Hey all,
Longtime fan of the site here, such a nice community! I've been doing EE stuff for a number of years and I specialize in video game modifications and laptop repairs. See my site here:

Though I also tinker and repair just about everything under the sun. Got some video tutorials I make online too.

Looking forward to being part of the community here

Hello,

I'm a newly graduated mechanical engineer. I love taking things apart and fixing just about anything I can get my hands on. I usually stick with anything off-road or with a motor but I have always tinkered with electronics. I bought a few tv's that wouldn't turn on just to figure them out and learn. I've been wanting to learn to diagnose them for a few months and now that I'm graduated I finally have time. I will be starting a new position as an electrical field service engineer here soon and want to squeeze in a few projects. Thanks and happy holidays!

Hi I am Ajaz, i am from Pakistan,

I do Component repair for fun. I love to work on new projects.

I am inspired by quotes " always try something new, remember, Arc was built by Amateurs, Titanic was built by Professionals."

Nice to "meet" you.

Hi! Thanks for letting me in. I am not in the business of repairing electronics, I am more of a hobbyist or weekend warrior, I buy and sell stuff at flea markets and often pick up things that need repairs. I am fairly knowledgeable and competent with meters and soldering irons so I am not afraid to crack open the case and dig in. I sometimes need assistance and am here to ask you more experienced folks when I do need it. I posted an issue I am having with an LG tv ( really? an LG? wow, it's so rare that they have problems!!) and I am hoping y'all can guide me to a proper solution!! And maybe I will be able to pay it forward with someone else's problem!! Thanks

Hi everyone, thank you for accepting me here

My name's Richard Freeman from TechWizard. I work for myself and offer computer support, repairs & training. As I don't like to see electronics go to waste, I'm part of the Microsoft Registered Refurbisher program. I obtain old (usually non-working) computers through donations, repair them and resell with Windows 10 & Office at low cost to disadvantaged groups such as: low-income families, individuals with disabilities, Charities or non-profit organisations.

Currently, I'm only capable of very basic electronics repair such as replacing USB ports, DC Jacks and large capacitors. I'd like to move into the realms of component level repair so that I'm able to reuse a larger number of faulty components therefore keeping waste to a minimum.

So, I'm looking for support and guidance from the forums, and hope to offer the same as my experience grows

Hi All,

The name is Wilbert and I am from the Netherlands. Just found this site trough Google. Looks very promissing! I've been a Ham for may years now and as the "technisian" in the family I get a lot repairs to do. Many pc and laptops too. The hobby is shifting from Ham to SBC's like the Raspberry Pi and Orange Pi. Everything I know is self tought and google is my friend. Using a Hot Iron is in my blood allthoug the smd components are many times a headeache.

As you can see is English not my first language so sorry for the crummy use of it.

Regards Wilbert

Hi, Can I just say this is a fantastic forum! I have no experience with electronics, but am very keen to learn. I have a problem with my LG Plasma and have spent a few hours reading the boards to try and diagnose the problem and hopefully fix it myself. The bottom half of the screen flickers and goes completely black, but then it will work fine with a complete picture. It's been playing up like this on and off for 12 months and seems to be worse in the hotter months of the year. It's a massive set and takes two people to lift. The repair shop is going to charge me around $150AU just to pick it up and take it to their service centre before they'll do any repairs. It seems there may be a problem with the Y buffer board, but I have heaps more reading to do and lots of stupid questions to ask. I'm learning how to fix iPads, other tablets and phones and am now thinking about developing skills in tv repair as well. This is a great forum and hopefully I'll be able to contribute something worthwhile.
