Introduction: Fixing a Garage Remote Control
I crushed my control unintentionally so this is how i fix it.
Step 1: Repare Damage on Electronic Part
I detect two damaged parts:
-One of the connections of the battery had broken.
-One of the pci components was separated from the board, so it did not made contact.
To fix the problems I used a guitar string. 1st giving it the shape of a spring and soldering it to the pci board and then useing it like a bridge bettwen the board and the other componenet.
Step 2: Desing the New Case
As the casing was destroyed I thought about designing and 3D printing one myself.
I made an ergonomic design with some snaps so no screws are necessary for fitting it all, to finish i add some slots for easy dismount so i can change the battery easily.
Step 3: ASSEMBLY
To finish the garage remote control y just mount all parts and test it was working properly.
