The ASIC bitcoin miner hash board consists of many serially connected ASIC chips. When they work, they will be in a high-temperature environment for a long time. In this environment, it is easy to burn the chip or scatter the solder due to high temperature which makes the hash board or the mining machine unable to work and no hash rate.

In the practice of Hash board repair, the most difficult thing is how to accurately find the damaged ASIC chip, because the chip is usually located under the heat sink and impossible to observe with our eyes, so we can only rely on equipment for detection.

In the past when people who offering Antmienr repair service to test and read via waveforms to judge chips damaged or not. But this method needs professional electronic knowledge or you will see it's very hard. Even you are enough professionally but the accuracy of this method will produce some errors and hard to founding damaged chips.

Antminer hash board tester - Antminer chips fixture comes out

To better simplify the operation process and improve work efficiency, a Chinese company has developed a professional Hash board inspection tool called Antminer chips fixture or Antminer test fixture or Antminer tester. It completes the detection work by scanning the chips of the entire hash board, with simple operation and high precision.

The test result will be directly displayed on the computer screen and the status of the hash board can be understood more intuitively, including the number of chips, hash rate, temperature value, calculation of the method, and other parameters.

If the chip on the Hash board is bad, the test fixture will stop sending signals when scanning the chip and prompting the chip number. Next, we only need to test the voltage and resistance of the chip with a multimeter to determine whether it is damaged, and then replace it.

How to use Antminer chips fixture to lock the damaged chips

let's start with the ASIC miner Antminer s9 hash board for an example. Before starting the test, we need to install the USB driver and test software on the computer. Then connect the USB interface of the test fixture to the computer and perform the correct port configuration. After completing these steps turn on the power to the test fixture. At this point, the computer screen will show some progress. This is the self-check procedure of the test fixture. The Hash board can only be tested after the self-check is completed.

When testing the Hash board, we need to connect the 12V power supply to it then connect the data cable of the chips fixture to the Hash board then press the "Test" button of the test fixture to start testing. At this time, will display the test progress and display key parameters on your computer screen. usually, the test process runs to the end and displays 2-3 "OK", it means that the Hash board can be work and chips not damaged.

In the testing, if you saw "No Hash Board" on the computer screen, it means the test fixture cannot recognize the Hash board. Please check the connection of the data cable and power input. If the above two points are normal, you need to use a multimeter to check whether the voltage of the hash board voltage is normal and whether the voltage of the MOS chip is normal. If the computer screen prompts "0 chips detected", it means that the chip has not been recognized, please check the first and last chip, because these two chips are responsible for the initial signal transmission and signal return when one of them has a problem. When this happens, there will be no signal on the entire Hash board. If the chip number is prompted on the computer screen, such as "23 chips detected", it means that the 22nd chip has problems. This is due to the signal sending direction. When the 22nd chip is damaged, the detection signal will stop between the 22nd and 23rd chips, so the test fixture will prompt 23 errors. It is recommended to use a multimeter again to check the voltage and resistance of the 22nd chip and determine whether it is damaged. This situation is very common.

Huge demand and high profit

Once you have mastered how to repair the hash board, you can open a store and offer Bitmain miner repair local repair services. Like the united states, the Antminer repair service is very popular. When you mastered this skill you will get a high profit.

When we tested different hash boards, the TF card of the Antminer test fixture needs to be replaced. TF cards have different types of built-in test files, and the basic files for running test programs vary from chip to chip. For example, the architectures of 1387, 1396, and 1397 chips are different, so they will have three versions (that is, three conversion files).

When testing the Hash board of different chips, you need to refresh the corresponding conversion file in advance, and then insert the test file of the matching TF card.

How to use Antminer BM1387 tin tool to replace damaged chips? In the repair work of the h ash board, the most common problem is to replace the ASIC chip, which  is the most easily damaged part of the h ash board. In this article, I will use A ntminer as an example to show my friends how to use Antminer BM1387  tin tools to replace damaged chips?  Although there are many chip models, most of the pin positions and sizes are the same. ASIC chips are usually small in size and the pins are arranged closely, which brings great difficulty to maintenance and replacement. Because when replacing a new ASIC chip, it is necessary to accurately apply solder paste on each tiny pin, then heat it to melt, and finally fix it on the h ash board. For how to solve this problem, after various attempts, we finally chose a convenient and efficient way: making professional tin tools (ASIC tin tools). Its principle is to fix the chip on the base, then use a special steel mesh to align the pins of the chip, and

What is the Antminer BM1489 ASIC chip?

What is the Antminer BM1489 ASIC c hip? Antminer  BM1489 ASIC chip is an ASIC chip on the Bitmain Antminer L7 hash board for mining Litecoin and Dogecoin. In the integrated circuit industry, an ASIC is considered an integrated circuit designed for a specific purpose. The characteristic of ASIC is to design and manufacture special integrated circuits according to user requirements. The chips used for mining are called ASIC miner chips. Compared with general-purpose integrated circuits, ASICs have the advantages of smaller size, lower power consumption, improved reliability, improved performance, enhanced confidentiality, and reduced mass production costs. In terms of mining hash rate, ASICs are tens of thousands of times or higher than contemporary CPUs and GPUs, so ASIC chips on the market are also more popular than them.

What are the common procedures for repairing Antminer L3+ hash board?

What are the common procedures for repairing Antminer L3+ hash board? Common repair process 1. Routine inspection: First of all, visually inspect the hash board to be repaired to observe whether there is any displacement, deformation, or scorching of the small heat sink? If any, you must deal with it first; if the small heat sink is displaced, remove it first, wash off the original glue, and re-adhesive after the repair is passed. Secondly, after the visual inspection is no problem, the impedance of each voltage domain can be tested first to detect whether there is a short circuit or an open circuit. If found, it must be dealt with first. Thirdly, check whether the voltage of each voltage domain reaches 0.8V, and the voltage difference of each voltage domain shall not exceed 0.05V. If the voltage of a certain voltage domain is too high or too low, the circuits in the adjacent voltage domain generally have abnormal phenomena. Need to investigate the reason first. 2. After the routine te

How to check and replace ASIC miner cooling fan and PSU cooling fan?

How to check and replace ASIC miner cooling fan and PSU cooling fan? Miner fan or PSU fan is almost the most vulnerable component because of the continuous work of miners. High-strength and high-speed working methods can easily cause damage to its bearings and internal coils. When the fan is damaged, the miner or PSU will lose heat dissipation and cannot work or damage the chip. Therefore, regular inspection and replacement of bad fans is an essential job of maintaining miners. Both ASIC miners and GPU miners use a large number of cooling fans. Depending on the device model, the fan specifications used are also different. Normally, the most common fan sizes are: 4cm, 6cm, 12cm, 14cm. The standard voltage is 12V, the current is 0.27A to 7.2A, and the power cord is 2 to 6 pins. The specific size of the fan to be selected needs to be determined according to the device. When these fans fail, it isn't easy to detect from the appearance because one piece of equipment is equipped with 2 t
