How to Fix a Macbook Magsafe Charger (L Type)

IMG_1350My Macbook MagSafe charger for the past few months would occasionally stop charging. I would need to patiently wiggle the cord to a certain position to get it to start charging again. This is similar to the HP charger I issue I fixed several years ago.  I know from gut that there is a break inside the main magsafe and the cord. As I’m a DIY kinda of guy I’ve decided to fix it. Instead of buying a new charger of which will cost me $$.

Things you need to get this job done.

  • A pair of pliers,
  • thick cloth,
  • soldering iron,
  • soldering lead and
  • electrical tape.

Step 1: Wrap the pliers with cloth and clamp on the magnetic part and gently pull it from the body casing.
Step 2: Gently pull the innards out from the casing.

Step 3: Cut about an inch from the base.

Step 4: Unsolder from the base, if you can salvage those black shrinkage thing the better.

Step 5: Prepare the wiring then slightly cut the outer cover to reveal the wire and pull them aside. Then make another cut about a few cm on the inner cover to expose wiring.

Step 6: Push the insides back to the body casing and then start soldering back the base.

Step 7: Snap back the magnetic tip to the base. That should be it.

Transfer Analog MiniDV to a MacBook Pro with Firewire 800

If your like me who still uses an Analog miniDV to capture videos on special events, since early 2008 the MacBook Pro now uses a Firewire 800 and went away with the Firewire 400. You would need special cable or adapter to get the job done.

The last MacBook Pro I used which was issued to me when I was working for the local government was an older model around (2007) not the new unibody. Port available to me back then was the  Firewire 400.  The cable I used was a 4pin to 6 pin to convert my analog miniDV to digital.

Here is my Sony HC 32 cradle for my analog miniDV  where I hook up the 4 pin to the second slot marked DV.

So you can either get an adapter that converts Firewire 400 to Firewire 800.

Or  get a 4pin to 9 pin Firewire cable.

I got the 4pin to 9pin cable which cost P900( around $21-$22) in a store I found in SM Megamall.

Now I started to convert all those analog miniDVs I have collected and planning to get a digital camcorder in the future or a point and shoot camera that shoots HD videos.

Sun Broadband Wireless for reliable internet backup

Last week we moved to our new rented house from our old apartment. And with moving comes transferring of my PLDT DSL line which takes awhile. I have had my  Globe Tattoo kit since 2009 which I use for backups. I haven’t used it for exactly three months.  I was not thrilled when after hooking it up, it would connect but no webpages open, the download speed is 0.00. Also the I can’t register with it’s SUPERSURF50 promo. It would send but no reply.  I wasted alot of load trying to connect, disconnect.  I decided to do a quick search so I connected via 3G on my android phone and made a search, turns out there are alot of users having the same problem. It seems Globe’s network is congested as it gets. I called the tech number but no help. After reading which one among Globe Tattoo, Smartbro and Sun Broadband Wireless is the best. Sun Broadband Wireless stands out.

Fixing power problems with your LG Flatron Monitor (LG1753S)

A couple of days ago during the weekend, I booted up my trusted pc lo and behold I heard the Windows startup sound but my LG monitor (LG1753S) screen is blank. I had this monitor for about 3 or 4 years now without any glitch. Used to leave it open for 72 hours sometimes. And this time it had failed to start up. So after checking the power is properly plugged, I shut down my pc again. Turned off the EPS and turn back on, the monitor power lit up(hooray?) but after a few seconds its gone again.

So its final my LG screen is dead. After a couple of googling on my alternate internet device(HTC Hero) I found out it’s easy to fix. Thanks to this website for the amazing archive of fixing LCDs. http://www.ccl-la.com/blog/index.php/lg-l226wtq-bf-monitor-repair/. Just several capacitors failing me, being the jack of all trade that I am I decided I’ll fix it myselft. I went to my trusted electronics shop and purchased some capacitors according to the article, but found out it wasn’t the right one. LOL. I opened up the monitor and upon inspection the capacitor ratings are 4 1000uf 25v, 1 470uf 25v and 1 680uf 25v high temp. So back to the electronics shop. So after removing the old capacitors and soldering the new ones. The Monitor is good and alive again. Cost around $3 only for the whole thing.

Sorry for no pictures as the pictures got corrupted.

So a little bit of guts and the need to save on service fee, just DIY(Do-It-Yourself), make sure you have the right tools, a phillips screwdriver, soldering iron, soldering lead and check the ratings of the capacitors before purchasing.
