FS: Philips x 56 laptop - faulty £120.00

Hello
I have bought this computer over a couple of years ago but about a year ago it stopped charging so have not used it since. Used randomly as a back up for browing internet/ Itunes etc... Always postponed repairing and never got around to.
It has excellent specs and if the fault is repaired it would work without any problems, so if there are any computer repairs savvys out there this can be a bargain for you.
I paid around £500 at the time. I might have the box for it - need to check if it;s still in the garage and have the charger for it.

These are the specs

12.1" Widescreen/WXGA TFT LCD
16 DDRII SDRAM
Wireless
IEEE1394 x 1
USB2.0 x3
Long Battery Life (up to 4 hours)
4-in-1 media card reader (SD, MS Pro, MMC, MS)
1.85Kg Extra Light
Full size keyboard
Express Card 34/35
Latcheless LCD Cover
Intel Graphoc Media Accelerator
Shipping/Payment:
Collection or £15 courier or collect is preferred options

Any queries please ask!

Thanks :)

I have tried using a different charger and it still does not charge up- i think it is a issue with the charge on the inside of the laptop

Cheers!

Hi DVS_Dee,

pics now up

I forgot the most importan bit! :oops:

It's a intel Core 2 Duo 1.8 GHz but cant remember if it has 1 or 2 GB of Memory :oops:

Have you enquired as to why it wont charge and the total costs to repair how old id the laptop?as it may not be cost effective to pay for repair given that its £120 to buy and then repair as deals out there in the sale for BNIB under £300 for 1gb memory

Hi Crustine,

no have not enquiried because I have bought a cheap netbook not long ago so dont really need this anymore. You made a fair comment but if someone knows how to repair it (or can get someone they know to repair) then this is a good deal for the specs.
#6
Many thanks for taking the time to reply i'll pass on this and keep looking but Good Luck in your sale Happy New year:thumbsup:
#7

i will offer you £50 all in posted to me, as it needs work & parts & it might be a full motherboard replacement etc,,,, ,

cheers

Hi, as you say it does not charge? Does it get any power at all through a PSU? It should work without a battery I would imagine.

Is the pin at the rear loose?

Thanks.

hi Subaru, thanks for the offer - If you dont mind I will have a little thing about it I was hoping a little more but I can see your point.

If I put the battery on and the main powere supply to it, it wont charge the battery and it wont start the computer. I have not tried with a fully charged battery as I dont have one :oops: Without a battery and with the mains on it doesnt charge that's why I say it's an issue with the charge on the pc itself not a battery or charger fault. I have bought another charger too and is the same.

The point where you insert the power lead doesnt seem to be loose at all, :thumbsup:

and that is not a dent by the way., just an icon, pic is not very clear

i had an x57 - wouldnt charge battery, but still powered on, common problem with phillips with the batts stopping charging

Thanks for the reply. If it were a loose pin or something I would have made an offer but with no power getting to the board I will have to pass as it could be the motherboard itself which is way over my head.

so does the computer run off the mains?

no

thanks for letting me know Beemer Mad


so it is as dead as a Dodo then?

£50 is a good offer for a comp that doesn't work at all - I'd snatch his hand off :)

Not really. I dont think is the mother board at all the fact is that it wont charge the battery and work off the mains that I think is due to probably a faulty charging circuit. The problem is the power supply not motherboard.

But you've tried another power supply and it gives the same result.

The motherboard is the problem of soo many things in a laptop, and I would guess it is something to do with that, even if its the dc connector on the motherboard, as that could also bee the problem. Its not an overly easy thing to fix, but can be done.
As a guide, most repair places will charge about £100 to fix it - its the taking apart and replacing thats the prob :thumbsup:
