Oregon 550 repair

Postby -OGP- » 20-05-2013 17:54

Can anybody recommend a local repairer.

The micro USB port on my 550 is connect intermittantly to charger or USB. It probably needs a re-solder or replacment.

This has come about from abuse going in and out of the car and onto usb power. Also being left set up for an extended period of time in a humid environment.
So there may be a touch of corrosion as well.

Thanks,


Andrew

Reviving this old question, because I have the same one.
Where to send old Oregon for quick repair? Dodgy loose USB port. :(
