Bricked my dingoo?
« on: June 19, 2010, 09:08:01 am »
Hi.

I just opened my dingoo to make a resetbutton-mod, and to see if anything pressed the screen since i had "pressure effect" sometimes on the screen when i pressed buttons.

When i removed the battery from the board like the guide here shows, a little part ( i don't know a jack shit about electronic parts like this) on the board seemed to break.
it looks like a spool of copperwire on ceramic base. It sais 4R7 (or AR7) on top of it.
I tried to start the dingoo and I only get white screen of death.


I will add pictures soon. Here's some pictures:


Do anyone think it's repairable?

It seems like the ceramic part sat so hard it broke rather then come loose from the adhesive tape.
So far i can see the one side of the circuit did go of when the ceramic thing broke.

It's an induction for the fm receivers tuning circuit (or something similar) just short across where it was and it should work fine

Is there a way (except cutting the wire) to turn the dingoo of?
I have constant white screen of death and won't have time to continue this right now.
I'm afraid i'll drain the battery totaly if i just leave it like this.

It seems as that part that broke probably was the thing doing the pressure on the screen from the start. It's in the exact same position on the board as i had the pressure effect on my screen.
Maybe should contact the reseller. though shipping to China/HK will cost more then it's worth.

It's a pretty common problem btw, and sending it back wouldn't do anything as you've opened it.  If its constantly on then just desolder one of the battery wires, need soldering to fix it anyways

Please tell me it's only common on HK models (as that pic seems to be)..

I'd hate to think my new Dingoo is actually shoddy build construction (because it looks rather beautiful for something made to be cheap).

All A320's are cheaply made Chinese gadgets. Don't be surprised by such issues.

I for one have played with and taken apart my "HK" a lot, and I haven't had too much of a problem. I too get a little pressure wave effect on a certain part of my screen while pushing buttons, but it isn't too bad. From what I hear this isn't an uncommon problem for A320's (I think that's what Darfgarf was referring to as the "common problem"). It doesn't happen on my A330, though.

Cheap or not, to some, $80 isn't cheap..  And with the Dingoo having a rather nice MIPS CPU, it may have been designed cheap, but it IS a good gadget that could do with better build construction.

My Dingoo is already scratched up to hell, and I only had it for a week and did nothing but try and keep it clean.  Just cleaning dust off the screen scratches it, even when using a microfiber cloth.

I meant it's cheap all things considered. Yes it's a very good device, one that should probably cost more. And it WOULD cost more if they were to improve the materials and methods used to build it, as you are asking. Still, the build quality isn't really bad. I suppose it's better than most of it's peers (I wouldn't know).

I just wanted to point out that it is meant to be relatively cheap, and that has some consequences. Such as the issues described in this thread.
