Basic Survey & Possible Repair
For where a fault needs diagnosing
If you just want something replacing Directed work is more cost effective.
Minimum fee charged (from £10)
I give the unit a basic check out, dismantling to a degree usually, to investigate the problem.
* If I find it can be repaired reasonably quickly and within cost restraints, I do so and charge the fee again.
* If I find it beyond economical repair, it's reported to you.
* If a firm quote or estimate can be supplied, it is.
* Otherwise I report what options there may be for you.
You get best results when I have good, clear information about the issue from you.

Should be no problem.
Let me know exactly what you need doing to what in an email, and I'll give you a quote.
Minimum £10. We are usually talking £20-40 plus the cost of the parts. You may supply your own parts.
I take no responsibility for your diagnosis if it doesn't work out. I will highlight if I notice a problem along the way, but I won't be looking for one. This is about giving you access to my dismantling, soldering, assembly and test skills only.
