Hey Dave and Restarters,
I’m wondering around the site not sure where to add data to the fixometer and then realised I have two separate profile pictures for some reason - one with a beard and one without!
Anyway I was fixing with a lady who brought two things - a weatherproof DAB radio and a desk lamp. The radio worked but one of the pots on the front was loose as if broken away from its internal housing but unfortunately the radio was actually too weatherproof to open carefully so we didn’t take it any further.
The desk lamp’s earth wire was detached from the inside of the frame (possibly shorting with live or neutral on occasion) I soldered it back on, insulated it, pat tested it and it worked fine - fixed!
My friend Liva also brought an external hard drive with a broken Mini USB socket that James managed to open up and salvage. Although I wasn’t able to solder the socket back on to the SATA control board she did manage to get can adaptor and recover all the data directly. So that was a half/three quarter fix i suppose? Can you quantify that?
I also had a go soldering the Micro USB socket back onto the PCB inside the gentlemen’s bluetooth speaker that you were looking at with him. He put it back together and although reconnecting the cable did seem to trigger the charging LED for a moment but I don’t think all the terminals were connected properly so I would’t count that as a fix - but close!
I can add these to the fixometer - but where do I do that?
