Pinebook doesn't charge anymore
#1
Dear folks,

my Pinebook won't charge any more; there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the charger brick though. I followed the advice on this forum for battery problems but that only made things worse but I did discover that indeed its the charger circuit.

For the battery reset, i had to unplug the battery cable while the mains was on but this instantly gave a power loss to the machine so no power was arriving from the power cable and it was just running on fumes so to say of the little that was still in the battery although it showed 0% power. The situation is now that it runs on the fumes but at the same time reports there is no battery :-S

Is this charger part replaceable and what PCB is it? The USB connector on the PCB with the power plug and the SDcard is in working order so i doubt its the cabling between the PCBs. Can I order a new side PCB or do I need to replace the main PCB?

With regards,
Reinoud Zandijk
