Repairing a fried driver?

Hi, as mentioned here, I have in my hands a fried 7135 magentic switch driver.
Is possible to repair the driver, since I can’t find a replacement? Sad

Contact CNQG and ask if they can get you a new driver. If not, there probably will not be any direct deplacements for it.

Truthfully, I don't think you can. You could try replacing every single part with a new one but it would probably be easier to just buy a new light.

Is so hard to find a part???

It was probably a one time run of drivers, for that particular light. That would not be unusual.

Take close up pictures of the driver. I’ll tell you if I see anything obvious that can be easily replaced/repaired.

I am currently extremely busy with work. Please do not expect a response from me quickly. I will be dropping in as time permits, but the amount of time I can dedicate to responding to topics and PMs is very limited.

Unfortunately, Nothing obvious. It could be almost any of the parts on that board that went bad.

I will tell you that the driver failed, most likely, because it is a piece of dog dung. Seriously; Junk. Garbage. Crap…. They used the cheapest components in existence and had a one-armed two-year-old hand solder it together. Hate to tell you, but even if there were something obvious, it’s really not worth fixing..
