#iphonex came in no power. When plugged in to PC it would do a connect, disconnect, connect, disconnect .. over and over and than Windows said it doesn’t recognize this USB device.  My DC power supply shows me a quick jump straight to 1amp upon prompt to boot for a few seconds and than drops to 0.02 and than back up and than hangs back down. It was tricky finding this shorted capacitor since it was covered in black under fill that I cleaned off around it. This little guy on the corner of the Nand memory chip next to a screw hole. Makes me think this was tech damaged from a slip screw driver. I predict that this fault is going to be a common one for this model.  #federalwaywa #localbusiness #fixit #southsound #datarecovery #microsoldering #cellphonerepair #applerepair #datarecovery #gadget #gadgetgenie #seattle #tacomawa #pacificnorthwest #pnw #electronicrepair #troubleshooting #logicboard #repair #repairiphone
Stayed late and rushed this #datarecovery case because I want to give appreciation to my customer. Thank you for believing in my service and for the business. .. #customerappreciation #localbusiness #federalwaywa #southsound #gadget #gadgetgenie #pacificnorthwest #seattle #tacomawa #fixit #pnw #mailinrepair #mailin #electronicrepair #applerepair #microsoldering #iger #picture
Most #techs would have given up on this #datarecovery a long time ago, I got this case in 10 months and 20 days ago. We finally did it!!! Super excited to have resolve this case. I put a lot of hours in on it...more than #business sense worth. I had to go thru so many stages and component changes, jumpers and in the end I could not rectify the no touch fault. I decided to take a different route to reduce and eliminate the risk of further component work on the #logicboard to avoid new variables or worse .. like reverting  back to step one with no power, no boot or data corruption with boot loops. Working with the #customer we was able to upgrade reset the #icloud log in, upgrade the storage space and do an iCloud back up. I used the USB external keyboard method to maneuver the screen selection since I did not have touch controls, usually I would have gotten to this point and than switch to #bluetooth keyboard to free up the lighting port for the iphone to connect to #itunes from there use the Bluetooth keyboard to grant permission for the iphone to connect to computer. However I also had no Bluetooth. This case was problems every step and I’m super satisfied even if it wasn’t profitable. This ones is for the customer. Thank you for the opportunity to be of #service. #federalwaywa #localbusiness #fixit #southsound #datarecovery #seattle #tacomawa #pacificnorthwest #pnw #cellphonerepair #electronic #applerepair #electronicrepair
First thing on the list today is to knock out this stack of #iphone Tristar chip replacements. The USB chip controller IC .. Keep your iphones in good health by using only certified MFI lighting charger cables. Here at Gadget Genie we trust @anker_official MFI lighting charging cables for iPhones and Apple products. Any #apple device with a lighting port has a USB Tristar chip in it and will go bad if cheap uncertified cables are used over time. You will see symptoms of no charging, fake charging and no iTunes connections. #workflow #microsoldering #gadget #gadgetgenie #electronicrepair #cellphonerepair #applerepair #localbusiness #federalwaywa #seattle #tacomawa #southsound #kingcounty #pacificnorthwest #pnw #logicboardrepair #datarecovery
#xboxone HDMI connector damaged.  Simple connector and port repairs. When doing any type of connector repairs, be mindful of the pins to insure no circuit pads are lifted and damaged. They will require less heat than the side anchor joints. Warm things up first from the anchor housing itself and not the base of the joint where it meets the logic-board, once the connector itself gets heated up the heat will transfer to the joints than re direct the heat where the solder meets the joint. This way you will lower the chance of burning and damaging nearby components and the logic-board. #microsoldering #logicboard #consolerepair #fortnite #gadget #gadgetgenie #localbusiness #federalwaywa #fixit #southsound #datarecovery #pacificnorthwest #pnw #seattle #tacomawa #electronicrepair #electronic

#iphone6 hardware encrypted key chips that are married to each-other and needed to achieve path to data. I feel like I’m getting closer to accomplishing a successful transplant. Once my practice run is successful, I will than give it a shot on the real thing. #microsoldering #datarecovery #logicboard #cellphone #electronicrepair #gadget #gadgetgenie #applerepair #cellphonerepair #washingtonstate #pacificnorthwest #pnw #southsound #kingcounty #thurstoncounty #seattle #tacomawa #federalwaywa
#iphone6s backlight circuit repair. Shorted #capacitor took out the coil and the diode. Replaced them and restored the backlight. #federalwaywa #seattle #tacomawashington #microsoldering #soldering #datarecovery #cellphone #cellphonerepair #applerepair #gadget #gadgetgenie #samsungrepair #electronicrepair
#ipadpro97  no backlight #circuit #repair . Two blown caps a melted LCD connector on the main board and the lcd flex connector mashes on the edges.  Rush fix, got it done in about 35mins. #microsoldering #datarecovery #soldering #cellphonerepair #tabletrepair #applerepair #gadget #gadgetgenie #southsound #pacificnorthwest #pmw #federalwaywa #seattle #tacomawa #electronicrepair #cellphone
#iphonex severe amoled screen connector damaged on the #logicboard and screen flex connector. #solder traces where lifted and damaged,  I had to create micro jumpers to re establish the connections on both the logic board and the screen flex cable.  Excited to get this back to our customer working again. . . #electronic #microsoldering #soldering #applerepair #gadget #washingtonstate #federalwaywa #mailinrepair #localbusiness #gadgetgenie #cellphonerepair #pnw #southsound #pacificnorthwest #seattle #tacomawa #repair #electronicrepair
#samsung #note8 sudden death, customer said they had it charging over night, woke up device no longer powered on or get  detected by PC.  USB amp meter shows 0.07amps, pushing power button didn’t do anything. First time ever working on a Note8. I have no #schematics or any type of board view.  The top area of the #logicboard felt a tad warm and not by the CPU area so I suspected possibly a shorted capacitor.  I hooked it up to DC power supply and it pulled 0.25amp from battery connector. I used upside down air can for freeze spray and found a chip that stood out. I wrote down the number in the chip and did a google search until I found some info on it. Turns out it’s a PMIC that is compatible for the Note8 and #samsunggalaxys8 .. Well what do you know, I got a donor galaxyS8 and pulled the chip off and transferred it over to the Note 8. Device boots and #datatecovery success.  #federalwaywa #electronic #pnw #gadget #washingtonstate #piercecounty #pacificnorthwest #tacomawa #seattle #southsound #cellphone #cellphonerepair #electronicrepair #microsoldering #samsungrepair #tinker #tech #ifixit #righttorepair #gadget #gadgetgenie
Took apart the #amscope for cleaning. I was having problem with my microscope camera view. Found loose screws on one of the glass prism reflectors that got mis aligned. #microscope #microsoldering #gadget #washingtonstate #electronic #pnw #technology #lab #repairshop #repair #federalwaywa #tacomawa #southsound #pacificnorthwest #westcoast #datarecovery #applerepair #samsungrepair
#iphone6s water damaged in swimming pool for a week. Short circuit was found on main power line, No power.  Restored power but had no image and no boot.  Than no PC detect due to USB controller IC. Rectified circuits required to get data completed. Got the Data. #datarecovery #mobiledatarecovery #mobileforensics #applerepair #gadget #gadgetgenie #pnw #pacificnorthwest #westcoast #electronic #cellphone #cellphonerepair #federalwaywa #tacomawa #seattle #northwest #kingcounty #piercecounty #thurstoncounty  #washingtonstate #repair #tinker #techie #instagram
