Repair Tools for Laptop and Computer
On this page i will add and describe the repair tools needed for repair laptops and computes.
Anti-Static Grounding Wrist Strap
You must have one anti-static wrist strap band when doing electronics repair, computer network testing, or just working with sensitive electronic components (integrated circuits, transistors, etc). Just wrap the adjustable strap around your wrist and clip the agitator clip to a grounded source and you’re ready to go. ESD (Electronic Static Discharge) can destroy your sensitive electronics when managed without this repair tool.
Good quality Solder Wire
Solder is a fusible metal alloy used to join together metal workpieces and having a melting point below that of the workpiece(s). Multicore solder 0,5 mm or 1mm diameter wire should be used in laptop repairs, that contains cores of mildly activated, non-corrosive rosin based flux.
Desoldering wire / Solder wick
Solder wick, also known as desoldering wick or desoldering braid, is fine, braided 18 to 42 AWG copper wire coated with rosin flux, usually supplied on a roll.
The end of a length of braid is positioned over the solder to be removed and the portion in contact with the joint is heated with a soldering iron; as it is heated, the solder melts and is wicked into the braid by capillary action.
Digital Multimeter / Tester
A multimeter or a multitester, also known as a VOM (Volt-Ohm meter), is an must have repair tool for electronic measuring instrument that combines several measurement functions in one unit. A typical multimeter may include features such as the ability to measure voltage, current and resistance.
Good Soldering Iron
A soldering iron is a hand tool most commonly used in soldering. It supplies heat to melt the solder so that it can flow into the joint between two workpieces.This is also a must have piece to add to your repair tools box for laptop repairs.
A soldering iron is composed of a heated metal tip and an insulated handle. Heating is often achieved electrically, by passing an electric current (supplied through an electrical cord or battery cables) through a resistive heating element. Portable irons can be heated by combustion of gas stored in a small tank, often using a catalytic heater rather than a flame.
