    Some time back, a member posted the name of a company that refurbishes electronic circuit boards. I have a circuit board for my gate that needs to be repaired.

    TIA,

    Andy

    google the board identifying number. A simple open architecture board is easy to trouble shoot and repair. If it is encapsulated, that is another story. Jimmy Borum

    If that's the place in "Chicago", my experience was the repair cost me as much as a new board from Sears did. It was a board for a water softener if that means anything. Both units cost me $150. Good luck.

    Discrete component repair has gone the way of the carburetor.

    I can do rudimentary stuff with a print. I have a friend who still will do TV component replacement rather than board swapping. Of course, he has done it forever. New unit costs keep going down, as happened to Video recorders. Once 400 dollar items, and worthy of repair, they degenerated to costing more to fix than to replace.

    Usually manufacturer board swaps are the best way to go if it is available.

    IMO resorting to component replacing is only viable on pricey stuff.

    Check your manufacturer.
