T30 motherboard info + pics please

#1 Post by punkieys17 » Mon Apr 20, 2020 3:15 pm

So my T30 wont charge the battery. Im about to tear it down to check the fuses. Can anyone help with pics of the motherboard. Im just trying to understand if the mobo has fuses on top and below...so will I need to remove the mobo to fully check. Pics of the areas around them would be really great. There was a T30 mobo pic post years ago but they are now locked in imageshack and despite having an account I cannot get to them. Any help greatly appreciated

Many thanks for the schematics and link to T43 charging problem. The T43 suggests there maybe a fuse on the underside of the PCB thats key to the battery charging circuit - I have provisionally checked those on top of the PCB but didnt extarct the board to see underneath. So next rainy lockdown day will be T30 stripping day. Will post how I get on.....
