Just joined I hope I`m able to learn as I have been playing around with computers starting in 1999 . I want to learn as I`m always learning. I know sounds corny, If you try, you can learn something everyday.

I replaced the diode and replaced the trace with a wire.
It works. I'm mostly happy. Its reputed to be a noisy pedal, so I wasn't surprised that it IS a noisy pedal. There are mods I can do to it, to make it better.
For now, I use my noise gate with it.
Small victories are still victories.

Hello BadCaps!
I'm a hopeless hacker, a friend of mine said "why buy it when you can make it?" Some would say ... Stupid! But not so! Making and fixing leads to innovation.
My repair adventure is with a Samsung PN60E530A3F given to m me, - no sound no picture, power on and the Samsung startup melody sounds and the red light in the lower right flashes with each command.

My name is Chop, I am 28, and I am currently in school for Automation and Electronics Technology. I enjoy learning about how things work and fixing them (or at least attempting to) if they are broken. Nice to meet all...

Hi,
My name is Daniel and I have been playing with electronics since I was a child, and I'm 38 now. I really got into computers when my mom got our first Compaq Presario in the late 90's. We had so much trouble with that computer, that I stayed on the phone with tech support and that's how I learned everything that I know today. I love tinkering with electronics and learning new things.

Hello all,
I recently started tinkering with some broken tvs that I still have and kept running across references to badcaps forum in my research. Thanks to what I have read here as a guest and thanks to some great videos on YouTube by Tampatec I have got one set repaired and am currently working on another.

Peta, ofcourse some advertising would always be helpful to making this a success.... This forum has existed since October 6th 2003, online the first time at about 9:00PM CST. Being a couple days old, atleast there's traffic...

I don't know if this forum will be a huge success or not, I created it out of requests from viewers, so we'll see how many actually join... If it takes off, I'll be tickled pink!! If it flops, I'll simply remove it.

A little about me?!?

HMMM I'll give a little info... I've been in the electronics field since 1991, with experience ranging from TV/VCR repair all the way to industrial electronics for a very large and well known manufacturer. I started in computers in 1994, just for a change and something I thought would be more challenging.... First of all, in the computer field, I AM NOT a number cruncher (programmer) YUK!!!!! I'm a hardware/network guy... I can install any OS, repair and make it work, but sitting and typing code is more boring than watching flies mate!! So I stick to hardware!! I get the 'thrill' from coming up with cures for problems, creative and USEFUL mods (this DOES NOT include neon lights and corny batman windows in my cases)...

Before the VP6 was around, Abit's poster child was the BP6, dual celeron board... Being one of the pioneers to run dual Coppermines in my BP6 was quite a thrill... Then came the VP6, and the dreaded crap cap problem... Thus was born PROJECT:VP6, which is over a year old... It can be viewed at www.kabalsrealm.com/systems/projects/vp6/. That single article ultimately led to badcaps.net and this forum... I was shocked at the publicity it drew...

A little inside info?!?
Well, age?! I'll say late 20's and that's close enough... I enjoy dealing with the computers, all of this is just a hobby these days, so if it did flop, it's no loss... I'm also a car nut... (300ZX!!!)... I also enjoy flying immencely, although, no I don't own an airplane... YET!!! Maybe if I sell off all this computer junk, I could afford one... HEH I own 3 domain names, and host sites for a few friends on this array... Of course they pay me nothing... HMMM Ohh well... Money isn't all... That's about all I think needs to be revealed... If there's something you really need to know about me, ask... The answer all depends on the question you asked...

Anyhow,
Peta, and everyone else that has joined, Welcome to the forums!! Bring some friends with ya!! :roll:
Very interesting profile... I wish I had your skills man! Anyway, trying to advance a bit on my own DUY projects, soldering iron manouvres and the like hehe.

I am pretty sure I can gain a bit of know-how here in this wonderful forum.

Regards to all forumites and itís a pleasure to be part of it!
