Digital Audio Player Repaired
Received SAREGAMA CARVAN portable digital music player for repair, stating not working. This unit is used by customer’s old age parents.
On testing I found the unit is not powering on by pressing On/Off switch on the top.
I thought may be battery is drained totally hence when I went to connect the cable for charging internal battery, I found missing micro USB charger connector.
So I disassemble the player for repairing…
Checked battery voltage it is showing only 1v hence it is not power up.
On removing the back side PCB found Ripped USB connector.
Traces found intact even though connector is damaged because of extreme pressure for connecting the charger cable.
For replacing connector space is very tight because of plastic part of the connector, it will easily get damaged while using Hot air …….so I decided to put the external USB Connector.
Made hole on back panel of the cover to fit the connector.
After reassembling, I powered the unit:
Now unit is back to the life.
