Only attempt this repair if you need the information on the USB drive as they are fairly delicate devices inside.You should be able to repair it if you have the right fine soldering iron and good soldering skills as the printed circuit board tracks will be very fine: you will probably need to very carefully re-attach the USB plug to the printed circuit board with strong epoxy glue and then ensure that you re-join (with the help of extremely thin electrical wire if require) all the tracks to the 4 USB pins. The Electronic is very static electricity sensitive, so make sure that you do not ZAP it by first earthing yourself! Hope it helps and Good luck!

Broken Flash Drive ? , Flash Drive not working ? Dont trash it just yet.

Many people believe that when a flash drive stops working , you can throw it in the trash...this is however a expensive mistake to make as about 30% of drives can be repaired.

There are basically 3 causes for a flash drive to stop working.
  1. Partition is corrupted
  2. Broken electrical contact inside the drive
  3. Memory module is blown (no repairs possible)

#1 Partition is corrupted

If your flash drive's partition is corrupted you will not be able to access it. To fix this , do the following.

Go to My Computer
Right click on the flash drive
Select Format


Check the Quick Format option
Select Start

After the format is completed , test the drive. If it disappears or was never present to begin with , but windows detected when it was plugged in , try re-assigning the drive letter for the flash drive.

If you do not know how to do this , please follow the steps in the following tip i wrote : How to change a drive letter.

If the drive is not present in the disk management window , proceed to step 2.

#2 Broken electrical contact inside the drive

If the drive does not detect on your pc , this might be the cause.

What you need :
  1. Soldering Iron and Solder
  2. Magnifying Glass (Optional)
  3. Desk Lamp
  4. Superglue

Open the cover of your flash drive. This is normally done by pulling the two parts apart. Then have a look at where the USB is soldered onto the PC board. There will be four metal contacts soldered onto the board.


This is normally where a electrical fault will occur.

If you find one of the contacts are broken , simply solder it back into place and glue the cover of your drive back on.

If these steps fail to fix your flash , you can dump it in the trash with confidence that its dead.

Please rate this solution if you found it helpful.

Bosch SHX46A05UC/30 runs for 4 hours.

The circut board in the biege plastic case under the buttons on the right has what is called a cold solder. In other words the solder melts under operational use. Some are repairable and some are not.

1. UNPLUG DISHWASHER or turn off breaker and test for electricity.
2. Remove screws from door panel.
3. Take pic of position of wires going into plastic box.
4. Remove top section of plastic box with buttons exposing small circut board.
5. Open plastic box exposing large circut board and in the middle of it you will see a black spot where the solder has popped. Resolder and reassemble OR replace old circut board and then reassemble.

A new circut board is about $135
Usually electrical parts are not returnable

If the board on a hardrive is bad, it is UNLIKELY that replacing the board will make the drive work. The original may have "tuning" to the disk that a replacemnt doesn't have.

To avoid data loss you would probably have to go to a recovery outfit and pay plenty.

I need to reattach some of the output end of the amp which have been broken off at circut board and are missing i need an schematic or picture performance teknique model ICBM-892 / 2 CIRCUIT Schematic

I think you need to be aware, that if you don't have a good enough soldering iron, magnifier, jig, or enough copper, solder and laquer to do this job properly,.. It belongs in a bin:(
Sorry to say it, but, throw it away.
If the 'motherboard' in your computer, was cracked or smashed,.. Then you arrive at the local computer shop, show it to the guy behind the counter, who will say, "It's **** son."
Or words to that effect.
Simply because, in the long term, it will not be a cost effective affair.
Just buy new. That's what they ALL want you to do in the end.
Some things just go in the bin. Sorry,..
I'm glad we got that cleared up:)

Kodak flash circut, need one, maybe a manual to show how to replace

Kodak will not sell the service manual or any replacement parts to non authorized contracted service reps.

Most of the fixes in these cameras is replacement of boards. They do not support component level servicing.
