Can we fix your transponder


Repair success rate is extremely high and in the rare case that your transponder cannot be fixed there is no cost to you for the attempted repair

TIP: rechargeable type transponder check charger first.

If possible use a DC voltage meter to read the voltage on the terminals that make contact with the transponder or try a different charger.
For TranX type transponders the charger voltage should be 11-18 volts DC.
If voltage is low or there is no voltage at all then it is possible the power pack is dead and needs replacing.
Damaged cases, charging pins & mounting brackets can be replaced/repaired.
No matter how messed up the transponder is, we will attempt to fix it.

We CANNOT repair Mylaps Flex TranX, X2, or any other subscription transponder

Why transponders stop working

Rechargeable transponders usually stop working due to a worn out battery.

This is indicated by the transponder not running or the light not giving the usual indications.

AMB TranX3 transponders AMB Mylaps TranX2 transponders

For TranX transponders as pictured above: check that the charger is supplying 12 volts DC, if not then the power pack for the charger needs replacement.

We sell replacement Power Packs see Spare Parts
