Electronic repairs

I need a button on my E-bike soldering which none of the bike shops seem to be able/want to do. Are there any electrical repair shops that people can recommend in the ZH region?

TIA

Re: Electronic repairs

I guess no one wants to the repair because lots of risk for such low pay. If anyone attempts a fix and the thing is broken again 2 weeks later, you might talk bad stuff of the shop for life. So, from their perspective it makes sense to refuse the job and sell you a new component which has some warranty behind.

Of course, from the consumer perspective this looks wasteful and expensive. The alternative is doing the soldering the lose wire/button yourself.

Another alternative is to ask to one of the workshops recommended by Provelo, they might be a bit more open to repairs, but don't expect much https://www.provelozuerich.ch/leistu...achgeschaefte/

Can't vouch for it but https://reparabel.ch/ looks like the sort of place that might help. Good luck

Re: Electronic repairs

Seach on here for repair shops. Many regions run them once a month. Or buy a soldering iron and learn to solder. I haven't the skill, so I taught my daughter.
