the circuit layouts and prototype single-sided and Double sided P.C.B. to spec.
This is only a representation,   whereas in reality, the process is quite involved and does not have parts on it.
As stated, yes, it is an excellent idea to condense a circuit into the smallest possible size thus saving on
the board's physical dimensions, however....in doing so, there are strict "electronic" rules that govern the
passage of electrons along a particular circuit board track which may induce a new headache that is called
cross-talk or "electronic noise" from one circuit to another, please be very aware of these constraints and
there are trade-offs in any circuit board layout or design, speed and noise immunity are the most sought after
features requiring " ground planes " to shield or rather contain and reduce "cross talk" or high frequency
" parasitic " oscillations from one track through a circuit board track to another.

As of today, March 15th 2017, unless you provide us with an acccurate circuit diagram of the goods you wish us to repair, we will
not be able to service your goods. This decision was made due to the amount of customers who have just left "goods" here, unpaid
for and said it is now our problem , without a circuit diagram as they did not wish to pay for work done, nor pay for their present
up-to-date service bill and any further works to continue tracing out the faults and effecting a good repair. We are out of pocket !
This decision has been implemented by the given rise in losses in company time and of course, loss of income due to failure by
customers to pay us. If your product's circuit board is less than 3 ~ 5 yrs of age, possibly or maybe, if it is over 6 yrs to 10 yrs,
it may be remotely repairable, depending on the brand, the accurate age, parts availability and how bad it is damaged.
If it is over 10 to 15 years, then perhaps it is high time buy a new item and get a twelve or twenty-four or more month warranty.
Regarding re-winding of small transformers. We will no longer perform this task based on the time to carefully disassemble them to
carefully study and note the number of windings and what direction they are wound and more importantly, what killed the windings.
These financial losses are costs we cannot and will not absorb. Time spent in carrying out a repair on your behalf has to be covered
under our company time. Time is money as they say. We are not a benelevent society nor are we a charity. We have expenses and
overheads to cover on a daily basis. We don't want your dead products left here unpaid for as these are re-cyle binned and trashed..
We like being paid for the sweat and time searching various resources to locate what a particular part is, considering there are
literally many millions of electronic parts made since 1970 by many manufacturers of their own devices, some still in business,
some are gone or absorbed into newer companies by mergers and aquisitions. Eg: Phillips, then NXP, New name it is EXPERIA.
The search for electronic component data sheets takes company time, circuit diagrams can sometimes assist in most
most cases, a with good a positive result for the items you brought for us to repair are working. That is our everyday goal.
There's no-one here called Nostradamus to make predictions or no-one with Superman's X-ray vision to diagnose problems
by just looking or glancing at a PCB. The age old question, how much is it going to cost me ? Hold on, where's my crystal ball?
It is not a broken cup, it is not a bent table leg, nor is it a cracked engine piston. We only deal in and work in absolutes.
In electronics, THERE IS NO ROOM FOR ERROR ! It is an exacting science learned over many, many years. Try 47 years.
Please note: For repair work , it is advisable to acquire a correct circuit diagram prior to delivery of your goods
or equipment to be serviced and repaired. If one is not supplied, then we will need to do " reverse engineering "
of the circuit and tracing it out fully, thus establishing a correct operational circuit schematic diagram to work
with for fault finding. Without a circuit diagram is like trying to travel to Canberra blindfolded. It simply costs time
The cost of tracing out and creating a circuit diagram is always borne by the customer/client. No free rides.
If you do not have a schematic, you should procure one as soon as possible, making sure it is the best circuit
diagram exactly for your valuable PCB (s) you wish repaired. Also, does your PCB have esoteric components ?
Then data sheets must be found to support what they are. There are many millions of components made
since 1972. What ones do you have ? Are they specialised ? Are they still available ? Who stocks them today ?
We do not do quotes for electronic equipment work as no-one can make asumptions without fully finding the faults
as there are so many variables in service work and no-one is nostradamas and can make a certain prediction ever.
Having an accurate circuit diagram will typically make service work a whole lot simpler and more precisely better.
This will cut down wasted time in trying to establish how the circuit works and what faults stop it. There is no
guess-work here. We do not own a "crystal ball" and no-one here is called Nostradamus.
