I'm Griz. I'm retired and screwing around with computers/phones/electronics keeps me sane.

poor_red_neck here, new to component level diagnostics when a simple blown cap/shorted diode/blown resistor isn't the problem. Hoping to fix a Sharp Aquos TV.

Hi! I've already learned so much from searching and browsing this forum. When I was a kid I was really into electronics and building my own audio circuits. However since then I rarely touched a soldering iron until a couple of weeks ago when my LCD TV broke. That got me into the fun of TV repairs and thanks to that TV breaking and the amazing helpful people in this forum I've already successfully repaired four broken TVs. It's fun that those skills I learned way back then are coming in useful again. Looking forward to more learning and sharing with this forum.

Hello everyone. I am currently trying to repair a Vizio LCD TV. I have been searching the boards but will be posting questions. I have zero television repair knowledge, but I am not bad with electronics in general (not a professional by any means though).

Just blown a brand new screen printing machine sent over from the USA. Should have had a voltage gadget in the wall! Fuse gone, and capacitor blown. Maybe more. So I'm here for friendly advice on a fix

Saying hi as a new member. Actually bought caps previously from the site back in 2006.

Now I'm looking to take an MSI(7207) v2.0 MB and replace caps (since I see a couple bulged already) and it's still new in the box.

Cool Re: New Members - please post your introductions here

Hello to all. As my screen name implies I am am ER Doctor who enjoys working on cars ( father was an auto mechanic), building computers, and repairing things that break, especially electronic ( a requirement growing up). I find this a relaxing change in pace, despite some of the words I utter during these projects. These added skills have come in handy when on medical missions in third world countries. I am amazed and in awe with how well my cell phone works better in remote areas in third world countries compared to how it works in my home.

My last project was soldering an open connection on a ribbon connector in an older model Samsung plasma TV that went out 2 months after the extended warranty expired ( I never buy extended warranties however this was a floor model at a steep discount). I contacted Samsung and they could not or would not provide me with a way to replace the ribbon cable. My current project, a LG pdp42x3 with a blown fuse on the Y-board, led me to this forum when I did a Google search.

Katsuragi in the house. I'm from Malaysia. When I was a kid (4-6 years old), it was my dream to build my own remote controlled car, with *ahem* unique modifications on it.

Well, now I've lost interest in it, but I still like dismantling things every now and then.

If you can't tell by my name, I need(ed) to see pic(ture)s before attempting an ATX supply fixup... Perhaps if it powers up when I'm through, I'll post my results.

Hi Everyone, My name is Kevin, I live on the banks of the Clyde in Dunbartonshire, Scotland. I have been using Computers for 20 years. My very first Computer was an Amstrad 640 PC with a 5.25" Floppy drive.. I have moved on to using Apple based Machines, AS the Amstrad fried my brain. I am now 47, with a failing body.. So may ask for help sometimes with identifying small text on the sides of Components. I am happy to becoming a member.

Ok so suppose I can play along with the little introduction page.

My names Alex and I have just recently graduated college with a degree in Information Science, I have recently began working as a computer technician/ programmer at a somewhat smaller business by my house while i attend grad school.

I think that this site will be helpful to me at work and outside of it.

but mainly i really need to figure out some things that i just cant seem to find from sorting through everything on the internet and im hoping that the people on here will be willing and able to help me out.
