by Advanced Computers Computer Repair Store

Repairing a computer is a critical task and it requires a lot of technical and mechanical skills.


Any small mistake can be dangerous and even result in a complete breakdown of your computer.


No matter how proficient you are at computer repairing, but it is really very important to consider all the safety tips.


Here we’ll be discussing some of the safety tips that you must follow while doing the tasks related to computer repair, laptop repair or Mac Repair.


Tips To Repair Computers Safely:-


·       Make Sure To Unplug The Computer:-


Repairing Computers while it is “plugged on” is the most general mistake that everyone commits. This minor mistake can result in the complete failure of your computer. Ensure to unplug the computer before starting its servicing.


In the case of laptops, there are different lights that are meant for different purposes. For Example:- For Charging, For Power Button, For Wi-Fi, etc.

If any of these lights are on then that means the laptop isn’t completely off.


Make sure all the lights are off before excluding the outer panel of the laptop. After taking off the external panel, the first step you should do is drawing out the battery.


Gadgets like mobile phones, tablets, must only be repaired after ejecting their batteries.



·       Wait Until Capacitors Drain Their Charge


A capacitor is an electronic device that stores some amount of charge in them. This charge is retained in capacitors even when the computer is plugged out. Hence, it can impose an electric shock on you while doing computer repair or laptop repair.


To avoid this, you should wait for about 1-2 minutes so that charge in the capacitors gets drained out.


·       Do Not Wear Any Metallic Jewellery


Most people neglect this precaution and suffer from electric shocks later. The metallic jewellery acts as a conductor and imposes an electric shock.Rings, bracelets, watches can make you electrocuted easily.


 Thus, make sure you don’t wear anything in your hands while repairing your computer.


·       Be Cautious Towards Burning Smell


Scorching of electronic elements isn’t very surprisingwhile repairing any device/gadget.


It is highly probable that you might sense the burning sensation/smell while doing computer repair or laptop repair tasks.


This can result in the damage of even the unimpaired parts.

To escape from this additional loss, one should:-


o   Completely hold the current work.

o   Unplug the computer or laptop

o   Wait until the computer gets cool.(Approximately for 5-10 minutes)


·       Shift to Experts


In case the problem persists even after trying every possible solution then don’t think twice and seek help from the experts.


If you keep on applying hit and trial techniques on the mother board then, there is a huge possibility of malfunctioning of other unimpaired electronic circuits.


Therefore, the expert should immediately be contacted when you think the problem is getting unmanageable.



Thus, these were some of the safety tips that you must surely ensure while doing computer repair or laptop repair tasks.
