An Active Speaker With Bad Power Port Repaired
A guy came to see my brother next door. As we were talking he asked me something about a broken power port for an active speaker if I can fix it and that will not cost too much money for repair.
As you can see, the power port is broken and needed a replacement. I agreed to the repair because I have plenty of these ports in the shop that I bought for cheap off the internet and I was willing to help out as much as possible.
I took about six screws off the back cover and I took the inside board out for inspection and I saw two problems there;
the power port and a lot of cold soldering joints; both issues have to be addressed.
I took my soldering iron out and with the fume extractor on I started re soldering every joint on that board and once I was done
with that I cleaned the board and headed to the next issue, the power port replacement.
I de soldered the old broken power port off the board and you could see that in the previous photo and then soldered the new replacement.
Here is the new port replacement that was about to be soldered on that board for that active speaker.
And here is the finished product of that power port already soldered on board.
I reassembled everything back together and tested the speaker. Everything was working according to specifications.
The customer was still around talking to my brother when I told him that the speaker was up and running. I could see a wide smile on his face when he told me that his daughter who owns it will be delighted to get her speaker back repaired and that put a wider smile on my face.
