Fantastic advice. After being told by Lenovo I needed to shell out £110 for a new mobo when it just had a charging socket issue I took it upon myself to see if I could fix it. This website helped take it apart and I found that the charging socket is just a micro daughter-board.

If you have a problem with charging then go to http://www.replacebase.co.uk and search for Lenovo A2109A. They have all the parts.

I replaced the daughter board and battery for about £10 incl del. Parts arrived yesterday and I have fitted. Works a treat. Not sure what amazes me the most, the low cost of the parts and excellent service by replacebase or the fact Lenovo tried to rip me off.

These instructions are spot on.

Well done

If there is an SD Micro memory card installed, REMOVE IT!, before the back cover. Otherwise, the card reader/writer will be damaged.
