Having problems with your Averatec 3200 Notebook ?
Need Help Finding Parts!
\015 I would like to know if anyone can suggest a place where I can get parts for this machine besides Ebay?I tried Averatec,but they said they don't sell parts,and wanted me to send the machine to them!I would like to buy the newer style power board with the metal brace over the DC jack,but all the places I have looked,they think they are made of GOLD!I would like to find one for around $20.Which to me sounds more then fair for something this size!Any help is greatly appreciated!Thank You very much! \015\012\015\012 Tyler\015
Here is a list of places that sell parts for Averatec, if they don't list your specific one you can try asking them directly. \015\012\015\012http://www.laptopking.com/searhbrandresults.asp?brand=averatec\015\012\015\012http://www.excelcomputerinc.com/html/xlsearchbrandresults.asp?brand=averatec\015\012\015\012As far as the cost of repair parts go non-authorized repair shops (and users) don't get to determine what a fair price is, the manufacturer does. Size and complexity isn?t the major factor in what determines the cost a repair part is sold at. Lots depends on how many laptops were manufactured, what percentage their experience says they need to stock for their warranty repairs (about a year if nothing goes wrong) and then to the end of life (about two years after that). They calculate the number and add that into the manufacturing run while the laptops are still in production then the go into storage which is really expensive. Keeping inventory is expensive; it not only ties up their money in direct manufacturing costs, stocking is incredibly expensive as well. So as you can see the less they have to keep the better they are so they don?t really want to sell parts to anyone. There are always exceptions, especially with popular laptop lines like the ThinkPad and Dell. \015\012\015\012As far as Ebay goes sometimes the prices are out of line but most of the time they are considerably cheaper than what the going rate is, just have to know the market for that particular item. \015\012\015\012I didn?t stay up late to write this rambling explanation (it?s really late) to try to antagonize you so please don?t take offense. Unfortunitly I suspect someone will but never the less I find that it?s good for people to understand why a repair part is so expensive at times. It makes them a better consumer and much more careful about what they buy. Sometimes what seems like a good deal can wind up being more expensive in the long run
