hi there, does anyone know if this has an internal fuse? I dropped it about 6" on to a table top and now if does not work, tried the powersupply on another gre and it works so i know it's not a power problem
hi, I checked everything, for burnt, broken, loose components and cables, ribbon cables , cracked boards. loose solder connections and i see nothing, and the keypad backlights don't even come on = so i dont think it would be a display screen issue either.
i think it may have to go to the shop, not sure who or where and if they do estimates as well?
cheers, It is cold out and starting to snow, well there goes summer, I was hoping it would stay forever
Wow, somebody's hard on their gear,lol! Unless you're using a milspec radio, these scanners are only built to class 2 smt standards which means you will have chip caps and resistors which may only be soldered 50% on the pads. Class 3 boards are soldered to a much higher standard - fyi.
It depends on how well the solder paste was applied before the pcb went in the oven, and if all the smt components placed well and reached reflow temp before coming out.
At class 2 specs, it's a crap shoot with any consumer electronics. :wink:
