What do circuit board repair services include?
Circuit board repair service, also known as PCB (Printed Circuit Board) repair, includes all the tasks necessary to fix the PCB of your TV, smartphone, stereo speaker, amplifier, laptop and desktop PC motherboard, or other electronic devices.
Your hired repairman can fix most common PCB damage, whether it’s accidental impact, a manufacturing defect, or wear and tear. The service includes diagnosing the problem, fixing cracks, removing, and replacing non-working components, and re-soldering them.
Your hired circuit board repairman begins by inspecting the electronic circuit board of your device. They can check if the board’s components have cracks or breaks, operate at the right voltage, test whether for a short-circuit, inspect areas for corrosion or other problems that can affect the board’s performance. After checking the circuit board and isolating the cause of the problem, your repair specialist proceeds with the appropriate fixes.
Removing and replacing non-working components
Using voltage-checking tools and a circuit board specification sheet as a reference, your hired repair specialist can check for any defective or non-working components on the board. Once found, they can do the delicate work of de-soldering the components and replace these non-working or defective ones with new components.
Fixing broken circuit boards
Part of PCB repair services is fixing circuit boards that have split or broken into pieces. Your hired repair specialist can reattach broken circuit boards with industrial adhesives, then replace and solder on any of the affected components.
If any components on your device’s circuit board no longer work, come off, or are short-circuited, your repair specialist can re-solder new ones onto the board. Your hired repair specialist takes care to apply the soldering iron sparingly; this prevents burning other components on the PCB or fusing components by accident.
Reinstalling and testing the circuit board
Once your repair specialist has repaired any cracks or breaks on the circuit board, removed any defective components and replaced them with new ones, they can reconnect the board to its device. Your repair specialist tests the circuit board by activating and using the device.
If the device works as it first did, then the circuit board repair service is a success. Should the device not work as expected, your specialist can repeat the repair process and test the board until the device works properly and without issue.
