The seller made it clear the Cintiq won’t charge but it stays on while the power cord is plugged in. Once the cord is out, the Cintiq turns off immediately. The battery icon says it’s plugged in but not charging. I was hoping to find a solution online. Mar 19, · hey. My cintiq companion is starting to suffer from the infamous plugged in but not charging issue. A development corner cutting that results in a very expensive piece of equipment being a bloody paperweight. The jack design it’s self is flimsy and I suspect from its location which is close.

Sep 19, · PLEASE have a look at this gallery and diagrams, I recorded the video on the fly with haphazard editing. The gallery has a better idea of what I am describin. Sep 06, · Welcome to the inherent fault on the companion 1:) Cheap power port means it fails in what seems like % of units. I’ve managed to keep my one going for about 4 yrs but for most of the time I don’t work with it plugged in. I also keep an eye on it whilst charging, at certain angles it loses connection. I think at somepoint it will just stop. Feb 04, · If you found me through my YouTube Channel and are looking for a repair or to check stock, please contact me by email or phone:[email protected]

Anybody have experience repairing a laptop’s charging port? Joined Sep 18, Messages My cintiq companion is starting to suffer from the infamous plugged in but not charging issue.
A development corner cutting that results in a very expensive piece of equipment being a bloody paperweight. The jack design it’s self is flimsy and I suspect from its location which is close to the CPU exhaust fan that heat also increases the strain on it. They use a 3mm mircojack that is the weakest link in the chain. Now I’ve seen people resoddder these jacks but they quickly fail. Is there any other styles of ports I could replace this with.
I’m wondering if it would be possible to replace it with an Apple MagSafe 2 replacement port, and use the 65watt charger. Any insight or advice would be welcomed. Binky Death’s Steed Staff member. As far as the connector is concerned, the limiting factor is probably current – and in this case, the peak currents should be so close as to be neither here nor there. The charging circuitry may tolerate different voltages, or might not.
Who nose? From the diagram shown above, it looks like the original connector only has two pins, and it should be possible to identify them trivially with a multimeter when the charger is plugged in that is, positive and ground However, some laptop chargers and similar have an extra pin used to inform the laptop of the power it can draw from the supply.
Certainly HP and Lenovo have such arrangements, and wikipedia reckons Apple use the third pin to support a serial connection to the charger.
I’ve no idea what the charger does if the signals on this third pin are absent. That said, if it’s only the connector that’s broken, you could rewire the original wacom charger to use a different type of plug.
Perhaps you could get hold of a broken magsafe2 charger, and salvage the plug from it? I have a busted apple MagSafe 2 charger. That was a thought of converting the cintiq’s original plug to MagSafe. This would eliminate many variables.
Any advice on desoddering? Or rather what I need to do to get nice clean contacts. I wonder if that’s like in a phonojack and it tells the system the charger has been plugged in. I’ve found copper braid to be very effective for desoddering. Make sure you get the pre-fluxed sort, though. The tricky bit as always with soldering is applying the right about of heat. Joined Sep 14, Messages Age For desoldering, use copper mesh band for SMD McGyver’s method: copper wire shield of coax cable dipped in rosin or cheapest heated spring pump if you do Through-hole.
About these nasty power sockets – if there is only power and ground, you are limited to whatever fits in there. I don’t know about MagSafe, but I remember Apple used some kind of sense pins in their power units. If it’s used by computer only, it’s OK, but if power supply needs something from computer to be started there may be a problem, as well as if they put something digital into plug. They do, at least with some models. I remember very poor connectors in Rocky notebook docking stations.
It’s a few kilos of steel-enclosed docking station, fully protected against dust, sand, moisture, water, power surges.. I’ve seen 3 of them fixed, all modified for different connectors. From DIN speaker plugs to military-grade screw-on connectors.
One even with few centimeters of cable. Wally I am a banana! Staff member. At least that way you can put a smaller one back in if it doesn’t work and it’ll just have a bigger hole. Replacement MagSafe 2 ports cost around 14 dollars which isn’t as pricey as I thought.
Replacement power supply cables cost 4. The barrel jacks fail even with the companion 2 it’s a really crappy design. Also the magsafe would help with portability. There’s plenty of room on the cintiq to put one in. There’s a lot of blank space that isn’t used at all. Turns out the MagSafe plug is just two wires the centre pin is connected to a 1-wire system board in the plug which controls the led status. Originally mac chargers only work with apples with power management what ever on them.
However hacking on the lead to a power brick works Edit Here’s photos of the unit. Something not obviously visible is wrong with the jack. It looks almost like the contacts are corroaded. Even the USB ports look slightly corroraded. I notice instantly those two holes which I suspect could be used to mount the MagSafe connector too which would then have a simple hole cut in the back of the cover.
This project seems doable. I do wonder if I could just tap into the prexisting contacts on barrel jack keep it where it is and just use wires like the guy did and move the jack elsewhere.
Hell I’d mount it anywhere it’d fit as long as I could get a good charge I wouldn’t complain. Last edited: Aug 3, Found out doing a tiny bit of research, and price comparison. I got two things coming. Which is pretty close to what my fiancee left behind. And apple made the magsafe 2 to be thinner so they could throw into their laptops. This should work.
Instead of replacing the port I might just piggy back the contacts on it. Or even the best way of soldering the wires to the preexisting contacts.
This should mean I should not have to desolder anything. So i got it fixed. Doing this wasnt hard, but figuring out the final wiring was. All of the people who have repaired theres did not give good information about the wiring.
Granted they’re all artists lol. So i dont have photos of the process but I took the pictures of the zenbook mod and copied that. I found out the generic MagSafe charger also works! I am so excited the only thing I loose with this mod is the micro sd card slot due to the cords going under it. Now I have my cintiq with visual suite back! Giovanni Loverso Still Fresh.

Joined Jan 31, Messages 3, Giovanni Loverso and DrHAX anyone have advice on where to get a replacement 3-in-1 cable for a cintiq 13hd? My fiancee is still able to use the tablet no problem, but it’s just a question of time when the cable is going to break. KidPaddle Member.
