Hi
Quite interesting idea with that 1st post, before you can start a new thread.
I might to use it on my vB forum

I'm Undergrad of Electronics, but I'm not working in this industry.
I registered here because I've got a monitor to fix.

And that should be a piece of cake...if I'd have a value of that bloody resistor...

5PM already...and so many things on ToDo list....NOOOOOOOOO ;D

G'day folks
I am a retired psychologist who likes to dabble in fixing and tweaking older computers and other electronic and electrical gadgets as a hobby. My first job was a radio/electronics tech in civil aviation from early 70s, an interest I gained from my father, who was a radio operator in the air force during WW2. Computers were just coming into civil aviation in the early 80s when I left to become a psychologist, so I only had experience with early logic circuits under my belt by then (AND, OR, NOT gates, operational amplifiers etc). Early microprocessors such as the Intel 8086/8088 and Motorola M6800 were big then.
My first personal computer was an M6800 based Amiga 500 rather than an x86 based machine. Its claim to fame in the mid 80s was that it could multi-task. I indulged myself by purchasing the extended memory module, so that the machine had double the standard memory, a whole 1MB of RAM. It served me well as a word processor during my study, and even handled a basic flight simulator game as I recall.
My first "tower" computer was fitted with the high speed Rambus DRAM (600MB, to which I added another 1GB), and had Win ME installed. The introduction of Win XP provided my first experience of installing an OS myself.
Once XP reached EOL, I switched to Linux. Ubuntu Unity DE would not render properly on my machine (now a Dell Dimension 3100), with just a 30MB AGP video card, so I progressed through Lubuntu, Xubuntu to Kubuntu. I settled on the K desktop, but switched over to Linux Mint KDE, which I find a nicely polished and stable OS.
This exercise has been an interesting reminiscence for me; haven't thought about some of this for a long time. Hopefully not to boring for others.
Cheers

Hey all! Glad I found this forum. I've got a lot of experience on fixing and trouble shooting various electronics. I'm no EE or programmer, but I know my way around electronics.

In the past i've mostly worked on older video game consoles, fixing them or upgrading old handhelds with more modern components.

However, I have not dug around in TVs much. I'm looking forward to learning a bit more here.

I'm a 28 year old music teacher just starting his career, but my hobbies all involve working with my hands.

First post. It's late and I'll certainly be back later today when I'm awake. Just researching/beginning the project of PSU repair on Apple G4 MDD. I've a basic knowledge of the process and have a few flat panel TV power supply repairs under my belt. Hopefully, the MDD PSU project will be as successful. Hello y'all.
