Hello all. I retired a couple years ago from 42 years with BNSF Railway as a Signal ET. Worked on really weird proprietary stuff that tested the limits of electrical engineering. Our motto was "It only works on paper, but we make it work anyway." The foundation of train signals is, we shove a mix of Low Frequencies (mostly below 1khz "audio" tones) and coded audio chirps (below 3khz) a couple miles down the rails and into trackside signal boxes. If you hook a speaker to the two rails you can actually hear all this stuff going on. The train wheel/axle set causes a dead short and shunts the two rails together, so 'no tones' means it's occupied and that is how the system "knows" there is a train present in that section. The adjoining sections relay this -Occupied or Not status ahead- in the 'coded chirps' back and forth on to the next signal box and so on. Anyway, after retiring I started tinkering with these flat screens to stay sharp and busy, and that has brought me here. The hardest part is finding schematics and parts lists for some of these things, all part of the fun I guess. Thanks to you guys I'm getting caught back up in 'real world' electronics.

Hello my name is Tyler and I'm new to this forum. I live in Seattle and I like snowboarding and snowmobiling. I'm always fixing computers for friends and electronics but want to learn more. Right now I have a TV that I believe the led lights are out but want to make sure.

Stumbled across this site a few times and have learned quite a bit from reading here. Decided to join so i could have better access and ask a question or two here and there. I own a retro video game store and offer repair and refurbishing which involves a fair amount of replacing bad caps in old game consoles.

Hi AJ here. Jumping in to save the plasma for years of family enjoyment. My newborn needs to appreciate the merits of a now ďold school plasmaĒ right? Hope to have fun in the process and learning how to fix!
