7 Inch Notebook Power Adapter Repaired
Customer visited my place with 7 inch notebook with the complaint of power On intermittently. When I have connected notebook with power adapter on mains there was no power light LED indication on notebook.
I have tested power adapter for voltages but I did not found any output voltages and this means the culprit is the power adaptor itself.
On visual inspection I found this adapter’s output power rating is 9VDC with 1500mA.
So I have decided to open the power supply and check if I could find some burn mark or physical damage. While opening the adapter I found the wire near rubber grommet was damaged.
So for this repair work I had to open the adapter and I did not find any physical damage/ Burn mark. Tested all surrounded parts by meters everything seems to be ok.
So final conclusions I had to cut the damaged wire and resolder the good one and once the power was applied the meter read 9.10V which means the power adapter is good.
Hence I have connected the adapter to the laptop and it can be turned On and managed to bring the laptop back to life again.
