Laptop Repair in the Philippines

Let’s visit an indoor market in the Philippines that has a whole floor dedicated to repairing your favorite gadgets!

For anyone curious. I was trying to shoot a review of a powerbank that can also charge laptops. The powerbank didn’t have the right adapter for my laptop, so I made my own. But I stupidly trusted the markings on the cable without checking the polarity myself. So I ended up connecting the charger with reversed polarity and it busted the laptop.

I took the laptop to Greenhills Shopping Center and after diagnosing the damaged component(s), they looked through a few random motherboards and scavenged the part(s) to repair my laptop.

The repair cost P1300 (25 USD, 19 GBP) which seems a little high considering the actual cost of the component but you need to take into account the years of experience they have, the time and cost of sourcing various random parts and of that they need to earn a living.

Most of the tech repair here in the PH is a SCAM, they will switch your parts, leaves another part broken for some reasons. ask more money… avoid the muslims or your gonna be ripped! 😉

Chris Tanada says:

you could have gone to Gilmore QC, its near Greenhills. i always bring a laptop or pc there to fix and i havent had any problems since. you can be more confident in there because most people who are tech savvy or just looking for a cheaper price and are buying multiple pc for their computer shops go there.

Alejandro Rubio says:

You said it right here we would charge you 180 to fix that issue. Cost here sucks, but remember we pay higher wages too
