us know and thanks for choosing FixYa, good luck-Prodzilla

My san disk 4 gb usb drive is broken from the fromt socket?? can u fix it?


It is very difficult to fix, especially when the connector is broken away from the circuit board.
I'm afraid you will need to buy a new one, depending upon the size, they are not very expensive.

> how to recover the stored files There's a chance that the USB-to-disk-drive interface inside the casing is the problem. So, open the case, and disconnect the disk-drive from that interface, remove the disk-drive, and then connect the disk-drive into a desktop computer as a "slave" disk-drive, to see if the disk-drive itself is working, and to see if you can access the stored files. > how to fix the external HDD First, you need to spend about $1 million to create a "clean-room" (as was used when the disk-drive was assembled). Or, search online for a professional "data recovery service", who already have a "clean-room". They can separate the "integrated electronics circuit-board" from the "spinning" part of the disk-drive, and then connect another circuit-board, to see if the original circuit-board is the problem. Or, they can disassemble the "spinning" parts, and try to repair it, just long-enough to copy all the files from the disk-drive. Obviously, not "inexpensive", but it could be your "last-chance" to recover those files.

Memory stick problems!!


It depends on how good you are with a soldering iron HA :) just kidding.

the two main problems that I get on broken flash drive are:

1. the usb plug has broken off the little board. (you broke the connector off)

2. The chip has came away from the board (you bent it and popped the chip)

The quick and dirty fix for this is get a giant flat pink eraser (the width of your thumb) and some thick rubber bands. If the chip is loose then strap it to its board with some rubber bands making sure they connect back as they should while using the big pink eraser as a backing and support. attach a short usb extension cable so that you will not have to move it to plug it in once you have it strapped in.

If the usb plug is broken off then use the same process attach the usb
extension to the plug remnants and then lay the two pieces as they should be on the eraser and rubber band them together.sometimes it helps to put a little wad of paper under them to make them fit snug. plug it up and away you go.

at this point windows will most likely see the drive and can copy off your files.

HOWEVER( it may complain its not formatted, make sure that you do NOT format it) download recuvia at http://www.recuva.com/ and have it chew on the drive usually I can get something off the drive occasionally all the files. Just make sure that you have it restore the files to another drive (like your C: drive) that is good. Good luck.

the correct way involves a stereo microscope and micro soldering tools.
and you just "fix" it by soldering it back together.

Try your sandisk to other computer and if appearing same problems may it comes to conclusion that it was damage. maybe some circuit of your sand disk is damage or maybe your files cannot be access anymore but and most probably u can use your san disk if you goes to formatting.
