Hello, all! Happy to find a new forum for folks like me who like to repair and refurbish computers. I've been collecting for a while, and have many examples of 80' and 90's computers. Mostly PCs, but several others such as Apples, Amiga and PS/2.

My collection is beginning to show its age, as more and more issues are beginning to crop up. That's where this forum comes in. I found you all while looking for replacement capacitors for a several motherboards and PSUs. Very much looking forward to joining in the fun and getting these computers back to working order.

Cheers!

Hello everyone! I'm satvu as that, satellite dishes etc, is what I use to specialize in. Since the clamp came down, I now work on computers and have just started to delve into sets with broken panels or bad boards.

Discovered this when looking for panel crossovers, which is still being elusive. Be interesting to discover what the difference is connectivity wise between different manufactures ie Samsung to LG etc.

Thanks for having me aboard!

Goid evening, ladies and gentlemen. Or otherwise, depending on your time zone. I come here in search of knowledge of PC power supplies, and how to make them do one's bidding.

Hello folks, this looks like a great forum. I've enjoyed fiddling with electronics since I was young. I came across this site while investigating a possible fix for my laptop's super dim backlight.

Hello all,
I've recently retired and decided to build myself a little shop to rehab vintage Heathkit audio gear. I already collected 3 of their finest units so need to get them cleaned up, re-capped and re-caled. Will probably have to rehab some vintage Heathkit test gear too to get the right equipment to test and re-calibrate the audio gear. I stumbled across this forum while searching for info on the "dim bulb" tester. Looks like a great, inexpensive little tester which will be this weekends little project.
Looking for (4) speaker plugs for my Heathkit AR-1515 if you know where I could find them.
Thanks for all the insight and info I will be gleaning from the past posts as I read them tonight.

Hello! I'm a high school student who is quite into electronics. I've done a few things, such as a lab bench power supply and a guitar pedal, and have repaired an old monitor. I have a few good years of experience just fiddling around with basics. I used to lurk here to read things, but now I'm looking for a schematic for my laptop that has no power. I've done basic troubleshooting, and I've decided that some basic component level repair might be necessary.

Hi,

I am a database administrator from Turkey and now living in the UK.
Every broken thing in my house should be diagnosed and tried to be fixed by myself and last week my wife spilled a cup of coffee on her laptop. This will be challenging for me with the forums help i hope i will fix it.

Thanks in advance to all the people for their help.
