Asus GL703 not charging repair after a previous repair

This week we have an Asus GL703 not charging repair after a previously opened by a reair company. The repair shop did not manage to disconnect the battery connector properly. As a result, broke the battery connector and ripped data communication lines to the battery connector.

Due to the lift-up connector and damaged traces on the circuit board, we need to apply some soldering skills here.

Please note: This is not educational material. It is rather a showcase of the services we offer.
Therefore, it should be used as general guidance of what to expect of such repairs.
In case you have a similar device and need the repair, always rely on professionals. These are sensitive electronic devices, and small mistakes may cause irreversible electronic damage. Which may require whole part replacement for 2 or 3 times the cost.

Resoldering damaged Battery connector on Asus GL703

The repair process requires resoldering of the power jack and rebuilding damaged traces, so the motherboard can correctly identify and monitor the battery. Especially considering how explosive these lithium batteries are if not under controlled charge or discharge.

We have a sophisticated equipment workshop with high accuracy microscope, ultrasonic cleaning bath, reflow machine, and tools for micro soldering to achieve high-quality logic boards repairs. With hundreds of components in stock, we quickly located and replaced the faulty resistors and capacitors in the area.

The final stage is to apply some solder masks to ensure those traces won’t move anywhere. Also, some glue around the battery connector to ensure its stability and future usability.

Servicing those sloppy hinges of Asus Not Charging Repair

To ensure the longevity of the whole laptop, we also need to target the issue with the hinges. Although not broken yet, we knew that if we do not service those hinges the customer will soon have broken hinge support on her Asus laptop. Same as the cases we receive often of laptops with broken hinges, which skipped regular servicing.

One more thing is to change the dried up thermal compound with a fresh one. This will ensure that a powerful laptop like this will last for another 5 years in operation easily even if under demanding circuimstances.

Repaired, not Replaced!

We are committed to reducing e-waste in Australia. How we do it is by educating our customers in the repairability and longevity of their devices, as well as providing affordable Laptop Repairs here in Adelaide.
Although our best intentions and hard work, this is not an easy task. Customers must accept that cost of high-quality electronic repairs, is between a third and half of the price of a new device. However, with the current trend of planned obsolescence in electronic design, we see more and more Laptops having shorter lifespans. To tackle that, while we do our repairs we target common planned obsolescence engineering design mistakes to ensure we extend the life expectancy of the Laptops we repair. Check some of our Laptop Repair Cases to get an idea of the process.

That said, if we buy a new one or write it off via insurance, it does not guarantee that the new one will not meet the same fate as the older one pretty soon.
As matter of fact, quite often we see accidents reoccurring within less than 2-year gaps. If we can save 1000$ or even 500$ today by repairing our faulty Laptop is great. That’s an extra half Laptop cost ready to be spent on another one when the time comes or our need for performance increases.
When that time comes is up to us to buy a new one or keep pushing the one we have, but delaying it by a year or three is always a good starting point and saves another abandoned Laptop polluting our one and only Planet.
