Howdy, I'm Ben and I normally do nothing with component level electronics (I'm a retired Army pilot, and still fly CH47 helicopters). I'm certainly willing to learn, and I'm sure I'll l Iearn a lot on this forum. Heck, I've already learned a huge amount already! Thanks for making this available!

Hello all,

I really don't have a clue what I am doing and signed up because I want to see if my second hand Hakko FX888 is the real thing.

Electronics enthusiast, came across this forum while I was searching for technical information on backlight inverters. Someone suggested bad caps but they look fine.

I have taken apart a washer, found out the transmission was faulty. But before the transmission went out, this washer had gone thru some other issues. Push button to start washer took a crap. Luckily i was able to solder a new one and make it functional all over again. After this second one took a crap I soldered two wires where the two pins for the switch would be soldered, and voila by having these two wires make contact with each other I was able to start my washer.

I perform basic car maintenance, oil changes to installing new brake pads. I love getting down and dirty at work and in bed, but that's another story.

Hi All... "New member" here (AKA OttawaEd).

Just got to this forum by chance, while looking for info on troubleshooting and TV... read a few of your threads and had a few laughs with some of the clever, funny -yet very informative- responses from senior members, and thought it would be a good idea to join!

I am an electronics tech of 10+years, presently working for a children's treatment centre, a music lover -all sorts-, and relentless tinkerer!
Cheers!!

I just wanted to say hello all. I just joined and look forward to learning from reading the posts. I was actually looking at getting an ESR meter and came across this board. I was looking at Bob Parker one. It is higher than what i wanted but looks like it does the job.

I am trying to repair a stereo receiver Yamaha rx v373. I will go into that on another thread.

But if you get board here is a nice YouTube Video of the failure

Hey everyone. I'm a pc gamer and have replaced caps before on a couple of monitors and have reflowed the solder on a 8800GTS video card in my domestic oven and fixed the dashpod unit on my car despite being a complete novice in electronics or pcb repair! I'll have a go at most things if I think there's a slim chance of success as I dislike the modern habit of discarding faulty items vs repair.

My view is that I'm likely to bin it and have to replace the item if I cant fix it, so what do I have to loose?! So anyway, in all cases the repairs I've done so far have been down to dodgy capacitors which has led me to this site.

I hope to find a solution to my GTX580m graphics card which has blown SMD caps, but believe this to be tricky as these kind of caps don't carry identification markings. Perhaps after this post I can make a thread with a picture of the card and a request for help. I've looked for a schematic but google threw a blank and I don't have access to another working GTX580m card. I'm going out to buy a new multimeter tomorrow with capacitance measuring in order to measure other caps on the card but I suspect this isn't the best way to ident them as they could well be different to the damaged/blown ones!
