We are used to getting lucky when we drop our phones and they do not get damaged. Unfortunately, this luck runs out pretty quickly when we accidentally drop 2-3kg laptop.
We received this Asus UX433 Repair – black screen after a fall in our Adelaide workshop recently. It is a great light laptop. However, like every other electronic device, it is sensitive to impacts. Especially drops as it experienced recently.
After a fall this Asus UX433 would turn on with a black screen. Also, there is no picture or activity from the keyboard.
Asus UX433 Repair – black screen after a fall Repair Process
A quick way to diagnose if there is an electronic fault or a screen fault is to check if there is a response from the CapsLock key. If it does not light up when pressed, it is certainly some kind of electronic failure. As it was with this Asus UX433 Repair.
Taken apart we could immediately spot the discolouration on the heatsink of this Asus UX433. This clear indication of ongoing overhearing issues. The colour of copper is light however, exposure to continuous heat changes it to red-brownish.
We detect a short circuit at one of the voltage output lines. It is a common area on these models, next to the heatsink. Trapped heat at these spots, with the help of a physical impact such as drops, creates microfractures in the SMD components. Particularly ceramic filtering capacitors, which then short and cause a particular voltage line to fail.
Apparently with this model was a line responsible for CPU/video circuit. It is an electronic repair, similar to Asus not turning-on repairs we get.
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 on 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.

Repaired, not Replaced!
We are committed to reducing e-waste in Australia. How we do it is by educating our customers on 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 from polluting our one and only Planet.
