  1. What most likely kill the hub? Could it be repaired in general?

    It's a Samsung PUH-7000NB.

  2. Hubs are so cheap -- most are made in <ahem> China -- you might as well
    replace it.

    This might also be a good time to put a USB 3.0 card in the computer.

    Presumably it's powered by a plugpack, which may have died, and be
    replacable with something equivalent from your local electronics store.

    Otherwise I'd expect it to be beyond salvage.

    Sylvia.
     
  4. Considering your location...what would it cost you to replace?

    Don't wanna waste it *IF* it could be repaired easily... :)

    If you take it apart, you'll likely find that it consists of a single IC
    and four USB sockets soldered to a board. There *might* be some capacitors.

    There's not a lot there to repair.

    You did try a different cable didn't you?

    Sylvia.

    Hii,
    Is you time that cheap? New one may cost ~5 bucks.
     
  7. Extra credit: Calculate the cost of handling a zero cost repair.
    We are caught in a dilemma... If stuff is made to a high quality standard,
    then it won't break down very often, and won't need the repair. But -- to
    some degree -- we need stuff to break down to encourage people to buy new
    technology, which appears at an ever-faster rate.

    Paperwork, sure. But charging your customers to clean up the mess on
    your bench? I wouldn't be advertising that ...
