March 28th, 2018 - Some site changes...

 
First off, happy spring!!

   I have finished the SSL implementation and fixed the SSL issues with the store, so no more errors during checkout!  Google and their infinite wisdom decided to discontinue ReCaptcha v1, which this site utilized to keep spam down.....implementing v2 turned into more of a fiasco than I expected.  A very special thanks to Per Hansson of our forums for his help updating our code to meet the requirements of v2, and this is now complete.  These changes are reflected on the repair request forms, and store registration.

  Back in April 2002, I had an idea to start a business (actually spinoff of another business) servicing motherboards at component level amid the mass capacitor failures plaguing the PC industry.  Fifteen years later, the sun is setting on this crazy little niche that I did very well with...  To get 15 years from one little niche in tech is absolutely unheard of, and was a hell of a good run!!  The store boomed from its launch all the way up until about a year ago.  Over the last 6 months or so, I have sold very few capacitors.  Once my stock depletes, I will be shutting down the Badcaps.net store.  I have no estimated date for this, but I don't foresee it happening this year...  However; if you need caps, you might get your order in sooner than later!  If I run out of a value, I will not be restocking them.   The store was launched in 2007 and had a great long run...but like every business, it has a lifespan, and its time is up. If you are in need of repair service, nothing will change on that front, Badcaps.net isn't going anywhere when it comes to offering repair services.

  FEAR NOT, I have NO PLANS to stop taking in repair work!!  I will continue to accept motherboard repairs indefinitely.  I have allocated a specific portion of my capacitor inventory for repairs only, which won't be available in the store.  I still get a bit of repair work from old preferred clients along with new clients as well.  That said, I no longer work Badcaps.net on a full-time basis and have moved onto some other interests & pursuits.  Repair ETA's are still as advertized though, no worries!  :)

BADCAPS.NET is cleaning out the attic!!


   The Badcaps.net 'rummage sale' has been quite successful, most of it is gone from this round.  I have more that I am preparing to add to the site, so keep checking back!  I also have a bunch of IT Grade network stuff to add as well.  This is your chance to get some insanely awesome buys on used but working hardware I have on hand.  This hardware consists of unclaimed repairs that have been here over a year, hardware I've taken on trade, and hardware that has been in "goodie boxes" over the years.  Every piece for sale has been tested and/or reworked/recapped, then cleaned, and is in perfect working condition.  The garbage and non-functional stuff has since been sent to the recyclers.  You may view my hardware for sale HERE.  The list of hardware will be progressively added to, so always check back!

Badcaps.net has EXPRESS SERVICE Available!!


   Have an emergency repair???  Don't want to wait for the Standard Service?  Click HERE for details on Badcaps.net's new Express Repair Service!  The average turnaround time for Standard Repair Service is roughly 10-15 days in my shop (weekends excluded).  My new Express Repair Service reduces the turnaround time to no more than 4 days in my shop (weekends excluded)!!  Express Repair Service is an additional $25.00 per board, and is completely optional.  Full details HERE.

 

   I also wanted to take a second to mention that I DO NOT service television boards.  The good folks over at shopjimmy.com and a few other parts houses have referred a lot of people to me seeking repair of their defective television boards.  I do not accept these for repair!  The reason is that I can not test them....and I am not the kind of technician that will service a device, and then return it to the customer untested and hope it works.  That is a recipe for disaster, and I just can't do it...sorry.  I would service a television if the entire set were sent, but that's hardly cost-effective, so I just felt it best to stay out of the online television repair business.
