Help please - I am looking for recommendations for a reputable electronic repairer as my 4x4 HD Base T matrix failed on Friday night (I imported from the UK 3 years ago), I have been in touch with the manufacturer and they have suggested it sounds like the power supply has failed and that I look to get that replaced.

 

Work Downtown Auckland (have my car at work so can travel) and live in Silverdale so any recommendations (handy to either or someplace in between) for a reputable electronics repairer would be hugely appreciated.

 

Cheers

Can anyone else vouch for http://www.phillipselectronics.co.nz/ in Penrose?  I had one excellent experience with them a couple of years ago.

 

I assume you are talking about an internal power supply rather than an easily-replaceable wall-wart power supply?  Or is it an external PSU but a custom connector?

Have you opened it up to check for any signs of bulging caps etc on the power supply?

Not something I am comfortable doing, or that I would even know what I was looking at, would rather someone who knew what they where doing opened it up. smile

Google bulged capacitors for what to look for.

 

If you can identify that they have done that then it means you dont really need a skilled repairer as its something that any tech can do. If they look ok then chances are its beyond the average cellphone screen swapping and similar type repair place and will need to go to someone with actual experiance on that type of equipment.

Do you have a model number of the device ? There may be similar issues that could be googled about ?

we(where I work) used to often use them for component level repairs that we couldnt do in house.
That was many years back though . Back then they were very good , and helpfull. Easy to deal with.

 

Note , they arnt Philips the international giant , they are a kiwi firm with an all to similar name smile
